Bulletin Announcements For Trinity 25, November 13, 2016

INSTRUCTION ON THE FAITH: Where do we find Mass Propers for Trinity 25 in the BCP?
 
TODAY IS STEWARDSHIP IN-GATHERING, SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 13
We ask that you pray diligently and listen with an open heart so as to discern the financial amount as well as time and talent God is asking you to give for the support of St. George’s for 2017. It is through these offerings that we are able to fulfill God’s commandment: “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you.” Matt. 28:19-20. A copy of the Commitment Offering/pledge form is enclosed. In celebration of Stewardship Sunday, a special coffee hour is planned after each service today.

RED WAGON PANTRY – NOVEMBER IS THANKSGIVING MONTH!
If you know of someone in need of food, please speak to Fr. Hines so the food pantry can assist. For November, the Red Wagon is accepting Food Gift Certificates from any grocery store or cash donations as well as food donations.

CHOIR FUND
As we approach Christmas 2016, our choir fund is short of cash and unable to cover the costs of our holiday expenses. Please prayerfully consider making a small donation to the choir fund.

GREETING VISITORS – STEWARDSHIP FOR ALL!!!
The ministry of being a Greeter is more important and rewarding than you may realize. It is important to make visitors feel welcome. Just saying “hello,” asking visitors to sign the guest book, and giving them a small gift helps people feel comfortable. If you are interested in helping with this important project, please speak with Ann Whitfield.
