Starting on Sunday, July 24, members of the St. George’ s Pastoral Care Team will start offering quiet prayer in the Chapel in between services with anyone who would like it. Our pastoral care team is a group of your fellow parishioners who support Connie+ in reaching out to our community. The team includes Josephine Ross, Terry Doyle, Margaret McHale and Mary Frances Bruce. We know that in the bustle of Sunday mornings, sometimes there’s no time for a quiet moment of prayer with someone who can listen. We are blessed to have our historic chapel available to us, a lovely space that invites calm and provides a respite. Each Sunday the chapel will be open from 9:15 AM to 9:45 AM if you wish to talk to a pastoral care team member for support and private prayer. Whether you have a burden you wish to share, or you want prayers for grace and strength, the chapel door will be open and you’ll find a member of the team available. If you just want a prayer and prefer not to discuss your concern that is an option as well.

At approximately 11:15 AM, following our 10:00 AM service this week, we’ll be hosting an indoor Pot Luck Picnic in Miller Hall to join in fellowship and welcome the Soul Searchers choir before their 11:45 AM performance of PRODIGAL The Musical.
Please bring a dish to share that fits the picnic theme – main dishes, sides such as potato salad, green salad or fruit salad fit the bill, as do desserts like cookies and brownies – anything that brings that summertime vibe indoors with a variety of BBQ and Picnic style items.
If you have any questions about what to bring for the Pot Luck Picnic or the show in general, feel free to contact the office or ask Connie+.
Thanks and we look forward to seeing you all for the Pot Luck Picnic and the Soul Searchers performance this Sunday!
Join us for A Journey with Luke, The 50 Day Bible Challenge starting this week during the Adult Education hour at 9:00 AM on Sundays. For seven weeks beginning today, we will read passages from Luke, meditations, and prayers and then discussed what we have experienced for the following seven Sunday mornings. The books have been ordered and will be provided. Should you wish to make a donation for a book that would be appreciated but not required. So come a take a summer journey with Luke and friends!
This month the ECQ Book Club will be discussing Accidental Saints by Nadia Bolz Weber. This book is both a consideration of how we we encounter God’s grace and the personal memoir. The author’s rich and often funny personal stories perfectly illuminate the theological reflections that are linked to the church year. Please join us for what is sure to be a great discussion .
