St. George's mission is to share together God's work in our lives through liturgy and sacrament, through joyous and caring fellowship, and through courageous and compassionate engagement with the world.

Dear People of St. George's,

 Something very beautiful has been waiting in the wings for your worship space! The new altar set and vestments have arrived and are quite spectacular. These gifts have been given through the generosity of a group of parishioners who had noticed the fading and worn appearance of the old set.




We will bless the new at this Sunday's worship (part at 8 AM, the rest at 10:00 AM service) so the whole parish can share the experience of inaugurating use of these beautiful gifts.

Our music this week includes St. George's Bluegrass performers and an original musical setting of a Richard Rolle prayer by Cynthia Pound. We abound in praise and thanksgiving!  

Thanks be to God.

Appreciatively,
Pastor Barbara

Getting to Know You!

As we begin another year of parish services and unforgettable events we have an opportunity to get to know each other better. One helpful way to introduce ourselves as long-time parishioners, newcomers and Pastor Barbara… is to wear a name tag when we are at St. George's. Starting this week name tag blanks and pens will be available. Look for the yellow sign and sample name tag on the sofa table in Jerusalem Hall …and thank you! For you enjoyment click here :)

Career wardrobe collection drive is this coming Tuesday November 14 at St Georges. Please come and join in the fun sorting the clothing donated by the surrounding local community ,5-7 pm in the back of the church. A quick easy way to help out!

First a huge thank you to all of you who helped on November 4th – we accomplished so much that I have revised the plans I had made for November 18th!

We are now planning on making some plant supports to protect and support the new trees that have been put in, trimming back more of the bushes around the sign at the corner of Darby Road/Ardmore Ave.,cutting shrubs away from the buildings and a/c units, and spreading some mulch if we still have time and energy. Also there is a pile of logs by Sulgrave Ave. from some of the trees we took down. Parishioners are encouraged to help themselves, otherwise we will have to try and move them out of the way!"

Please feel free to email me on sfarnsworth@dca.net or phone me on 610-446-6226 if you have any questions.

Thank you everyone!
