Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice. Let your gentleness be known to everyone. The Lord is near. Do not worry about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. (Phil 4:4-7)


Thanksgiving is at the heart of Christian life. The principal act of Christian worship is an act of thanksgiving for what God has done for us in Jesus, which we offer not only for ourselves but for the world.


For our traditional holiday of Thanksgiving -- we gather intentionally and share our gratitude for the gifts from God and the gifts of the relationships that bind us together around our table and our community of friends and supporters.


This year is a year in which most of us are not with our families - we are reimagining our Traditional Thanksgiving. No matter how you are celebrating -- know that I give thanks to each of you. You welcomed me with open arms last March - for that I give you thanks. I give thanks for your ministries. I give thanks for your generosity. We are walking through this clergy transition time together in intentional discernment. Thank you for all that you are doing in this and thank you for your support.


My prayer this Thanksgiving even in this COVID-19 time - is that it will be a time that deepens your bond with those you love with those whom you worship, and most importantly with God, the giver and the gift. As you remember Thanksgivings past and give thank this year, remember the God who is the source of all.


St. George's Episcopal Church Women take up a collection twice a year to support the United Thank Offering (UTO), a ministry of The Episcopal Church for the mission of the whole church. Our fall collection is timed with the holiday of Thanksgiving as a reflection of our personal daily spiritual discipline of gratitude. ECW encourages St. George parishioners to notice the good things that happen each day, give thanks to God for those blessings and make an offering for each blessing to UTO. Please join us and make a donation to the parish office, payable to ECW with UTO on the memo line. Thank you for your generosity and have a blessed Thanksgiving!

The Daily Office of Evening Prayer

Monday - Thursday Each Week

5:30 p.m.


Join St. George's for the Daily Office of Evening Prayer held Monday through Thursday at 5:30.


The Daily Office is an ancient practice that uses daily prayers to mark the times of the day. For Anglicans, this generally comes in the form of the two main offices of Daily Morning Prayer and Daily Evening Prayer.


The Purpose of the Daily Office: The sanctification of time – a reminder that all time is sacred since all time belongs to God and the sanctification of the individual – a way to draw a person closer to God.


Follow along with Evening Prayer in the Book of Common Prayer (p. 61-73)

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.
