Word of the Week

PENTECOST

“The Fiftieth Day”

Christians have come to understand the meaning of Pentecost in terms of the gift of the Spirit. The Pentecost event was the fulfillment of a promise which Jesus gave concerning the return of the Holy Spirit. In the Christian tradition, Pentecost is now the seventh Sunday after Easter. It emphasizes that the church is understood as the body of Christ which is drawn together and given life by the Holy Spirit. The Day of Pentecost is one of the seven principal feasts of the church year in the Episcopal Church. The liturgical color for the feast is red and is worn on Pentecost Sunday to symbolize the flames that descended upon the Church at the Day of Pentecost.

COFFEE AND CONVERSATION

9:00 AM in the St. Mark’s Room/Zoom

This Sunday 5/19/24, C & C Class will begin reading and “conversing about” Chapter 3, “Night Moves by Nicodemus,” in Jamie Clark-Soles’ book Reading John for Dear Life: A Spiritual Walk with the Fourth Gospel. Nicodemus, a “good” Pharisee, appears three places in the Gospel of John, but nowhere else in the Bible. We look forward to having you join us, in person or by Zoom, for a lively discussion of what we read in class. There is a classroom set of books in case you do not have one.

Chain Of Love – Thank You

By | Charitable Giving | No Comments

 

Thank you for all your amazing support for Chain of Love 2024! We raised over $27,500 to support our sister Church and School, St. Benoit, in Mombin Crochu, Haiti! Every dollar equaled a domino in our huge domino chain that we toppled on Monday. It was truly a sight to see! We are so proud of Team Domino and everyone who contributed from the School and Church to make this happen for the 19th year. When our community comes together with love, we are LIMITLESS in how we can make a difference!

HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATE BIBLE SCRIPTURES

By | Uncategorized | 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 give each high school graduate a personalized Bible with scripture blessings from our parishioners highlighted throughout each bible.

If you have one or more favorite scriptures you want to share and have highlighted in the graduates’ Bibles, email your list to Happy Wilson at by noon on Tuesday, April 30th.

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