The United Thank Offering (UTO) was begun by the women of the Episcopal Church over 125 years ago. It is about remembering on a daily/weekly basis what we are thankful for in our own lives – whether that is a sunny day, a celebration, or any other thing that reminds us to thank God for the pleasures and treasures of our lives.
Keep your blue box/envelope close by, and drop in an offering as you thank God for a daily blessing. Please try to involve your family or friends in this. The offerings will be collected on Sunday, May 14 at all services. Please, if possible, turn your cash into a check to St. George’s Episcopal Church, with UTO on the memo line. Cash thanksgiving is always acceptable, especially from children.
The offerings are used to fund long term projects in the US and around the world that help churches serve their communities, especially families, children, and those with basic needs. A recent grant given to Charis Community in Virginia will help to fund a rural retreat for residents to learn farming and life skills.
Make your offerings in remembrance of the many blessings you have received.
