Be Our Guest
We believe that we exist to receive and share unconditional love, mercy, healing and peace, so that life has greater meaning and purpose.
Our Mission: "Called by Christ to share God's saving love in all that we do, the parish of St. George serves families, students, and those in need across DeKalb County with our prayer, study, and hospitality, for the Glory of God and His Church."
We'd love to welcome you to our community so be sure to come and visit.
If you're attending college at NIU or in the DeKalb area, please send Father Nick a note. We are working to re-establish the Orthodox Christian Fellowship (OFC, a pan-Orthodox college ministry) and we'd love to have you as a part of our family.
What is Christian Stewardship?
Christian Stewardship is…
…learning how to be a responsible and concerned caretaker of Christ’s Church; it is learning how to enjoy Church life and be happy in Church work., for in Her dwells the fullness of the Spirit of God.
…our active commitment to use all our time, talent and treasure for the benefit of humankind in grateful acknowledgment of Christ’s redeeming love.
…caring for the needs of others.
…offering one’s self to God as He offered Himself to us.
…what a person does after saying “I believe…”, as proof of that belief.
…devotion and service to God and His Church as persons, as families, as diocese/metropolis, as national Church and as Church universal.
