Women's Bible Study:     
9 AM, Armstrong Room  
On January 4, Molly Schilling will lead a discussion of "The Epiphany." This Bible Study meets each Monday from 9-9:45 AM in the Armstrong Room. For more information, contact Laurie Brown at Laurie@csmsg.org

Beginning January 11, Kyle Schenkewitz, our Youth Minister, will begin a study of "The Drama of Scripture." We will discuss how the biblical narrative unfolds into six "acts"- from the establishment of God's kingdom to the "return of the King." This study is for you if you have ever wondered how the Bible hangs together or how to make sense of it all. Scripture is more than a set of separate books; it's a compelling drama that unfolds from beginning to end. Learn how God's story continues in our lives here and now and how to discover our meaning and place in it. This study will be great for seasoned Christians looking for a new way to read the Bible, as well as for new believers who want to understand the Scriptures. Join us as we begin this new study on January 11. 

Wednesday, January 13
Wonderful Wednesdays
Upcoming Father Blake's Classes:
Epiphany: An Introduction to the Episcopal Church
Where did we come from? Who were our "founding fathers" as a church? How did we get from there to where we are today? What role does St. Michael & St. George have to play in it all? Join us Wednesdays in Epiphany starting January 13 for a four-week introduction to the Episcopal Church.

Lent: Christian Prayer in the Anglican Tradition
Christian Prayer is an immensely rich topic, and our inheritance as Anglicans is especially vibrant. Join us on Wednesdays in Lent (starting February 17) as we discuss this heritage, along with specific ways each of us can approach God by prayer in our lives today. Topics will include The Book of Common Prayer, sacred music, the Liturgy, and private devotion.
