A PLACE OF WORSHIP, FELLOWSHIP & PRAISE
Sunday School- 9:30 am
Traditional Worship Service 11:00 am

St. George Community Church offers a number of opportunities to worship on Sunday and throughout the week. Sunday School takes place in Elliot Hall at 9:30 am. Elliot Hall can be accessed from the parking lot. There is a ramp to make it easier for those who have limited mobility. Our Traditional Worship Service begins at 11:00 am. We do have fellowship time that takes place between Sunday School and our Worship Service. There is always fresh coffee and goodies, and plenty of good conversation.

When you come to St. George Community Church, it’s evident that we care about you – your spirit, soul and body. Our sanctuary is designed to be a comfortable and relaxed atmosphere so that you can be free to worship the Lord. You won’t find pressure here – feel free to stand, sit, laugh, or cry. You’re in the living room of your Father God – so relax.

Expect to encounter a diverse body of people from all walks of life, so "come as you are”. We want you to feel as comfortable as possible, and, to us, it doesn't matter if you worship in jeans or your "Sunday best”.

 

WHAT WE BELIEVE:

1. The sole basis for our belief is the Bible, which is uniquely God-inspired and the final authority on all matters on which it bears. (2 Timothy 3:16, 2 Peter 1:20-21).

2. We believe that there is one God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (Genesis 1:26, Matthew 3:13-17).

3. We believe in the virgin birth of Jesus Christ (Isaiah 7:14, Matthew 1:18-22), that He lived a sinless life on earth (Hebrews 4:15) and voluntarily paid for our sin by dying on the cross as our substitute (Isaiah 53:4-5; 1 Peter 2:24; Romans 5:8). This accomplished salvation for all whom by grace trust in Him alone (John 3:16; John 6:29). He rose from the dead (Mark 16:6; Luke 18:31-33; Luke 24:1-7), ascended into heaven (Luke 24:50-51; Acts 1:1-9), and is the only mediator (1 Timothy 2:5) between God and us. He will return to earth in power and glory to consummate history (Acts 1:11; 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17; Revelation 19:11-21).

4. We believe that God created humans in His own likeness to have fellowship with Him (Genesis 1:27; Genesis 5:1: Colossians 3:9-10), but they defied God by sinfully going their own way (Genesis 3:1-13). As a result, we need God’s saving grace—not human effort—to end our alienation from God (Ephesians 2:8-9). Only through regeneration by the Holy Spirit can salvation and spiritual life be obtained (Titus 3:5).

5. We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life (Ezekiel 36:27; John 16:13).

6. We believe marriage is an ordinance established by God (Genesis 2:18, 21-24; Matthew 19:4-6; Ephesians 5:21-33). This church defines marriage as the exclusive covenantal union of one man and one woman in which such union is a lifetime commitment. A civil government’s sanction of a union will be recognized 2 as a legitimate marriage by the church only to the extent that it is consistent with the definition of marriage found in this Constitution and Bylaws.

7. We believe in the bodily resurrection of the dead (Philippians 3:20-21; 1 John 3:2); of the believer to everlasting fellowship and joy in the Lord, of the unbeliever judgment and everlasting punishment (Matthew 25:31-47; Revelation 20:11-15).

 

Listen to Sermons, Bible Studies and Special Music

St. George Community Church Bible Studies and Sermons are now available 24/7 from anywhere in the world. If you're unable to make it to church or you are away on vacation, in the military, disabled or unable to attend church for any reason, you can easily hear any sermons you may have missed. You can also listen to the Sunday School lessons each week. 

There is nothing to download. All of our Sermons and Bible Studies are on Youtube. It makes it easier for anyone to listen to God's Word.

Even though it is convenient and exciting to listen to the sermons through our YouTube Channel, we must be mindful that they aren't a substitute for going to church. The Bible tells us to fellowship with other believers. We do realize there are times and circumstances that make it difficult for some to attend a regular service.

"Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.  Hebrews 10:25 (KJV)"

It is our hope that Pastor Ray Schroeder's sermons and Bible Studies will serve to strengthen and edify your understanding of God’s Word.  And, if you are not currently attending a church body, that you will be encouraged to attend a church of sound Biblical teaching.


