St. George’s Annual Meeting – Sunday, January 31

We will provide lunch after the 10:30 service and then move into the church to elect Vestry members and hear reports. If you are the head of any group, commission, or ministry at St. George’s, your 2015 reports are due in the parish office by Tuesday, January 19. If you are interested in serving as a member of the Vestry or as a Deanery/Diocesan delegate, please speak to Senior Warden Frank Rogers or Junior Warden Candi Hamill.

Communicants in Good Standing who are 16 or older and have been faithful in attending worship, and in praying, working, and giving for the spread of the Kingdom of God are eligible to stand for election and to vote.

We have ten families/groups who take turns hosting coffee hour after the 10:30 service, but we would love to have more! If you might be able to take a turn making coffee and providing some simple refreshments, please speak to Sarah Surrey or Deacon Jody.

Florence Martin Scholarships – St. George’s has funds to provide several scholarships for the 2016-17 school year to our members who have a high school diploma or GED and are continuing their education. The Application and instructions are available on our website, or by contacting the church office. Deadline to return all required documents to the parish office is March 1.

All baptized persons are welcome to receive Communion. We believe this is Christ’s Body and Blood, according to Christ’s very promise, not “chip and dip”. Therefore, one appropriately receives the consecrated wafer on your hands (right hand over left) and raises it to your mouth, or receives it directly on your tongue. Then assist the chalice bearer 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 it, 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.

———————————————————————

If you would like unction (anointing with oil and prayer for healing by the priest), please indicate this at the altar rail. For those who wish, members of the Order of St. Luke are also available (near the votive candles on the south wall) to offer additional healing prayer after you have received communion.
