Blessing of Campers and Staff — Every Sunday

By | Children's Ministries, Community, Youth | No Comments

Beginning June 2, we will have a special blessing for our young people as they head off to various summer camps at the 10:45 AM service.

If your child will be attending Camp Capers, please let us know their name(s) and what session they are attending. In addition to a blessing during the church service, St. George will send a letter to them while they are at camp. Please email hwilson@saintgeorgechurch.org with your information.

Impact Report

By | Community | No Comments

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.

High School Graduates To Be Honored

By | Community, Youth | No Comments

Our high school graduates will receive their Bibles during the 10:45 AM worship service on Sunday, May 19.

We will be offering prayers for all graduates during both worship services. It is our hope that these Bibles will be a treasured source of guidance and inspiration for our graduates as they begin a new journey in their lives. We thank you for your contributions.

A Message from Our Rector

By | Community, Worship, Youth | No Comments

Dear Friends in Christ:

Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

This past Sunday, I announced two items of interest to all in our SG Community.

First, beginning on Sunday, September 8, we will launch a third, late afternoon worship option. The vision for this is to reach those in the surrounding community who, for whatever reason, cannot make it to any church on a Sunday morning. It will also be a help to our own folks who, more and more, find their Sunday mornings filled with personal and professional activities. At this point, what I would ask is that you pray for the design team (Keith Earle, Jessica Leibowitz, and myself) and pray for an opportunity to invite someone you feel God is calling you to share this new offering.

Second, the Vestry and School Board will begin a review of bids from several local contractors on a possible renovation and refreshing of the Parish Hall. The plan would include enlarging the stage for both Church and School Fine Arts performances, raising the ceiling, installing new flooring, and generally upgrading this much-used space. Timing and cost are the two primary considerations and will be the two main factors on moving forward. I will keep you informed about the process as it moves along. Please do pray for the Vestry and School Board as they weigh the options that will come before them. Please feel free to ask questions of Keith Earle, our Senior Director; Susan Alwais, our Senior Warden; or me.

Our beloved community of St. George is in a very healthy place right now – which is a wonderful blessing.  I believe strongly that God is calling us to share that blessing by reengaging our mission of joining Jesus on the mission fields of our life. We are called to go to the mission fields that are nearby and far away, the familiar and the unfamiliar, in order to share the Good News of Jesus with those whose hopes have faded, whose faith has waned, who seek the Light of Christ to drive away the inner darkness which besets their hearts.

I am grateful for all that God is doing among us, around us, and through us! I am grateful to have each of you, my St. George sisters and brothers, as partners in this mission of Jesus to which we have been called!

Peace,
Ram+
