Childcare and Nursery Help Needed

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

The St. George Children’s Ministry is growing and we are in need of more members to join our Nursery staff.  We routinely need substitutes to work on Sunday mornings, but we also need more people available for weekend and weeknight worship opportunities and special events.

At this time, we especially are in need of three people to work in our nursery as childcare for a new group forming on Sunday evenings from 5:00 – 7:00 PM.  This group will meet every other Sunday beginning on May 1.

Applicants need to be age 16 or older, and must be willing to attend a Safeguarding God’s Children workshop. All applicants must also pass a background check. These positions can be paid hourly or be for volunteer service hours.  Please email Haley Bankey at hbankey@saintgeorgechurch.org in you are interested.

Keith Earle – Reflection on the Mission Trip to Haiti

By | Called to Serve | No Comments

Haiti paintingWe are so happy to share with St. George about the wonderful time we have recently had with our partners in Haiti. During our six-day visit we were overwhelmed and filled by the love and friendship that surrounded us.   Fr. Noe Bernier (our new priest there) and his team of hosts and staff were absolutely amazing in their care of our team.   From the moment we landed until we took off back to Texas we were surrounded by caring  friends who made sure our every need was met.   Our time was filled with wonderful food, fellowship, and quality development time with the school and church community there.  Fr. Noe ensured that we had the opportunity to spend time with the school’s students, faculty, and staff making our partnership stronger than ever.Robbie Haiti

We spent time taking pictures of student life and teachers, distributing donations, teaching music, and creating bonds between generations as we played and learned with the students. We were overjoyed by the continued progress on the campus as we saw the finished kitchen facility,  repairs to the school, and the walls going up for the rebuilding of the church! There is still work to be done and we will share the needs and dreams of our friends in Haiti with our community here at St. George.  We cannot wait until our next visit with our friends, and we are especially energized as we head into the Chain of Love event that supports the work of this partnership!

Blessings,

Keith Earle

Bless our High School Graduates with Your Favorite Scriptures

By | Uncategorized, Youth | No Comments

St. George Episcopal Church would like to present a special gift to each of our high school graduates to mark this momentous milestone in their lives, and we need your help.  We will be giving each high school graduate a personalized Bible with scripture blessings from our parishioners highlighted throughout each of their Bibles.

If you have one or more favorite scriptures that you would like to share and have highlighted in the graduates’ Bibles, simply email your list to Happy Wilson at hwilson@saintgeorgechurch.org by Friday, May 6.

Our high school graduates will receive their Bibles during the 10:45 worship service on Sunday, May 15th. 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 and we thank you for your contributions!

By | Called to Serve, Community | No Comments

St. George Member Bridget Lynch asks for help from the St. George Community.

Bridget writes, “My TMI Science received a small grant earlier from the TeamUp program. Our club’s project is that we create hands-on science curriculums for elementary students and take it to children in Title One schools. So far, we have worked with Mead elementary. With the large grant of $20,000, we want to expand all over San Antonio and bring this opportunity to kids in Locke Hill, Larkspur, et al.  The community is allowed to vote for which project they want to receive the large grant.  Voting continues through April 1st.  We need votes from the St. George community!”

To learn more about their project, click here.

Use the hashtag #TUCvoteTMI in any social media post this week or vote for TMI by visiting: http://www.teamupchallenge.com/vote/

Any help that we can get from the community would be awesome!