 

An aside: We stopped off at the St. George Community Church on our way to visit our business partner who lives in Parawan north of St George. We had flown into Las Vegas and stayed over night, driving into Utah on Sunday morning. We attended the Sunday morning service which was lovely, before proceeding north on Rt 15. This was our first trip to Utah and I found the land simply beautiful. We would eventually visit Zion National Park (numerous times), drove to Bryce Canyon National Park, spent a day on Lake Powell with our business partner and his wife, visited the north rim of the Grand Canyon, and had an adventurous hike into the Vermilion Cliffs National Monument during our 4 week stay in Utah. Our eventual base of operations was a house rental in Kenab that allowed us easy access to all these amazing places. The first day in Kanab, I crack the frame and lens of my prescription sunglasses. Instead of panicking I knew that I could order replacement online prescription glasses at my favorite eyeglass frame e commerce site, Eyeglasses.com. I have been ordering replacement lenses from them for several years along with the occasional new frame. As soon as I had my computer up and running I went to their site and ordered the same frame requesting that they add my prescription lenses and send them by expedited mail to our rental house in Kanab. A week later the glasses arrived. I would love to return to Utah for another visit. Perhaps we will stop in at the St. George Community Church if we are in the area.

 

 


 

NOTES FROM YOUR PASTOR

A NOTE FROM YOUR PASTOR:

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

“Christ is Risen!” “He is Risen, Indeed!”

This is the joyful shout and response of Easter morning. Interestingly, this year Easter falls on April Fool’s Day. However, the resurrection is no joke. It is the absolute truth. The resurrection of Jesus Christ in a physical body is so important that the Bible says without it our faith is in vain and we are still in our sins. We must constantly and committedly lift up the truth of Jesus’ resurrection to a world that thinks it is of no consequence or ignores it completely

There are two factors that constitute the truth of the resurrection: the empty grave and the appearances of Jesus after his death. We know that Jesus was completely and totally dead on the cross. After the initial whippings and physical torture he endured he was then nailed to a cross and a soldier punctured his side with a spear. Blood and water rushed out which is a sign of cardiac failure. Let no one tell you that Jesus was not completely and totally dead on the cross. He was dead.

Then Jesus was buried for three days before arising from the tomb. No one was present at the actually moment of his resurrection but when the women arrived at the tomb on Sunday morning it was empty. Romans and Pharisees tried to spread the story that His body had been stolen but no dead body was ever found.

Then Jesus appeared to Mary Magdalene and to the other Apostles and finally to more than 500 believers at one time (1 Cor. 15:6). Many of whom were still alive at the time of the writing of the books of the New Testament and who could have verified to anyone that they saw the risen Lord Jesus. He told his disciples that he was not a ghost and to touch him and see, for a ghost doesn’t have flesh and bones (Luke 24:39).

No rebuttal to the resurrection has ever been proven. The body was not stolen or hidden. The tomb was empty. Jesus appeared physically to his disciples and it was not simply a vision or a spirit. This is the great good news of Jesus’ resurrection. It’s true! And because of Christ’s resurrection we know our sins are forgiven and we have eternal life. Our great and blessed hope is that we, too, shall be resurrected and we shall be changed to be like him.

Also, because of the resurrection we can be assured that every Word of Jesus is true and every word of the Bible is true. Jesus believed all of the Bible and He believed it in a literal fashion. Because Jesus rose from the grave I believe the earth was created in six days. I believe Jesus was born of a virgin. I believe that Christ ascended to heaven in the same resurrection body and that He is coming again in that same body. Praise God for the resurrection! Let’s spread the Good News reminding everyone that this is no April Fool’s joke. This is the glorious truth!

