Announcements – June 22, 2014

Welcome to St. George’s. We are glad that you have chosen to worship with us today. Please sign our guest book and join us for refreshments and fellowship after each service.

The Summer Christian Education schedule is here. There is no Sunday School for children or youth during the summer – the Nursery continues to be staffed from 9:00 am through the 10:30 service, and youth are welcome to attend the Summer Forum.

Summer Forum – Parishioner Dee Zopp continues her study of “Bad Girls of the Bible” today with Hagar. Everyone is welcome to join us in the Parish Hall at 9:10 am for this fun Bible study.

Our Diocesan Cursillo weekend is finishing today at Toddhall in Columbia. Everyone is welcome and invited to take part in the closing service, Clausura, this afternoon at 3:30 pm. If you attend, please arrive early – the candidates are always surprised by our presence! And please pray for the new Cursillistas as they begin their 4th Day: Ziola, Austin, Tracy, Abbey, Ruth, Ian, Stacey, Tiffany, Amanda and Donna.

Our Diocesan Youth are returning from their pilgrimage in England with our Bishop. They left on Friday, June 13, and will be home tomorrow. Please keep them in your prayers as they travel. Our own Jenna Maves is part of this group, and she will report back to us on her experiences some time later this summer.

Free Introduction to Yoga class for men and women of St. George’s and St. Mark churches. Join Candi Hamill, certified instructor, in the parish hall each Wednesday afternoon at 1:30 pm for “Chair Yoga”.
Chalice Bearer & Lector Training will be offered again on Sunday, June 29 at 9:00 am. Everyone must have this training in order to be scheduled to read or bear a chalice. We will also offer a training session in the late summer or early fall. Our chalice bearers will also receive instruction on acolyting so they will be able to assist when needed. Acolyte training will be scheduled later, and/or you can arrange to meet Deacon Jody during the week. Eucharistic Visitor Training (those who take communion to our shut-ins) will be scheduled later in the summer. (PS to Lectors – Fr. Dale has placed a pronunciation Guide in the Lectern/Pulpit as an easy reference.)
