Fifth Sunday Potluck

When a month has five Sundays, St. George's takes advantage of the "extra" Sunday by holding a potluck lunch in Kleberg Hall after the 10:30 service, where we enjoy good food and fellowship. Our next Fifth Sunday Potluck is on Sunday, April 29. This is a great opportunity for extra visiting time with church friends and guests. Bring something to share if you can, but if you can't bring anything, don't let that keep you away. There's always plenty to go around!

Ash Wednesday Service

Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of the season of Lent, the period of forty days (excluding Sundays) leading up to Easter. This service features the imposition of ashes, a reminder of our mortality and dependence on God, and an invitation to reflection and repentance. Lent is traditionally a time of self-examination and repentance through prayer, fasting, self-denial, and reading and meditating on scripture. The forty days of Lent symbolizes the forty years in which the Israelites wandered in the wilderness in search of the Promised Land. It also recalls the time Jesus spent in the wilderness in fasting and prayer, during which he was tempted. A common practice during Lent is to participate in a Lenten discipline; this can involve giving something up or taking on a new practice, in order to deepen your faith and bring you closer to Christ. We hope you will join us as the community of St. George’s journeys together into the Lenten season.

Christmas Eve Pageant

Long ago, before most people could read, before the church spoke the language of the people, there were storytellers. Traveling theater troupes went from one village to another to tell the stories so important to our faith. On Christmas Eve at 5:00 pm, we will continue in that tradition, as we present the Pageant of the Nativity. ALL children, families, friends, neighbors – whether you regularly attend St. George’s or not – are welcome to participate. Contact Suzette Puckett or the church office with any questions.

The Story of Jesus: A Reading of Mark

In order to better understand the complete story of Jesus, the St. George’s community gathers each year in Advent to explore together the gospel appointed in the lectionary for the new church year. During the liturgical year starting with this Advent, most of the gospel readings will come from the gospel of Mark. We will gather on Sunday, December 10th, from 5:00-6:30 pm, in Kleberg Hall, to read through the Gospel of Mark and sing hymns together. Reading a complete gospel together gives us the opportunity to gain a sense of the story of Jesus’ life in its entirety, and a much deeper context for each of the short passages we’ll hear throughout the next year. Please join us as we ponder together the Story of Jesus.
