Celebrating Our History, Insuring Our Future
Planned Giving at CSMSG: 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.

Happy Father's Day! After the 10 AM service, enjoy Popsicles for Pops on the Playground! (If it rains, it will be inside).

Printed Directory: For those of you who would like a printed version of our Directory, they will be available at church at the Ellenwood door or please let Laurie know at  Laurie@csmsg.org or call 314.721.1502. Another wonderful feature of our online Directory is the ability to update your information. 

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.

The Nicaragua Mission is holding a Wine Pull. Dozens of donated bottles of very good wines will be available for $25. You won't know if you are getting a $25 bottle of wine or a $50 bottle of wine until after you purchase it! All wines will be boxed and on display in the Great Hall so you can take your best guess at which one is the finest! If you would like to donate a bottle of wine for this fundraiser that supports the trip to Nicaragua in late July, please drop off a bottle of wine (valued at $25 or higher) at church before July 5. For more information, contact Jennifer McGrath at 636.778.1256 or jenmcgrath123@gmail.com.
