SUNDAY SCHOOL FOR ALL AGES

Children and youth gather in the Chapel at 9:00 am to sing and share good news before moving to classes. Ages 3 – 5th grade use Godly Play, and our teens’ lessons are prepared by Brian Maves.

The Rector’s Forum meets in the parish hall at 9:10.  Father Dale is teaching a verse by verse study of the earliest of the fours Gospels, the Gospel of Mark.  Bring your Bibles!

The Lambeth Bible Study, a meditative approach to scripture, is a second option for adults.  This group meets in the conference room.

St. George’s is collecting items for Bethany Place, the largest non-profit, community based AIDS Service Organization in the Metro East, providing clients with the support they need to maintain the highest possible quality of life while teaching prevention through its education and outreach programs.  They are in need of personal grooming and hygiene items for both men and women. Please bring your donations in the narthex or the parish office through the end of the month.  Thank you.

Bishop Michael Curry will be installed as our 27th Presiding Bishop on Sunday, November 1, at 12:00 noon (EST) at the Washington National Cathedral.  Bishop Curry will preach at the service, which will include Anglican, ecumenical, and interreligious guests as well as Episcopal bishops, General Convention deputies, Executive Council members, and other leaders.  You can watch the video afterwards at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X5YZtmFkNyU. Please pray for Bishop Curry and the Episcopal Church!

The Feast of All Saints is Sunday, November 1st. From very early times, the word “saint” was applied primarily to persons of heroic sanctity, whose deeds were recalled with gratitude by later generations. Beginning in the tenth century, it became customary to set aside another day—as a sort of extension of All Saints, to remember the faithful who, though no less members of the company of the redeemed, are unknown in the wider fellowship of the Church. It was also a day for particular remembrance of family members and friends.  St. George’s will observe All the Faithful Departed at the Wednesday morning chapel service on November 4th.  If you would like to add the name of a deceased friend or family member to the prayer list for that day, please contact the parish office.

St. George’s will give thanks to God for our many blessings on Thanksgiving Day, November 26th, with a service on Holy Eucharist in the Chapel at 10:00 am.  How appropriate!

How to receive Communion – We believe this is Christ’s Body and Blood. Receive the consecrated wafer in your hands and raise it to your mouth, or receive it directly on your tongue. (A gluten-free host is available – let us know if you need this option.) Please assist in guiding the Chalice to your lips. If for personal reasons you wish to receive by “intinction”, leave the host on your palm and the Chalice Bearer will pick it up, intinct and place it on your tongue. Do not intinct yourself – this prevents fingers touching the wine. If you do not wish to receive the chalice, please indicate this by crossing your arms over your chest.  All baptized persons are welcome to receive Communion.
