“In the Meantime”

By | Adult Ministries, Community | No Comments
Please join us on Thursday, January 14th, at 11:30 AM for the second in our monthly series entitled, “In the Meantime.” Andy Nodine will give a talk on how technology is…or is not…helping us get through this period when we are in between what was and what is to come on so many levels. Andy will talk about what it means to be community in this difficult, uncertain time and how we are using technologies such as Facebook and Zoom to enable our community to continue. He will talk about what is working and what is not, what we are learning, and what we might take with us into the new normal, whatever and whenever it turns out to be. And, of course, there will be a time for open discussion. We look forward to seeing you, even if it’s on screen.
In an interview with Judy Woodruff in the PBS Newshour on New Year’s Day, our Presiding Bishop Curry addressed the imperative of maintaining a community in this time when we must be physically isolated, and the value of technology in doing so. In his uniquely joyful style, he said, “If you’re high tech, Zoom; if you’re low tech, text; if you’re no tech, call! Send a note! STAY IN TOUCH!!” Here’s the link to the interview: https://www.pbs.org/newshour/show/following-the-way-of-love-through-divisions-upheaval-and-uncertainty.

Return to In-Person Worship: Pre-Screening/Reservation Instructions

By | Community, Worship | No Comments

As you may have heard, we are back for in-person worship at 8:30 AM in the Sanctuary. Doors open each Sunday at 8:15 AM  and you may use either entrance (Richards, or Sanctary  Narthex) for worship.  Parking is permitted in all of our lots if you are attending. We will have screening set up at both entrances to the Sanctuary. We are requiring that all attendees who are comfortable coming for in-person worship fill out our St. George Episcopal Church Pre-Screening/Reservation form by Sunday morning before they attend the service. This form will also be linked in each week’s eSpear electronic newsletter. This will speed up our on-campus screening and check-in process once you arrive. It will also help us anticipate the numbers attending and determine how we will set up the worship space. Remember, we are continuing to offer our 10:45 AM worship stream in the same format that we have been presenting each week, and we look forward to seeing you!

Below is a video I have provided that walks you through the Pre-Screening/ Reservation form so that you can anticipate what it will look like.

I am also including a fun video created by the staff to highlight what to expect for the return to in-person worship- This is what it looked like in the Parish Hall when we stared, however, it will be the same process in the Sanctuary. Take a look, and enjoy the fun spirit that went into this video!

As always, please reach out to me if you have any questions. The rest of the team and I are here for you and want to support you in any way possible. Have a blessed rest of your week!

Can Community of Hope Be of Service to You and Yours?

By | Community, Fellowship | No Comments

The St. George Community of Hope International (COHI) has trained lay chaplains who are available to minister to those of you and yours who could benefit from a compassionate listening presence. 

 In 1994 Rev. Helen Appelberg created the COHI training course for lay chaplains to support hospital staff chaplains. The philosophy is “rooted in the ageless principles of The Rule of Benedict and sustained by clinical pastoral practices.”

COHI lay chaplains at St. George are available now. If you would like to request a call from a lay chaplain, email pastoralcare@saintgeorgechurch.org.
