Plan Your Visit
Worship is central to our common life, especially on Sunday mornings. At St. George’s we worship in a variety of ways because our God is both King and Shepherd. Traditional worship in the Nave and Chapel demonstrates God’s transcendence and majesty, and our modern service called The Table reveals God as our friend and shepherd. We invite you to join us for worship in whichever time and setting allows you to know God more deeply.
10:05 - 10:50am
We offer dynamic, Scripture-based offerings during Sunday school hour for adults, youth, and children that are intentionally selected for the needs and interests of parishioners at St. George’s. Each class is approachable, theologically rich, and formative in your life with God. In addition, you may join us for fellowship at Coffee Hour in the Gathering Space. Please consider joining us on a journey to deeper connection with Christ and with each other.
Please follow the links below to learn more about offerings for each age group.

For 1st - 6th graders | Johnson Hall
Chapel allows space for kids to be directly involved in readings and worship, to cultivate community through games and conversation, and provide teachings that are targeted for a younger audience. On the first Sunday of the month, St. Dunstan’s Choir joins us to lead us in singing.
For those attending the 8:45am Rite II service in the Nave, kids start with the adults in and during the Gospel hymn they follow an acolyte to Kids Chapel in Johnson Hall. Kids attending The Table service in Legacy Hall can go directly to Johnson Hall at 9:00am. Everyone will return to the service before Communion.

Can I receive Communion at St. George’s?
All baptized Christians are invited to receive Communion. Those who have not been baptized are welcome to come to the Communion rail for a blessing. You may indicate your desire for a blessing by crossing your arms over your chest. Gluten-free wafers are available upon request.
At what age can my child receive Communion?
This is a question many parents ask as they are striving to raise their children in the church. Once we are baptized — regardless of our age — we are welcome to receive Communion. Our Book of Common Prayer (p. 858) indicates that at the time of baptism, we receive the inward and spiritual grace of union with Christ in his death and resurrection, birth into God’s family (the Church), forgiveness of sins, and new life in the Holy Spirit. Once a child is born into God’s family, that child is welcome to participate in Communion at any time.
We also offer an option 5-week Communion Class to help 3rd graders grow deeper in their faith as they gain understanding about the prayers, actions, and elements of Holy Communion. Many parents like to use this class to prepare their child for first Communion, but the class is equally beneficial for children who have already been receiving communion. Questions?
