THIS Sunday, February 10
One Service 10:30 AM
A Unified Worship Service and a
Congregational Meeting

This Sunday we’ll have a single worship service at 10:30 AM in the sanctuary. Since we’re hosting CARITAS for the week, we need to work with our adapted space, and thus the single service.

Following worship we will convene our Congregational Meeting. This will allow us to elect Elders, hear about the state of the church and unfolding plans, learn about the 2019 Budget, and launch our “For His Glory” Campaign. Both Covenant Partners and friends of St. Giles are welcome.


This Sunday at St. Giles

Live-Streaming Bible Study and Worship
Matt Sherrard now has us set up to live-stream various events. We’ve experimented with both Wednesday night Bible study and Sunday morning worship. If you’d like to check it out, use this link to go to our new YouTube channel. We’re doing it simply – no fancy sound or cameras. But it’s good enough to carry the content. 
So, if you can’t come yourself on Wednesdays at 6:30 or Sundays at 9:30 or 11:00, join us via Live-Stream via this link:  http://bit.ly/StGilesLive
And if you miss the Live-Stream time, you can find the video later at:  http://bit.ly/StGilesYouTube
