FR. DALE IS TEACHING THE BOOK OF DANIEL AT THE ADULT FORUM, 9:15 am for the next several Sundays. This is a fascinating book of the Old Testament comprising two separate parts which were put together dating 165BC, the time of the Jewish rebellion against the Syrians. It gives hope to God’s people, especially at times of great suffering and living under foreign oppression. For the past 150 years, it has been used to support all sorts of cranky ideas stemming from the fantasies of John Nelson Darby, now found in the Left Behind fictions. Come and study this Apocalyptic book at St. George’s Adult Forum.

COMMUNITY SERVICE COMMISSION is collecting items for Bethany Place during the month of October.  Items needed this year are personal care and hygiene items for men and women, and baby diapers.   Thank you in advance for your support.

2012 FLOWER CHART IS POSTED ON THE KIOSK IN THE PARISH HALL.  The cost of the altar flowers is $40.  Altar flowers can be given in memory of a loved one or occasion of celebration.

THIRD QUARTER FINANCIAL STATEMENTS are on the table in the Canterbury Room.

PLEASE NOTE: A joint meeting of St. George’s Vestry and St. Mark’s Church Council on Sunday, Oct. 16 will initiate a long needed dialogue between the two churches.  We encourage any folks leading various ministries to come.  This will be an open meeting, beginning at 4:30 pm in the Parish Hall.

THE DIOCESAN SYNOD OF SPRINGFIELD will be hosted this year by St. George’s on Friday and Saturday, October 21 and 22.  The Diocesan Eucharist will be a joyful event, Friday evening at 5:00 pm in the Church. Please plan to attend!
