Join us in Sydnor Hall on Thursday, June 30 at 6:30 p.m. for American Denial, a documentary exploring the work of Swedish Nobel Laureate Gunnar Myrdal as he researched Jim Crow laws in the American South in the late 1930s. The film explores how denial, cognitive dissonance, and implicit bias persist and shape all of our lives. Co-sponsored by Shiloh Baptist Church (Old Site). Eat before you come, or bring your supper and something to drink with you. The nursery will be open for little ones, and pre-K and up can enjoy a fun flick upstairs in McGuire Hall. Save the date for movie nights on July 28 and August 25 as well. Call the church office at 540-373-4133 for more information.
We’re continuing the discussion on the death penalty issue on June 22 at 6:30 p.m. in Faulkner Hall. What is our response as Christians? This event is open to anyone who is interested. Contact Debbie Simpson at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
“Tell me, what is it you plan to do
with your one wild and precious life?”
—Mary Oliver, From “The Summer Day”
If you are away from St. George’s for an extended period of time this summer, you may want to consider our electronic option for your church giving. We can easily draft your pledge donation for any length of time. All we need is a form completed and a voided check so we can set it up. Two examples follow:
- Parishioner A who gives monthly will be away for two weeks in June in the Key West area on business and then three weeks on a European vacation. That’s most of June and July. We can easily set up June and July church pledge donations to be done electronically and then “A” can resume his normal schedule in August.
- Parishioner B who gives weekly will be away moving children in the middle of June and then again in the 3rd week in July be at the beach. Likewise we can set up electronic transfers for those specific weeks and she can cover the other weeks with her normal church donations.
Got the picture ? You tell us when you will be away, what specific periods to cover electronically, the amounts and then provide your checking information. It’s one way to have more time in preparing for a busy summer and at the same time remember St. George’s.
If this fits your upcoming summer, please give Ben a call at 540-373-4133 or email email@example.com. Have a great summer!
