We are now midway through 2016, yet we do not have the financial support to continue to the end of the year. We have $1,713,150 pledged for 2016. We need $1,930,000 to carry out what we have planned for the year. Your help is needed! Please take a moment to read the letter sent out this week regarding Giving Opportunities here at The Church of St. Michael & St. George. Together we can fully fund these opportunities, so that CSMSG can continue to be a beacon for those who wish to know Jesus! Contact Laurie Brown at Laurie@csmsg.org.

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.

CS Summer Schedule: Preschool-3rd Grade children meet downstairs in the Pre-Primary Room, for a lectionary-based activity, and they will join their parents in the Church for communion throughout the summer.

Nicaragua Auction Tickets are available on Sunday! This fun evening benefits our World Service Mission and is on Sunday, June 12, at Windows on Washington.
