STEWARDSHIP INGATHERING SUNDAY DECEMBER 3
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 2018.  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

BIBLE SAFARI CONTINUES TODAY, SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 26, 9:25 am – 10:15 am
The trip of a lifetime continues!  The Bible Safari survey of the Bible can be very meaningful to those who have little or no knowledge of the Bible, as well as to those who would like to reacquaint themselves with this timeless and important book.  From fanciful and trivial facts that add some fun to this study, to very serious sessions delving into the Word of God, you will find this tour of the Bible to be life changing and life affirming.  Come and explore!!!!  Class is led by parishioner, David St. John.
