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 firstname.lastname@example.org with your information.
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.
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!
What is Le Marché?
- Le Marché is an entrepreneurial event taking place on the St. George campus on Thursday, April 25, from 9:00 – 11:00 AM. For the past few months, every 4th-8th grader has been involved in gathering partners, forming businesses, attending conferences and study sessions, crafting business plans, proposals, and marketing tools, and most importantly, designing and producing products to showcase at Le Marché on April 25.
- We will have more than 75 different booths selling amazing and unique products at Le Marché.
- All profits from Le Marché will be donated to CHAIN OF LOVE.
More information on Le Marché will be sent out soon!
It takes a lot of Easter treats to make a successful Easter egg hunt, so if you’re looking for a way to serve, we could use your generous donations of Easter treats to make the St. George Easter Egg Hunt a success!
We kindly accept candies in all varieties; nut-free chocolates, stickers, temporary tattoos, bouncy balls, or other small toddler friendly prizes and treats!
Please bring your donated Easter treats to the Leadership Building by April 10! Please contact Happy Wilson at email@example.com if you have any questions.
We had an amazing turnout at this year’s Pancake Supper! We had parishioners and school families of all ages that came together in fellowship before the Holy season of Lent.
Not only did we share a wonderful meal together, but we were also able to raise over $700 to benefit the St. George Camp Scholarship fund! Because of your generous donations, kids from St. George Church or School, who may not have the financial ability to attend camp, will now be able to! This is an amazing achievement!
The Beta Club will host a special Treat Sale on Wednesday, April 17, during all lunches. We will be set up in the Gathering Area. Proceeds will benefit the Chain of Love campaign. Because most items are priced well under $1, there is no need to send large amounts of money with your child. Please encourage your child to eat his/her full lunch before purchasing at the Treat Sale.
Thank you to the Beta Club for supporting Chain of Love!
Join us for Shrove Tuesday on Tuesday, March 5. We will celebrate “St. George style” with pancakes, pancakes, and even more pancakes at our Annual Pancake Supper from 5:30-7:00 PM!
Along with the pancakes, we will be serving sausage and fruit. Don’t forget to stick around for the pancake races! Donations are accepted and will go to benefit the St. George Church Camp Scholarship Fund.
