BACKPACKS AND SCHOOL SUPPLY DRIVE

By | Charitable Giving | No Comments

July and the first part of August is Saint George’s opportunity to help provide backpacks and school supplies for children who will not have these items for the beginning of school.

One of the main elementary schools to benefit from this is Larkspur Elementary. Larkspur, located about a mile from St. George, is a Title One school meaning that many students are at, or below, the poverty line. St. George has partnered with Larkspur for many years providing outreach wherever we can. This is our first opportunity for this year.

They say that an average backpack full of supplies can be about $80 this year. Last year we handed out about 900 backpacks, in coordination with eight other area churches, so the cost is significant. If you feel called to help, please donate thru our online giving platform and mark for backpacks, or give a check made out to St George with backpacks on the memo line.

Thanks so much for helping these children get a good start for this school year.

If you have questions, contact Julabeth Carden, kittylady46@yahoo.com or 210-365-6377.

If you would are interested in participating, please send an email to Andy Nodine at nodinewajr@gmail.com. He will then provide you with details on the location for the gathering.

High School Graduate Bible Scriptures

By | Community, Youth | No Comments

St. George Episcopal Church would like to present a special gift to each of our high school graduates to mark this momentous milestone in their lives, and we need your help. We will be giving each high school graduate a personalized Bible with scripture blessings from our parishioners highlighted throughout each of their Bibles.

If you have one or more favorite scriptures that you would like to share and have highlighted in the graduates’ Bibles, simply email your list to Happy Wilson at hwilson@saintgeorgechurch.org by noon on Wednesday, May 4th.

It is our hope that these Bibles will be a treasured source of guidance and inspiration for our graduates as they begin this new journey in their lives. We thank you for your contributions!
