Aelfric’s Readers, St. George’s book club, chose its name from Aelfric the Grammarian who lived in the first half of the 11th century. This is a casual book club for people who love to read! In 2021, we are still reading and connecting online.

Bible Reading Plan
Our Bible Reading Plan organizes the lectionary into a pattern of daily readings. By following along with the church calendar, each week we learn about 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.
Reading Schedule: May - June 2021
CLC Men's Groups
Most men have many acquaintances but few trusted friends. Along with the truth from scripture, the potential for meaningful relationships with other men is perhaps the most needed and appreciated aspect of the Christian Leadership Concepts (CLC) process. CLC involves small groups of men who desire to grow in their faith, their awareness of God’s work in their lives, and their places of service within the body of Christ.

Daughters of the King
St. Francis Chapter
Daughters of the King practice daily intercessory prayers and offer service to God thereby sharing the sufferings of the world. Not perfect in practice, we try as women of courage. We serve everywhere from Our Little Roses in Honduras to St. Luke’s (Daughters of the King founded St. Luke’s in 1913), Magdalene House, Room at the Inn, founding Inreach, to the St. George’s Choir, and more.
Daughters of the King is open to all women of St. George's who want to deepen their commitment to Christ as they balance their prayer and spiritual life with action in the church community.
You can learn more about the Daughters of the King here.

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.
