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.

If you have any questions or think we can help you, please do not hesitate to contact the church office or talk to any of our parishioners or stop in for coffee. If you are looking for a church home, we invite you to explore this website, and hope you will worship with us soon. All are truly welcome here. We look forward to meeting you soon.
