Are You Called to Serve?
Acolytes: Saint George’s Parish is seeking new acolytes! This is
a great opportunity for children and adults to give back to the church by assisting at the Eucharists. On Sunday, August 13, a meeting and training session has been scheduled. For additional information or to volunteer, please call or email Nathan Scott at 618-477-3050, email@example.com.
Sunday School Teachers: Do you love telling stories? Do you enjoy watching children grow in their faith? Do you love to laugh? If your answer yes to any of these questions, then you might enjoy being a part of our awesome Sunday School. More teachers are needed to provide loving and nurturing instruction, implementing the Godly Play curriculum. Godly Play makes teaching easy with very little planning. To learn more, please contact St. George’s Sunday School Coordinator Mae Scott at 618-477-3046 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
