Our Parish Ministries
We welcome you to learn about and consider joining some of our parish ministries. There are many great ways to get involved.
The Parish Council is composed of faithful men and women who are dedicated Orthodox Christians and who sacrifice their time, talents, and resources for the Church. We represent the parish, as clergy and laity together, and seek to fulfill the mission ascribed to us by our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
In the Eastern Orthodox Church, altar servers assist the higher clergy during services. They might carry the cross, candles or liturgical fans in processions and entrances.
Bible Study Group
Join us on alternating Thursdays from 10:00 a.m. - 11:30 am. (see our calendar for exact dates) for a fun and interesting Orthodox Bible Study @ St. George Greek Orthodox Church. Our group is open to all, and meets every other Thursday in the Sinopoulos Room.
The Church School program fosters spiritual learning through age-appropriate lessons, which may include an introduction to church feasts, fasts and liturgical practices, prayers, Bible stories, crafts and projects, and liturgical songs. It begins after communion in the Divine Liturgy.
Music plays an integral role in the liturgical life of the Orthodox Church. Learn more about the mixed voice choir for Divine Liturgy or the Byzantine Choir for Vespers, Orthros, and other services.
Greek Orthodox Ladies Philoptochos Mission Statement:
"To aid the poor, the destitute, the hungry, the aged, the sick, the unemployed, the orphaned, the imprisoned, the widowed, the handicapped, the victims of disasters; to undertake the burial of the impoverished persons and to offer assistance to anyone who may need the help of the Church."
The Greek Orthodox Ladies Philoptochos Society, Inc. is the philanthropic arm of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America that has offered 88 years of philanthropy through a multitude of programs that make a difference in the lives of people in the United State and throughout the world. The Society was established in November 1931, by the late Ecumenical Patriarch Athenagoras I, who was then Archbishop of North and South America.
We believe that the Goal of Orthodox Christian Youth Ministry is the integration of each young person fully into the total life of the Church. We believe that Orthodox Christians must commit themselves to living the Orthodox Faith daily. Worship, Witness, Service and Fellowship are the natural expressions of that commitment. We have regular GOYA (grades 6th - 12th) meetings and JOY (5th grade and under) meetings. Check the calendar to see when they are scheduled.
