Welcome to St. George....
Where we believe that God's story is Good News for all People.
A little about us -
Saint George is a warm, inclusive, welcoming & caring congregation.
We know one another, pray for each other, & share life's milestones.
We are a family that cares about the wider community and puts that care into action.
Members are involved in the Maple Valley Food Bank, Vine Maple Place, & Kairos prison ministry.
We pray together knowing God will give us strength and wisdom for the work we are called to do in the world.
We are an Episcopal congregation, honoring the best in protestant, catholic and orthodox traditions.
Newcomers will notice that we follow a comfortable order to the service every week with:
Four bible readings
A relevant sermon, reflecting on the readings
The Sharing of the Peace (something everyone should experience)
Communion (everyone is welcome at the Lord's table)
We have two Sunday services weekly – Traditional and Contemporary.
On Sundays we have classes and activities for children and youth, and the nursery is available for both services.
We also invite you to walk labyrinth at any time.
We hope that you can join us for worship soon, and if you have joined us already, we hope you felt welcome and peace in our presence.

St. George Episcopal Church is a church on a mission:
Love God. Love Your Neighbor. Change the World.
As a congregation, we strive every day to live our mission and our core values as disciples of Christ. The horrible events that took place in Charlottesville, Virginia, and other locations, serve as a reminder of that mission and a clarion call for us to live it.
In the recent words of our Bishop, The Rt. Rev. Greg Rickel, in his message following these events:
"What is true now is always true, it is up to us, with every step we take and every act we engage in, wherever we are, to have the best of intentions, the best of ourselves, and most of all to do what we
are called to do as Christians, imitate the one we follow."
We lament the profound way that racism limits and diminishes the quality of all our lives, and are greatly concerned for the well-being of those within our congregation, our colleagues, friends, and neighbors, and the surrounding community who live every hour of every day amidst the ravages of racism and the grip of fear it spawns.
We extend that concern to all those targeted by conscious or unexamined forms of bigotry and hate-based ideology because of their race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion,
class, age, ability, or other differences that are judged by some as not normal or right.
We condemn the ideology and actions advocated and perpetrated by White Nationalists, White Supremacists, and neo-Nazi organizations and individuals that resulted in tragedy.
We lament the hate-filled racist ideology and violent actions that are part of our historical legacy
as a nation, part of the fabric of our current culture, and which are extending their reach with disturbing vigor.
We call upon all our national and local leaders to condemn unequivocally these movements of bigotry and intolerance, as silence and neutrality toward them are tantamount to endorsement.
We stand in support of all those who have spoken out against the forces of bigotry and hatred.
And we advocate for the dignity, respect, safety, and well-being, of all people.
St. George stands as a congregation and people of faith ready to listen, ready to act, ready to help, ready to walk in love.
