Thanksgiving Food Drive
It’s time for our Annual Thanksgiving Food Drive in partnership with the Beta Club at St. George School, we are collecting donations of food for the San Antonio Food Bank and for Christian Assistance Ministries. Food collected for CAM will be boxed along with donated turkeys to create full Thanksgiving dinners for the clients at CAM. Donations can be dropped off at the collection table in the Narthex by Sunday, November 19th. Contact Marti Nodine for more information: email@example.com.

Come and relax while you listen to some wonderful music as St. George Episcopal Church’s Music Ministry presents the 4th Annual Community Pops Concert! This year our theme is “Gospel,” so you are sure to hear many of your favorites, old and new! For the second year in a row we have invited some guests from our surrounding communities to come and join us. We will be joined by the Schertz United Methodist Church choir and St. John’s Episcopal Church choir from New Braunfels. All are invited to join our St. George community for what is sure to be a fun and entertaining event for all! The concert will be on Sunday, October 8th at 5:30pm.
We will have popcorn, water and lemonade but you may bring snacks or a takeout dinner from your favorite restaurant if you’d like. Bring your blankets and lawn chairs and relax in our beautiful courtyard. You may want some mosquito repellent and a flashlight as well. We’ll see you there!
We are very excited to announce that we will be holding First Communion classes beginning Tuesday, October 10th from 3:15-4:15. Any child in the 1st-5th grades that has been baptized is invited to attend this 5 class series! The curriculum we will be using is modeled on the Eucharist format: We Gather (Lesson 1), We Hear the Word of God (Lesson 2), We Respond to the Word (Lesson 3), We Offer our Gifts (Lesson 4), We Celebrate 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 the Youth & Family Room.
The First Communion class schedule is as follows:
October 10: We Gather
October 17: We Hear the Word of God
October 24: We Respond to the Word
November 7: We Offer our Gifts
November 24: We Celebrate & We are Sent Out
TBD: First Communion
You may register your child for the First Communion classes by contacting Happy Wilson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
