George W. South Memorial Episcopal Church of the Advocate
We are a community of many people who call the Advocate home. Some of us come for worship. Some come for social services. Some come to volunteer. Some come for events. Some come to usher change into the world. Some are just connected. We are the Church of the Advocate.
The Church of the Advocate lives the gospel of Christ and is a welcoming community dedicated to spiritual enrichment, human services, community programs and the pursuit of social justice.
Our greatest strength is in our partnerships that permit us to carry on this great work of nurturing, shepherding and educating. We are always seeking volunteers or those who will generously donate a portion of their resources so this work can continue. Call the church office to lend your support.
