"Blessed are you among parishes. Now get to work and share what's going on here with those who do not yet know."                      
-The Rev. Andrew Archie, January 2010 
Fr. Archie believed then as he does now that God is at work in our parish. To grow we must tell others; invite them to church; use our time, talent, and treasure to build the kingdom!

Celebrating Our History, Insuring Our Future
Planned Giving at The Church of St. Michael & St. George: Planned Giving is a term for the number of ways in which parishioners can ensure that their stewardship efforts continue after their death by making a gift to the Endowment Fund. If you care enough about your church to make a faithful annual pledge, contributing to our Endowment Fund should be a natural next step. If you are interested in more information about making a planned gift to CSMSG, please visit our website for more information, or contact the Rector's Office at 314.721.1502.
