 THE SPIRIT OF STEWARDSHIP
“Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.”

Matthew 5:5

Thank you to all who attended and participated with us during Connection Sunday. At our Stewardship Appreciation Luncheon and Ministry Expo, we enjoyed a delicious lunch, Gabe’s bouzouki music and a wonderful performance by our own award-winning Mythos Dancers. It was an afternoon filled with fellowship, music and dance! The Parish Council and the Stewardship Committee encourage you to participate in our parish as a committed steward for 2016 by giving your time, talent and treasure to your church and your ministries!
Life Happens in Community!
Thank you to all our faithful stewards for support of our St. George Stewardship Program!
If not you – who? If not now – when?
Time + Talent + Treasure = Stewardship
