We have much to be Thankful for here at CSMSG. We have over 20 ministries helping those within our church walls and beyond. We are caring Christians who use our gifts to help others. Stewardship begins in our hearts. If we give our hearts and gifts to Jesus Christ, he will fill them with a greater abundance of love than we can ask or imagine. 

Every pledge made to CSMSG helps the church continue to do the work God has given us to do here. For those who have not yet made a pledge, pledge cards are available online HERE at church or contact laurie@csmsg.org.
Thank you for your pledge.

Advent Lessons and Carols and Fellowship
A wonderful and meaningful way to usher in the season of Advent is through the service of Advent Lessons and Carols. This service, originally composed by The Very Reverend Eric Milner-White for use at King's College Chapel, Cambridge, proclaims in word and song the promise of God to redeem the world through the Advent of His Son. The metaphoric procession through the liturgy-from darkness into light-is intended to prepare the worshipper for the coming of the true Light, Jesus Christ. Please plan to join us for this very special liturgy to begin the new liturgical year. A festive parish reception follows in the Great Hall. Please let Laurie know if you are able to bring an appetizer to share at Laurie@csmsg.org. Complimentary child care will be available in the nursery by reservation.
