FINANCIAL OFFERING FOR VICTIMS OF TYPHOON HAIYAN IN PHILIPPINES
We have parishioners with family members in the Philippines affected by the typhoon.  Any help you can give them would be appreciated.  The Vestry of St. George’s will oversee distribution of funds.  Use envelopes in pews and write “Typhoon relief” on the envelope or on your check.

EPIPHANY GIFT PROJECT
Epiphany celebrates the Magi bringing gifts to the baby Jesus.  Epiphany Sunday  will be January 5, 2014.    We are  a church that enjoys following scripture and the traditions of our forefathers.  Thus it is appropriate for us to give Epiphany gifts.  More information will follow.

GREENING OF THE CHURCH
Decorating the church for the Lessons and Carols for Christmas will begin after the Sunday School Pageant on December 15 and will continue in the evenings throughout the week, ending on Saturday afternoon, December 21, as time and schedules permit.  Scotty and Sandy Heer will coordinate the project but we need volunteers to help.  If  you are able to help with this project, please let us know using the sign-up sheet located on the patio.

VOLUNTEERS FOR COFFEE HOUR
Many thanks to all who contributed delicious goodies and who purchased them.  Last week’s bake and craft sale was the most successful ever.  Thanks to all.  Please consider volunteering for coffee hour during December.  The sign-up sheet is on the patio.
