Welcome to St George’s Episcopal Memorial Church. Our parish has been an important presence in the Bismarck community since 1880, and we continue to meet the Living God in this place today – through worship, education, outreach, and most of all, through the relationships we have created with each other.

† WE BELIEVE that through Jesus Christ we are meant to faithfully and joyfully serve God and our neighbors.
† WE WORSHIP as a community of believers who make people feel welcome from every walk of life. We value and welcome the diversity of all people.
† WE SERVE seekers inside and outside the church to live in accordance with the gospel of Jesus Christ.
