Last Sunday four babies were baptized into Christ's body, the Church. The bond which God establishes in Baptism is indissoluble. Their parents and godparents were instructed in their duties to help the new Christians grow in the knowledge and love of God, and in their responsibilities as members of his Church. We, the congregation, promised to help the children grow into the full stature of Christ. We are blessed at CSMSG to have a growing church with new young families who are committing their children and themselves to Christ. Your pledge dollars support these efforts.

If you have not yet filled out a pledge card, please do so. Every pledge makes a difference and supports our church with a vital mission and ministry seven days a week.Pledge cards are available online either at  www.csmsg.org or click here. You may also pick one up at Church or contact Laurie at Laurie@csmsg.org

Thank you for your pledge.

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.
