STEWARDSHIP 2017  
Your pledge dollars at work! The Church School first graders acted out the story of Jesus calming the storm in chapel. Your pledge dollars support the education of our youth, the future leaders of The Church of St. Michael & St. George. I'm sure we have Vestry members and Lay Ministry leaders who acted out stories of Jesus when they were in the first grade? Let's ask them! Thank you for your support!

Every pledge makes a difference. Pledge cards are in the pews or narthex at church or contact Laurie Brown at Laurie@csmsg.org.
