Sunday School for All Ages

  1. Children and youth gather in the Chapel at 9:00 am to sing and share good news before moving to classes. Ages 3 thru 3rd grade use Godly Play, and Brian Maves prepares lessons for the others.
  2. The Rector’s Forum meets in the parish hall at 9:10 am, where Father Dale is showing slides of the development of Christianity in England. Everyone is welcome!

Stewardship – Today is our Stewardship Ingathering. Please place your pledge cards in the offering plate so that our gifts may be offered to God at the altar. If you need a pledge card, please pick one up in the narthex or ask an usher. Thank you for supporting the mission and ministry of our Lord Jesus Christ through the work of St. George’s.

Scouting for Food – The Cub Scouts will be picking up donations for our Food Pantry this Saturday, November 19, and we need lots of volunteers to help sort and pack the donations. We will be working in the Parish Hall from 10:00 am – 1:00 pm. If you can help, please join us! And please remember our pantry when you are doing your shopping. Leave any donations in the narthex on Sunday, or bring them to the church office during the week. Thank you for helping to feed the needy in our community.

Angel Tree – St. George’s Community Service Commission will again work with Lutheran Family Services to provide Christmas gifts for children who might not otherwise receive anything. The Angel Tree will be up in the narthex in a week or two, and it’s easy to help if you are able! Choose a child (or two) from the Angel Tree and take several of the gift tags. The spending limit is $50 per child. Return the gifts unwrapped (if you can include wrapping paper for later, it is appreciated!). Print the child’s name and information on a tag and attach to each gift. Place gifts with tags and paper in a Red Bag from the narthex and leave them on the last two pews on the far left of the church, or bring them to the church office. Please return Christmas gifts by December 9th. Thank you!

All baptized persons are welcome to receive Communion. We believe this is Christ’s Body and Blood, according to Christ’s very promise. One appropriately receives the consecrated wafer on your hands (right 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 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.

From Deacon Jody to my much loved church family at St. George’s: I will miss you and will continue to pray for you all. For those who wish, I would enjoy staying in touch. My new address is 161 NE Rifle Range Street, #79, Roseburg, OR 97040.

__________________________________

If you would like unction (anointing and healing prayer by the priest), please indicate this at the altar rail. Members of the Order of St. Luke are available on the south side of the church (near the votive candles) for additional prayer for those who wish. Simply move to that location after receiving communion.