My love be with you all in Christ,
Pastor Ray

Be Active Witnesses to Jesus Christ
Posted on February 22, 2018
THE COMMUNICATOR
MARCH 2018
A NOTE FROM YOUR PASTOR:

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
Recently this country experienced another tragic shooting in Florida at a high school. There are calls to do something more than ‘just pray.’ People want tangible results that bring about change and which limit the shootings we seem to experience more and more. Yet, we need to remember the world in which we live is a fallen world filled with sin. Even at the birth of the Savior in Bethlehem sin raised it’s ugly head as Herod killed the infants under two years of age. Sin is the cause of evil and satan will deceive anyone he can and enlist him or her in his evil plans. On the cross we see sin and satan trying to do their worst to the Son of God only to be defeated by the resurrection on Easter morning. What can we do to be an active partner in this fight against sin and evil?

As we approach Good Friday and Passover on the final weekend of this month our minds should turn to contemplating and meditating on the death of our Lord and Savior on a cross. In this is love, that God sent his only son to be an atoning sacrifice for us, and to give His life that we may live. By his death He paid the price of sin and he calls all sinners to repent and believe in him for everlasting life that begins as soon as one turns to Christ.

The thing the church is called to do is to lift up Jesus Christ and call all people to repent and believe in Him. And, yes, we are to pray. But that’s not all. We are to be active witnesses to Jesus Christ. One of the most frightening phrases a police officer can hear coming over his radio is ‘active shooter.’ We, as born again Christians, need to become active witnesses. We can no longer be passive witnesses for Jesus Christ, thinking that people will come into the church and be saved if we just open the doors. No, we must reach out to the community about us, to the stranger, and call them to faith in Jesus Christ.

I know it’s hard. I struggle with witnessing myself. I can always find a reason not to bring up the subject of Jesus with someone. We all have a number of excuses that all seem valid as to why we are not active witnesses. But if the troubled youth (or the troubled person of any age) is not reached with the gospel of Jesus Christ, then satan will use him for his own evil ends. There is no in-between. We can no longer sit inside the four walls of our church building and think the people who need Jesus will come to us. We must go to them. Church isn’t simply about increasing membership or adding on to the building or creating more programs inside. Jesus calls us to seek and save the lost through the work of the Holy Spirit. What will you say to Christ when He asks you what you did in the war against evil?

Let us contemplate the victory Christ has won for us on the cross and let us pray about how we and this church can become active witnesses reaching others in the war against evil and sin. Let us encourage one another and build up one another in the faith to go and seek and find. To the glory of God!

My love be with you all in Christ,
Pastor Ray

Your Faith Has Made You Well
Posted on February 16, 2018
A NOTE FROM YOUR PASTOR:

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
In February we often think of Valentine’s Day and the promise of romantic love. But the Bible tells us that love is greater than romantic love. It is self-giving in the name of Jesus Christ. To love means to lay down our lives for our friends (yes, and even for our enemies) through the power of the indwelling Christ. How can we lay down our lives? It starts in small ways. One way is through the giving of our time.

We’ve all heard the expression “time is money.” But time is the stuff of life. We give of ourselves by the giving of our time. One important way to give of our time is through listening to others, one-on-one. Jesus was a great listener. He went into villages where the sick and demon-possessed came to him for healing. Frequently he spent all day with sick people—listening to their complaints and hearing them describe their ailments. First of all, Jesus asked people what they wanted, then He listened compassionately before healing them. As individuals described their afflictions and spoke of their faith in Jesus, they felt relief. “Your faith has made you well,” Jesus told them. First He would listen, then He would heal.

Listening is also an important tool for healing and for helping us to relate to one another in a caring and compassionate way. To listen to another is often the way the Lord opens the door for us to share Christ. Christ died to ransom us from the power of sin and selfishness. He laid down His life for us. When we are born again in Jesus Christ His Spirit lives in us leading and guiding us to lay down our lives for others through something as simple as listening. We listen to others out of our love for Christ who leads us to love our neighbor.

The body of Christ, the church, is meant to be a unity where each part cares for every other part and all are built up, in love, toward the head, Jesus Christ. We see that for us to go and to listen to others offers a real way to love in the same spirit as Jesus. In addition, listening to others’ needs and concerns in church shows us how to pray for them; listening also reveals ways to help others. We find that as we pray for others and help them in different ways, we are joined together in love. Then the Spirit will open the opportunity for us to speak to them of Christ—the one who empowers our listening.

