In coming to St. George’s I found a faithful, loving community of folks who wanted to hear the Gospel – The Good News – of Jesus proclaimed, and who cared about being a Christian Community active in the neighborhood of downtown Belleville.
The faith community of St. George’s is committed to staying in downtown Belleville, sharing the worship and office space with St. Mark ELCA Lutherans, continuing Outreach efforts, and being centered on Christ providing a welcome to everyone seeking a church home.
We are deeply concerned about those who wear our country’s military uniform and their families. We have very active Sunday School, adult spiritual and education programs, and one of the finest music programs found anywhere! Many of the youngsters and oldsters are active in a variety of healing and renewal ministries. We believe your mind and conscience matter, and we won’t yell at you from the pulpit!
We are both Catholic and Protestant, Evangelical, Apostolic and Reformed, where the whole Bible is read, where all the Sacraments are administered, and where there is political and intellectual liberty, where the worship is dignified and beautiful in accordance with that treasury of public praise and liturgy known as the Book of Common Prayer.
Come and join us at worship on Sundays at 8:00 am (said service), or 10:30 am (choral service). Everyone is welcome!
Fr. Dale Coleman, Rector
