Last week, 40 middle school kids from CSMSG provided service to several different agencies in the St. Louis area. The week included packing food at the Food Pantry, doing repair work at the Mary Ryder Home, and taking the kids at Gateway 180 Shelter to the zoo and then a cook-out lunch in Forest Park. The experiences were grounded in faith, preparing those 40 middle schoolers for living that faith into the world, and will stand them in good stead for the rest of their lives. Your pledge dollars supported Middle School Mission Week. Thank you for your pledge.
If you have not yet made a pledge and wish to do so, you may pick up a pledge card in the pew, narthex, on the website at www.csmsg.org , or call the Church at 314.721.1502. Thank you!