May you each grow in your love for one another as you listen and truly hear in the name of Jesus Christ. Happy Valentine’s Day!

My love be with you all in Christ,
Pastor Ray

Christ Over the City
Posted on February 16, 2018
A NOTE FROM YOUR PASTOR:
January 2018

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
 On the first day of 2018, Monday, January 1st at noon, thirty-four Christians from different denominations and congregations met downstairs at our church to join in prayer. The gathering was called 'Christ Over the City' and it was a time of prayer in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of our sins and to lift up Jesus Christ as the only name under heaven by which men must be saved and to pray that many would find salvation in Jesus Christ this coming year. It wasn't a time to honor local dignitaries or to recognize the various ministers and pastors who attended. It was all about Jesus Christ and the need to find forgiveness in Him and to pray for others to find new and eternal life by believing in Him.

We prayed aloud and we prayed silently, agreeing in our hearts and minds with those who were praying. We knew we were one in Jesus Christ.

We knew we were one in the Holy Spirit and we experienced that unity that comes from believing in the only begotten Son of God. Hearts were warmed and spirits were encouraged as we looked toward the start of a new year and all that it had to offer in the way of reaching out to the unsaved with grace and truth. We prayed to show love to all even as we prayed to be bold in sharing the message of the gospel. We sang 'Amazing Grace' at the beginning of the hour and we finished our prayer time by singing 'There Is a Fountain.' A local bagel shop provided free bagels and 'shmear' and we shared over bagels and coffee after our time of united prayer.

God blessed our time together in a unique way that only those in Christ Jesus can know. We prayed that all may come to know Him and His love. There is something more important than ‘the common good’ of a city or community and that is that people come to know Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. To know Jesus is eternal life. We give God all the glory and praise for the time and the prayers we shared. My continued prayer for this year is that Bible-believing Christians and congregations will join together for a united witness--a witness that does not compromise the name of Jesus in any way. I pray that you will have a blessed year and that you will face it with a renewed hope in Jesus Christ and the power of prayer in His name. May God richly bless you and yours in the love of Jesus Christ this day and throughout the year!

My love be with you all in Christ,
Pastor Ray

The Bible is God???s Word
Posted on November 6, 2015)
NOV. 2015 COMMUNICATOR
PASTOR’S ARTICLE
As we prepare to celebrate Thanksgiving this month let us remember the Pilgrims and the reason why they came to this country-- religious freedom. For them freedom meant the right to believe and practice only what is in the Bible, without adding anything to it. In England they were considered fundamentalists and Bible literalists, and were imprisoned. Although they were persecuted they continued to be true to God and His Word.

I pray that we can find inspiration in the Pilgrim’s example of biblical faith. They would rather be imprisoned, or called names than to compromise the Scriptures. Today we face the same challenges when we read and interpret the Bible. If we share with others that we believe the Bible is God’s infallible Word we may face ridicule or scornful judgment. “You sound like a literalist/fundamentalist” may be someone’s response, but we do not let such accusations keep us from a strong and sure faith in the Word.

One of the early church Fathers, Tertullian, wrote about his own faith back in the second century. “I believe Christ died for me because it is incredible. I believe He rose from the dead because it is impossible.” Remember, with God all things are possible and it is impossible to please God without faith. Often we are tempted to put our own reason and logic above the words of the Bible, judging the Scriptures instead of allowing the Scriptures to judge us.

This doesn’t mean that we never use our reason. For we compare Scripture to Scripture; we investigate the historical background of what we’re reading; we look up definitions of words. But in all our study we remember that the Bible is God’s Word to us and our reason is subservient to Him and what He has told us.

Does something in the Bible sound incredible, illogical and unreasonable? Compare it to other Scripture, pray for the guidance of the Holy Spirit, and seek the plain sense of what’s written, trusting in God. Use your logic and reason to serve God’s Word, not to determine which part of the Word is true and which is not.

