New Building Renovation Design

The Parish Council and Building Committee are pleased to share the updated sketches for our renovation and expansion project.

We are grateful for our generous donors. We are now offering everyone the opportunity to contribute a dedicated donation. If you and your family (or several) families are moved to dedicate a portion of this project in honor or memory of a loved one, please click here for the details.

Your prayers and support are much appreciated.



STEWARDSHIP

In the bulletin last month we printed the names of those who have returned their 2017 pledge cards. We are so grateful to all of our donors. By returning your pledge card the Parish Council is able to plan for the coming year and can accurately track income on our Power Church software system.

Since last week, more cards have been returned. As of Friday, 89 stewards have made pledges to Saint George Church for $70,780. That is an average of $799 per person. Extra cards are in the narthex, or you may arrange your annual gift online.
