FEAST OF THE EPIPHANY OF OUR LORD, TO BE CELEBRATED SUNDAY, JANUARY 5
Please join us for an Epiphany party which is planned after the 10:30 am service.

EPIPHANY GIFT PROJECT
What gift will you give Jesus this coming Epiphany?  Did you know St. George’s has a wish list of items needed for the coming year?  These gifts  are varied: anything from colored construction paper for the Sunday School children to oil for candles on the altar.  Your gifts will be presented at the church on Epiphany Sunday, January 5th.  A sign-up board is located in the coffee hour area.  If you have any questions, please speak with Ann Whitfield.

VOLUNTEERS ARE REQUESTED TO STAY AFTER COFFEE HOUR NEXT SUNDAY TO HELP TAKE DOWN AND PACK UP THE CHRISTMAS DECORATIONS

VOLUNTEERS FOR COFFEE HOUR
Please consider volunteering for coffee hour for most dates in January and February and March.  It is a wonderful way to give back to God and our church.  Coffee Hour is very important for fellowship and for welcoming new members into the parish.  Oft times it might be the only opportunity for our parish family to socialize and for visitors and new members to meet us.  Sign up sheets are located on the coffee hour table.
