The 133rd Synod of the Diocese of Springfield hereby commends the Biblical standard of the tithe to all members of the diocese as a vital element of being faithful Christians; and that the 133rd Synod encourages all members of the diocese who have not yet adopted the tithe as part of their personal financial commitment to God to move toward the tithe by giving to God a larger percentage of their income in each of the next two years with the firm purpose of achieving the tithe by A.D. 2012.

Dear St. George’s Parish,
Christmas 2010 is just around the corner! Community Service is sponsoring the Lutheran Family Services Children’s Home and Foster Care Program beginning Nov. 7th – 28th. Please take a Christmas tag or two off the Tree and a child/children’s information from the manila envelope. Please return wrapped gift with label no later than Wed., Dec. 15th. Community Service asks you not spend more than $50.00 per child. Do not feel bound to purchase large ticket items, all kids dream big. However, if a child asks only for a pair of sox, please include a doll, teddy bear, a watch or a board game, to make their Christmas day special!
Thank you for your continued support for Community Services Christmas Project
