Coffee & Conversation

Dear Fellow Coffee & Conversation Class — BACK TO NORMAL

Last Sunday we joined other parishioners in the (single) Consecration Service and following catered lunch. This Sunday, 11/24/19, class will resume as normal, 9:45 a.m., between services, St. Mark’s Room, upstairs in the Leadership Center.

We (Peggy and Paul) will be in Ann Arbor, MI, this Sunday for the wedding of our son David. In our absence, Fred Goodwin has graciously agreed to facilitate C&C Class. The springboard for “conversation” will be the questions on page 196, relating to Chapter 11 in Max Lucado’s book Anxious for Nothing: Finding Calm in a Chaotic World.

As usual, you may let the discussion follow wherever the Lord leads you.

In Christ,
Peggy and Paul Foerster

By | Adult Ministries, Called to Serve, Community | No Comments

This month’s Impact Report features Linda Canas and Pat Barger’s Women-to-Women Ministries and Cliff McLean’s support for Music Writing Ministry for Vets. Read about how folks from St. George support these ministries in the November Impact Report.

Many St. George parishioners touch the lives of people every day in San Antonio and throughout the world as they “love and serve” in the name of God. “Stories of Humanity and Healing” seeks to share with you the human stories of that work. Do you have a story to share of reaching out to your fellow human beings? If so, please send it to impact@saintgeorgechurch.org.

Food and Friends Gathering

Our First Food and Friends Gathering (30s – 50s Group) was a great success! We got to chat and learn more about those we didn’t know very well, and old friends also had the opportunity to spend some time together.

We all enjoyed fajitas and even got to celebrate a birthday with some birthday cake. We hope that you can join us for our Food and Friendsgiving on November 15!

You should receive an Evite soon, but if you want more information, please contact Jennifer Kirkland at jkirkland@saintgeorgechurch.org.
