Daylight Savings Time starts

On Sunday, March 10th, somewhere in the United States, someone will walk into church thinking they’re a few minutes early, looking forward to worshipping with their community, only to discover that the service is almost over. Don’t let this happen to you! On Saturday, March 9th, don’t forget to set your clocks an hour ahead before you go to bed, and get ready to spring forward!

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.

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.
