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.

This brief Service of Remembrance is for anyone who has experienced grief or loss and wishes to remember a friend or loved one.
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 - look for instructions in your worship bulletin. Questions? Contact Brad Thomason, Coordinator | 615-604-3109 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
Intercessory Prayer Meeting
Thursdays, 5:30 - 6:30pm in the Chapel | Led by Martin Odidi, we share a time of spirit-filled worship through praise and music, uplifting teaching, and prayers—including prayers for 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 then blessed by a priest when finished. Beginners are welcome! Questions? Contact Mary Jackson, Coordinator | 615-330-4153 or email@example.com.
We want to know you and care for you through these important ministries. Each ministry below exists to provide support for our church family in times of need. And each ministry exists thanks to abundant volunteer support from church members. The groups below would be delighted to have new volunteers in their midst, and they would be equally delighted to be able to serve you through their area of ministry.
