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.

Friends Life Treat Truck
The Friends Life Treat Truck is a new social enterprise from Friends Life Community, which helps young adults with developmental disabilities gain social and work skills. The Treat Truck started as a self-sustaining way to get the “friends” into the Nashville area both to work on their skills and to educate the community about people with developmental disabilities.
Through the SGEM partnership, St. George’s will assist Friends Life with an upgrade for the treat truck. Instead of a pull-behind trailer, the friends will work with a food truck. Friends Life will also have new resources to update the behind-the-scenes processes that support their meaningful work.

My Bag My Story
My Bag My Story (MBMS) was founded in 2019 out of a passion to help foster children. This non-profit organization sells high-quality backpacks, duffel bags, and pouches. For bag sold, an identical one is donated to a child in foster care. This gift then takes the place of the trash bag most foster care children use to transport their belongings from one foster home to another.
Through our partnership, My Bag My Story will implement a new strategic plan, hire administrative support, and address supply chain shortages with their fabric supplier. Together these benefits will allow their ministry to grow and benefit even more children in the future.
