STEWARDSHIP SUNDAY  – NEXT SUNDAY, DECEMBER 2, 2018
We ask that you pray diligently and listen with an open heart so as to discern the financial amount God is asking you to give for the support of St. George’s for 2019.  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.

PREPARING FOR THE FEAST OF THE NATIVITY OF OUR LORD
Volunteers are needed for the decorating of St. George’s Church in preparation for Christmas.  If you have time and would like to help, it would be greatly appreciated!  Decorating will occur on Saturday, December 15 at 9:00 am.  A sign-up sheet is on the patio.
