In the Revelation of John, there is a vision of Jesus speaking to the churches, and he says, "I know your works. Look, I have set before you an open door, which no one is able to shut," (Revelation 3:8a). The doors of The Church of St. Michael & St. George are open every day of the year. The open door is a symbol of our mission; it encourages many to come inside to discover God's presence, but it also encourages us when we leave the building to take our faith beyond the confines of our worship and discover Jesus in the world outside.

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.

PARKING REMINDER
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.
