Welcome to St. George's!
Welcome to St. George's web site. We are glad you are visiting our site and hope you will come worship at our church. St. George's is a warm, energetic community where all are welcomed. Our motto 'shape a circle ever wider and a people ever free' is a good reflection of who we are, as is the banner outside of our church that says 'Join us around a table where all are welcome.'
Worship services of Holy Communion (also called the Mass, Holy Eucharist, or the Lord's Supper) are at 8 and 10 a.m. on Sunday mornings. Come and join us!

Case Statement Results of Dreamcatcher Sessions
We have made it our goal to raise $250,000 over the next four years to be put towards buildings and grounds, outreach, and spiritual development at St. Georges. If you would like to help us reach our goal, please contact our office or talk to any of our members.
As of January 2013 we have pledged $147,000 of our $250,000 goal. Thank you to everyone who has pledged already! If you have not made a pledge towards Ensuring St. Georges Future and would like to, please talk with Connie or a member of Vestry.

Names for offerings may also ben submitted to the office by E-mail or regular mail.
