THE BANNER
The Nicaragua Wine Pull will be held on Sunday, July 10 after the 10 AM service. 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, please drop off a bottle of wine (valued at $25 or higher) at church before July 5.

Congratulations to the Verger and Acolytes who received their silver and gold crosses last Sunday!  Our vergers support all who participate in worship and ensure that the liturgy runs smoothly. Our acolytes attend several duties including candle lighting, holding the Gospel book, and carrying the torches. We are grateful for their service to our Church.

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.orgThank you for your pledge!

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.

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.
THIS SUNDAY, June 26

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.
