The St. George community is grateful for the network of support that occurs as our members discuss the mission work done by the parishioners. In sharing our work with her coworkers at David Plemons, CPA, Julabeth Carden planted the seed that caused the company to adopt Larkspur Elementary as one of its Christmas donation recipients, even inspiring one employee to donate $1000 to the school!

Praying for Others Brings Peace

I am a member of the Sunday 10:45 prayer team. What a blessing it has been. When someone comes to you and your partner and lays their concerns on the table, it is humbling. Praying for someone is a blessing, yes, but it also takes you away from your own issues and problems and lets you focus on someone else – lets you care for someone else through prayer.

I feel blessed that I was given the opportunity.
