St. George's will host a community yard sale in the churchyard. The different ministries at St. George's are going through all of their items to see what they need to keep and what can go in the yard sale. We also invite our surrounding neighborhood neighbors to rent a table and sell their items.

Volunteer: We need your help. Gayle Shuford has agreed to help along with our part time sexton Steven. If you would like to help please contact the Rev. Jenkins at 202-985-9267 or email


St. George's Oral History Project

Off to a Great Start!


Our Oral History Project took a leap forward last week. We had a professional videographer in for two days where we were able to interview 12 parishioners. We worked for two full days to capture those interviews. All of them have been transcribed. Everyone who interviewed did a great job and availed themselves to answer all questions! The interviewers have been fabulous in preparing for the interviews. We still have a lot of work ahead of us, but this is a work of love by everyone involved. We plan to schedule a couple of more days of professional recordings. This project is more than any of us could have imagined it to be. How wonderful to be able to preserve our amazing history contributing to our legacy. Thank you!

Outreach: Serving the Community



Kwanzaa Kitchen: Janis has been able to come up with a unique way in which we will continue to feed the hungry in this important ministry. It involves fewer than 6 people and we will pack the food to go and place it outside on tables for people to take their breakfast with them. We will continue this way until we are able to gather groups together again.
