Saint George the New Martyr Coptic Orthodox Church is in a remote but growing area in Riverside county. Several families from Saint Abanoub and Saint Antony Coptic Orthodox Church in Norco and Saint Mina Coptic Orthodox Church in Riverside were instrumental in starting the service in this area. One of the families donated a house in which serves could be held until a building is purchased or built. His Grace Bishop Serapion celebrated the first liturgy on July 11, 2005. From that date until the ordination of Father Abraam Megally on November 25, 2007, the church was served by the late Father Samuel Samaan, Father Macarius Shehata, Fr. Youhana Ibrahim, and others. Most recently, the congregation purchased a beautiful large facility which serves as their present location.
