First Communion Class – Spring 2017

By | Children's Ministries, Fellowship | No Comments
First Communion Classes

We will be holding First Communion classes beginning February 5th during the 10:45AM worship service! Any child in the 1st-5th grades are invited to attend this 5 week class series. The curriculum we will be using is modeled on the Eucharist format: We Gather (Lesson 1), We Hear and We Respond to the Word of God (Lesson 2), We Offer our Gifts (Lesson 3), We Celebrate (Lesson 4) and We are Sent Out (Lesson 5). Because children learn with all their senses, activities and instruction will be included that engage them throughout each lesson.
The classes will be led by Happy Wilson in Ms. Partin’s room (Middle School building next door to the Sacred Studies room) during the 10:45AM worship service on the following Sundays: Feb. 5, Feb. 19, Feb. 26, & March 26. Fr. Ram will lead lesson 4, We Celebrate, on March 5 after the 10:45AM worship service. Children attending the classes must be baptized and the First Communion service will take place on Sunday, May 21st.

The First Communion class schedule is as follows:
February 5: We Gather
February 19: We Hear and We Respond to the Word of God
February 26: We Offer our Gifts
March 5 (class will be held after 10:45 service): We Celebrate
March 26: We are Sent Out
May 21st: First Communion

You may register your child for the First Communion classes by contacting Happy Wilson at hwilson@saintgeorgechurch.org.

Youth Group at Laser Tag

By | Community, Fellowship, Worship, Youth | No Comments

The St. George Youth took 11 kids to Laser Quest this past Sunday to enjoy some laser tag fun.  I must say that my undefeated record against my youth group kids is no longer in play as I took it on the chin as Will Wickersham ( 6th Grade ) and Sebastian Trevino ( 7th Grade ) blasted me on more than one occasion.  It’s important to me that all kids who come through our program know that ALL formation does not necessarily have to take place at St. George.  Laser Tag, in very different way, is just as important as the fellowship we develop and nurture on Sunday mornings on campus.  One of the things I enjoyed most about out Laser Quest experience was my attempt at trying to connect Father Nate Bostian’s sermon to my “code name” at Laser Quest.  Father Nate Bostian referenced ,in his sermon, how Jesus gets “cranky” in Matthew’s Gospel, chapter 2​​3.  I promptly decided that my code name at Laser Quest was “Cranky Jesus” and I especially found it hilarious when I tagged my kids and at the end of the game it said “you have been tagged by Cranky Jesus.