This Thanksgiving let us be thankful that we live in a country where we are not imprisoned for believing what the Bible says. Let’s remember the Pilgrims and the sacrifices they made so that they could believe and practice what was in the Bible without persecution. And may we find renewed hope and encouragement in God’s Word today!

My love be with you all,
Pastor Ray

Each Sunday and throughout the week we have many people give of their time so that others can experience life change through the ministry of the church.

St. George Community Church Bylaws and Constitution
Proposed Changes to the Church Bylaws - Voting Takes Place at a special meeting on December 3rd, 2014

We believe our community and surrounding area will be transformed for God's glory as an ever increasing number of people are connected to Christ and focus their lives on loving God, loving others, and serving the world. We believe God is moving in our midst and that we are experiencing a "wave" of God's grace and Spirit as we witness God changing lives and opening doors and opportunities in our community.

Love God
-Jesus was once asked what the greatest commandment was. He answered, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind” (Mt. 22:38). God is calling us to love Him and glorify Him with our total being. We believe God is not some distant, removed, impersonal force. God is great and He is good and He is deserving of our love and affection. St.George Community Church seeks to help people grow in their relationship with Jesus, loving Him more and more as they journey through life.
Love Others
- Jesus teaches that the second greatest commandment is this: ”You shall love your neighbor as yourself” (Mt. 22:39). We believe that followers of Jesus must love the world. We must consider others greater than ourselves. In a self-centered, me-pleasing society, this is not easy to do. It will cost us our time, energy, and resources. However, we are never more like God than when we love others sacrificially. We believe the greatest act of love is sharing the life-changing message of Jesus Christ with the world.
Serve the World
- Being a part of a church is much bigger than one hour on Sundays. God has called us to “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you” (Mt. 28:19-20). If we intend to fulfill these instructions (and we do!), we cannot live out our faith as spectators. Each person must use their God-given gifts to proclaim the love of Christ to the world around them. St.George Community Church is committed to a vision of proclaiming Christ locally and globally.

+++++

Prayer Needs

"Come near to me and I will come near to you."  We believe that when we come near to God our lives will be changed.  Coming near to God involves spending time in His presence.  Some of the ways we spend time in His presence are: reading His Word, spending time in prayer, and worshiping together as the Body of Christ.

You will see how God is actively at work around you as you hear biblical truths discussed and applied in your Small Group or Bible Study Group. Your faith and your relationship with God and with others will be strengthened.

Mission Statement: Our Mission Statement is to touch women with the love of Jesus Christ through fellowship and prayer, sharing , excepting and loving each woman as God's own unique creation. 

Statement of Faith

We believe in God, the Father Almighty. Creator of heaven and earth. 

We believe in Jesus Christ, God's only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilot, was crucified, died and was buried; He descended to the dead. On the third day He rose again; He ascended into heaven, He is seated at the right hand of the Father, He will come again to judge the quick and the dead. 

We believe in the Holy Spirit, the church which is the Body of Christ, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting. 

We believe in the Bible, the inspired, infallible, and trustworthy Word of God. 

Our Beginnings... A few years ago , a pastors wife was feeling very burdened and discouraged. While sitting in the sanctuary, an elderly gentleman from the church came beside her and gently squeezed her should with his hand. She was moved by a simple and tender touch and went on to start a ministry to women by that name. later, one of the women from that group moved to Utah and became a committee member of a similar group of women searching for a name for their little ministry in the fall of 2002. 

Tender Touch began as a simple and nameless idea in the minds of a few women with a desire to meet and fellowship with other Christian ladies. These women understood the importance of fellowship and encouragement among the Body of Christ. Eventually a committee was organized consisting of like-minded ladies from several churches in and around St. George. With the Spirit of God leading the way, Tender Touch has grown from a dream to reality uniting many Christian women from beautiful Southern Utah. Many new friendships have developed. Tender Touch's small committee has grown and their efforts have been blessed by God. The future holds many more meetings, quarterly for now. 

The women of the Southern Utah area  are invited to join hands and hearts with Tender Touch.

 

"These things I have spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full. This is my commandment, that you one one another, I have loved You. " John 15:11-12
