We love to care for our parishioners at home, in the hospital, or in a rehab facility. Clergy and volunteers visit church members in need of prayer, anointing, Eucharist, or just a personal visit.
St. George’s clergy are available to speak with you personally to provide pastoral support and encouragement. Please contact any of our clergy directly to schedule an appointment. Our clergy are also able to recommend professional counselors as needed.
Navigating Grief & Loss
We periodically offer a 5-week class led in partnership with therapists from Insight Counseling Centers. for all who are experiencing grief and loss.
Prayer & Healing
God delights to bring healing into all parts of our lives – physical, emotional, relational, and spiritual. Week after week as we pray together, God comes with healing, freedom, joy, and peace. Week after week, God is healing people we love here at St. George’s.
Sunday Healing Prayers
Those who attend services at 8:45, 9:00, and 11:00am on Sunday morning are invited to receive personal prayers for healing after receiving communion. Each Sunday, prayer ministers will be waiting to pray with you. Questions? Contact Brad Thomason, Coordinator | 615-604-3109 or email@example.com.
Wednesday Healing Service
If you desire prayers for yourself or others, we invite you to our Healing Service every Wednesday at 10:00am in the Chapel. In addition to readings and Eucharist, a priest and a lay person will be present to pray with you for any need including physical, mental, or emotional healing.
Prayer Shawl Ministry
This group of experienced and novice knitters and crocheters meet the first Saturday of each month from 10:00am to 1:00pm in the Library. Prayer shawls are given to those who would benefit from a spiritual "hug." Prayers are said as the shawls are being made and blessed by a priest when finished. If you would like to be a part of this ministry but do not know how to knit or crochet, we will be happy to teach you. Questions? Contact Mary Jackson, Coordinator | 615-330-4153 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
