Special Donations for Christmas/Year End As you plan your Christmas or year end giving, please remember St. George’s. Although regular pledges make up roughly 75% of our income, we also count on special donations around major feast days like Christmas and Easter. If you feel moved to make a special donation before the end of the year, please let us know it's for Christmas. If you send a check to our PO Box, please write “Christmas” in the memo line. If you send a contribution via Zelle, please put "Christmas" in the comment box. If you use our online donation page, enter your donation amount in the box next to "Special Holy Day Donation" and write "Christmas" in the text box. Thank you!
Blue Christmas Service on December 22, 2020 Sometimes called the “longest night service” because it takes place near the time of the Winter Solstice, a blue Christmas service acknowledges the loss and pain that we experience, especially at a time when our culture is imposing an over-amped sense of joviality. We gather to reflect on our loss and to offer prayers of comfort and healing with the sure expectation that the coming of Christ into our lives inspires the truest experience of Christmas joy. At St. George’s, we will gather this year on Zoom at 7:00 pm on Tuesday, December 22. Here is the link or call in by phone at (301) 715 8592 and when prompted enter the Meeting ID number: 940 4461 9967

And please contact the office with the names of the persons you wish to remember, either by note, email at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 301-262-3285. To be included in the Christmas bulletin, names must be submitted by Sunday, December 20.
