Nursery Care: Every Sunday, we offer nursery care for our littlest members ages 2+, beginning at 9:45am at the same time as Sunday School.
Elementary Sunday School:
St. George's offers two levels of Sunday school classes-- primary, for grades 1-3, and intermediate, for grades 4-6. The curriculum focuses on the Biblical stories of both the Hebrew and Christian Scriptures. The children join the congregation during the Passing of the Peace at approximately 10:30 AM and take part in the Eucharist.
Junior high school students, those in grades seven and eight, meet on Sunday mornings. They use a curriculum that focuses on life issues and the faith tradition. Youth events with youth groups outside our parish are scheduled on occasion, as are service projects. Teens who turn 13 within the school year take part in a special ceremony acknowledging this rite of passage. Adapted from the curriculum known as "Journey to Adulthood," the ceremony is called Rite 13. Parents participate in support of their daughters and sons in this rite.
Senior High students meet on Sunday mornings for discussion, and also participate in parish ministries. Tenth graders (ages 15 and up) are offered Confirmation.
Eucharistic VisitorsEucharistic Visitors take the sacrament to the sick and home-bound following the Sunday celebration of the Eucharist. After a period of training, Eucharistic Visitors are licensed by the Bishop for three years.
Pastoral visitors spend time with home bound and ailing parishioners, offering conversation and assistance. Training workshops take place in the parish and regionally.
Senior Girls Friendly
Senior Girls Friendly gives support to its membership through acts of kindness and prayer. Typical is the group's prayer shawl ministry; shawls are knitted and given to parishioners in need of prayer support and a tangible expression of God's loving embrace. This group meets monthly on the second Wednesday following the Noon Eucharist, and also for an annual Christmas party and summer luncheon.
Our parish life seeks to live out the Baptismal Covenant through worship, prayer, mission, and through the relationships we experience in our homes, in our church, in places of work, and in the greater community.
The Altar Guild is charged with the care of sacred items in the church. Members prepare the sanctuary for all worship services. Periodic meetings are held and training sessions are offered for old and new members. All are welcome to join.
Choir is open to all who desire to take part in the musical expression of worshiping God. The choir rehearses on Thursday evenings at 7:30pm and Sunday mornings at 9:15amand helps lead worship at the 10 AM service.
Chalice Bearers & Lectors
Chalice bearers administer the sacramental wine at the time of communion. Some chalice bearers take on the added role of sub-deacon, coordinating the many facets of the worship service. Lectors read the appointed scripture and may also serve as intercessors, offering the Prayers of the People during worship.
