THE BANNER
This Sunday, we will recognize one Church School Chapel Leader, 34 Church School Teachers and 22 High School Assistants. These volunteers are a blessing. We are fortunate that they take their baptismal promises seriously "for seeing that their child is brought up in the Christian faith and life."

Sunday we will recognize one Church School Chapel Leader, 34 Church School Teachers and 22 High School Assistants. These volunteers are a blessing. We are fortunate that they take their baptismal promises seriously "for seeing that their child is brought up in the Christian faith and life." Here at The Church of St. Michael & St. George our children are not our future, but our present. They bring life and God's love to us. Thank you for your generous offerings that enable us to share this "love of Jesus" with our children.

Every pledge makes a difference. Pledge cards are in the pews or narthex at church or contact us to send one to you at Laurie@csmsg.org or 314.721.1502.  
SPECIAL THANKS to all who supported the Hunger Ministry mission by purchasing geraniums and hanging baskets. We hope everyone was pleased with their purchases.
