Featured Offerings

Essentials: The Book of Genesis

Coming January 2021

In this age of social distancing let’s be intentional in engaging with our church family. Join us in 2021 as we continue our small group Bible studies by diving into the book of Genesis. These 10-week small group experiences are designed to draw you into one of the essential elements of our Christian faith—moving through the Bible in community with your fellow parishioners.

Each session will include a short video presented by St. George’s clergy and discussion questions to prompt conversation about the important ways that this rich text informs our lives today. We offer both virtual and in-person gatherings at various times to accommodate all walks of life.

Prayer Partnership

We believe every child needs a team of adults to intentionally invest in their lives through prayer! Our hope is that this partnership will build up the next generation of Christians by investing in intergenerational relationships through the practice of prayer. Particularly in a time when we have to remain distanced from our church community, our vision is that this will enrich and build up the lives of our children, youth, and adults as we invest in a culture of prayer, mentorship, and intergenerational relationships.

Finding Ourselves in the Bible’s Story of God’s Mission

Click here to watch previous classes.

Led by the Rev. Dr. R. Leigh Spruill and members of our clergy

The purpose of this adult Sunday School course is to help us learn how to read the Bible in such a way that we find ourselves inside the essential story of God’s mission to redeem the world. Once this central thread to Scripture is clearly visible to us, Christians are better able to discern and claim our identity and purpose as God’s ambassadors sent into the world to bless. This survey course will take us from the call of Abraham at the beginning of the Old Testament to the final vision of God’s mission to the world in the Book of Revelation. While Fr. Leigh will serve as lead teacher and course moderator, the class format will be a team-teaching approach with the other clergy of the parish.

Bible Reading Plan

Our Bible Reading Plan organizes the lectionary into a pattern of daily readings. By following along with the church calendar, each of these readings points to some aspect of Christ's life, death, and resurrection. Our plan provides a way for parishioners to deepen their knowledge of the Bible, prepare for Sunday worship, and become more familiar with the enduring themes of the church calendar.

Hear weekly insights from our clergy here.

Reading Schedule:   Nov - Dec 2020

Prayer Shawl Ministry

The Prayer Shawl Ministry is a group of experienced and novice knitters and crocheters who make shawls for those experiencing any kind of hardship.

Prayer shawls are given to those who would benefit from a spiritual “hug.” Prayers are said as they are being made, and finished shawls are blessed by a priest. Feedback from recipients has been very rewarding.
