June 29, 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.

Summer Forum – Parishioner Dee Zopp continues her study of “Bad Girls of the Bible”.  Today we will learn about Tamar, and next week it’s Delilah!  Everyone is welcome to join us in the Parish Hall at 9:10 am for this fun and relaxed Bible study.

Chalice Bearer & Lector Training is today 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.)

We are grateful to Elaine Lorentzen, who has played the organ for us while Nancy is on vacation. Thank you, Elaine!
