The definition of a steward is: "someone entrusted with wealth or property that does not belong to him or her." This idea runs counter to what the wider world teaches us. People say, "I earned it, so I own it." The change in our relationship to money for many comes when we realize that God owns it, and we get to use it. We are only stewards.

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.

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.

The police department has been receiving complaints regarding folks parking too close to driveways, particularly on Sundays. This makes it difficult for neighbors to back out of their driveways on Ellenwood, Cecil, and Wydown as cars are generally parked on both sides of these already narrow streets.
Please leave a minimum of two feet on either side of driveway. The police department does not want to begin issuing tickets on Sundays but if this continues to occur they will have no alternative.
Thank you for your understanding.
