Volunteer

The heartbeat of the Christian life is each person’s relationship with God – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. At St. George’s, we grow in our individual relationship with the Lord through the spiritual disciplines, including service.

Afghan Refugee Support

Date Change: The Interest Meeting has been moved to Wednesday, January 19, at 6:00pm in Dandridge Hall

St. George’s is eager to help these new neighbors settle into their new lives here, so we are exploring the possibility of adopting an Afghan refugee family. If you are interested in being involved – at any commitment level – you are invited to attend an interest meeting where a representative from Nashville International Center for Empowerment (NICE) will provide us with information on adopting a family. Opportunities for involvement will range from core team members to one-time volunteer opportunities and donations. If you are unable to attend this meeting but are interested in receiving information, please contact Agatha Nolen, Director of Outreach, at agatha.nolen@stgeorgesnashville.org or 615-385-2150.
