Safe Shelter Angel Tree
Again this year, we will support Safe Shelter with Christmas gifts for the children living there. Simply pick a tag off of the tree, buy a present, wrap it, place the gift tag on the present, and bring it to the Parish Hall. Our volunteers will deliver the presents to Safe Shelter around mid December.
Cub Scouts Meetings, Saturdays at 10:00 a.m.in the Parish Hall. Call Allen Swan for more information. There is always room for more scouts.
USHERS DESIRED. APPLY WITHIN.
We would like to have a few more Ushers for Sunday mornings. Please consider this ministry. No pay ~ but plenty of rewards in smiles, hugs, and warm greetings. All that's required is a desire to serve and a smile. Speak to Louise Richards if you are interested.
Members of the St. George's Men's Club has installed 5 benches along the Walking/Meditation Trail. Next up, some areas for butterfly gardens will be created. More information to come soon as we continue the work to create a lovely, peaceful, grace-filled area on the grounds. We intend it to be used by us and our neighbors in Windsor Forest.

We're so blessed to announce that our own Louise Richards was honored for her ongoing ministry to SAFE Shelter, a local residential facility for battered women, in this Savannah Morning News Faith In Practice feature. Louise, we are so proud of you and SO blessed to have you as a member of St. George's and as a friend.
We have many great kids in our sunday school program and not enough helpers! Teaching experience is not necessary. If you are able to help out with this important ministry, please contact Claudia Griffis.
If you desire to give vestments or church adornments in memory or thanksgiving please speak with Father Parker about what might be needed or appropriate.
If you know of someone in hospital, at home or hospice that needs a visit, prayer or even simply a phone call, please let me know. New privacy regulations sometimes make finding someone in hospital difficult. A room number is always helpful. Don’t assume someone else has told me – call anyway.
Thanks Fr P+
