Everyone is welcome at St. George’s Anglican Church, Lowville, regardless of their social status, race, sexual orientation, or other apparent differences. We write those words every week in our service bulletin, because that’s what we mean when we say that St. George’s has a progressive theology.
As part of that commitment, we have made sure that our building is fully accessible, including an elevator from our foyer to both the worship space and the parish hall. Our washrooms include a separate handicap facility.
We’re not after your money; we want to spread the ‘good news’ of Jesus Christ. The news is indeed good, because the Gospels reveal that Jesus was inclusive, teaching us to love one another. That kind of love is not squishy or romantic. It means that we are to respect other people, whether we are similar or different; whether or not we agree with everything they believe. We will not try to brainwash you with doctrines that you must believe.
Worship with the St. George’s Congregation
Coming to church at St George’s is a joy, not a duty. Our Sunday worship is joyful, not gloomy, but still respectful, affirming our belief that God deserves our thanks and praise. The service has two main parts, the Word, where the Bible is read and explained, and the Sacrament of the Eucharist, also known as Holy Communion, the Mass or the Lord’s Supper.
From the worship perspective, we welcome everyone at the Lord’s Table. We encourage you to partake in the sacrament of Holy Communion, whether or not your background is Anglican.
While not strictly a special service, Sundae Sunday is a time for us to have fun together after worship. Enjoy ice cream and many toppings as we get together and chat.
