LENTEN READING
THIS SUNDAY, January 10

All liturgies and a full length notice may be downloaded from our website, csmsg.org. Go to service leaflets on "This Sunday"  to view ordownload the pdf files for the liturgy and notices. A condensed printed version of the Sunday leaflet and notices will be available at all services. 

This Sunday the World Service Mission-Nicaragua
is in our Ministry Spotlight.
The Nicaragua effort seeks to support the work of missionaries in building and running the Carolina Sirker School in the Nejapa district of Managua. We bring the good news of Christ's love, desperately needed medical services, and basic education supplies to the poor of Nicaragua. During the year, we raise funds and collect clothing, supplies, and medications to carry in our "second suitcases" on our summer trip. While in Managua, there is work needed on construction at the school, the distribution of items at local hospitals, and work with children in the schools. We also solicit sponsorships for the education of children at the school who would otherwise be denied a chance to improve their circumstances. Please stop by to see Jennifer McGrath in the Great Hall to learn more or contact her at jenmcgrath123@aol.com.

Epiphany Family Night: Join us for a Mexican dinner, craft, the Crowning of the Three Kings, and a special service Sunday, at 5 PM. The cost is $4 per person or $15 per family. Email Jane Fisher to make your reservations at jfisher@csmsg.org

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 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.
