For the rest of January, St. George’s is pausing in-person worship in response to the local surge of Omicron cases.
Doing what we can to avoid catching and spreading the virus supports essential workers our community depends on, and reduces the burden on our schools, hospitals, and other critical infrastructure.
You can learn here about all the ways we’ll be gathering to worship, pray, and learn online.

The Misunderstood Jew: The Church and the Scandal of the Jewish Jesus
by Amy-Jill Levine
New Testament scholar Amy-Jill Levine explores the historical Jesus as a person embedded, and only understandable, in the context of the Judaism of his time. A scholar who is Jewish, she explores how the Church has often made meaning of our Gospel stories about Jesus in ways with painful consequences for the relationship between Christians and Jews. Throughout, she offers interpretations that open fresh possibilities for understanding.
Join us weekly via Zoom at 9:00am.
Each Sunday morning, join us for a time to reflect together on the readings we’ve heard in worship. This is a place to bring our questions, and share our insights and perspectives to deepen our conversation with the Scripture.
You’re invited to join the next parish hike! Come out and spend time connecting with one another and the good creation outside our doors with a walk in the woods together on Saturday, January 15th. We’ll meet at the the Hilton Winn Preserve in Ogunquit at 10:00am. The parking area and trailhead are located on Berwick Rd., 3 miles north of Rt. 1. For a map and to learn more click here.
The Giving Tree
Each year St Georges Church provides assistance to some local families in need of financial assistance during the holidays. This year we have the privilege of helping three families with four children. We provide some needs for each family member, a few fun wishes and some food to stock pantries and cook Christmas dinner. We also request gift cards and gas cards for sustained assistance into the winter months.
Members of our St. George’s community are creating and offering poems, reflections and images as doorways into prayer. These may be places of stillness to face what you are feeling today, and reminders of beauty and communion. We pray they will be signs to you of God’s nearness in all things.
