Hello St George's!

Let's take a moment to think about the prophet Elijah.

There's a time in his life when he feels completely down and alone, and even asks God to take his life. He's completely broken. And in the midst of this turmoil, God doesn't  feed him an easy pep talk and doesn't shame him for being sad. He simply let him have a nap, and then gave him a snack. And then they talked it all out. 

My friends, I want to encourage you to take naps, eat snacks, and talk to God. I want to help you do that. 

Join us for prayer. We pray online regularly, Mon-Thurs, at 8am. Too early? Let me know and we can work something out. But let's make time to talk it out with God together. I also want to encourage you to join us in Thy Kingdom Come prayer wave. More on that below. 

Need a snack? You love hot foods? Let me make you a Nashville hot chicken sandwich. If you'd like me to fry you up a batch, let me know! I'd love to set a date and drop off a snack for you and yours.

Not feeling hot chicken? No worries, I'd love to do a porch visit, to connect and to pray with you if you're up for it. Just let me know.

That's all for now. I'm thinking about you and praying for you. We're here for you. So keep safe and sanitized, and see you on Sunday!

In Christ, 

Brit adds:

Hi Jr. Church Parents!

I hope that you are all enjoying our Children’s Time on Sunday mornings.

I wanted to let you know about a great show that we have been watching with Eve called Superbook: a show about two kids, Joy and Chris, and their Robot Gizmo, who go back in time and participate in Biblical stories.

The kids learn about the Bible and about who God is through these experiences. The first 2 seasons are free on YouTube, you can watch the first episode here:

Link to Superbook!

I encourage you to check it out and let me know what you think! 

I'll also be following up with praying together. For now, check out this link!

See you virtually,

When we pray we are partnering with God to see God's Kingdom Come and God's will be done across our town, nation, and world.

We may not be able to meet in person at this time, but we can still seek God together. Our prayers make a difference.

So let's light up the world in prayer, May 21-31! I encourage you to sign up and make a pledge to pray during these dates, to join us online for prayer as we pray for God's Kingdom Come

Light up the World - sign up online to have your light show up online! 

Prayer Journal - read some scripture, pray, and serve our world. 

Visit our church website to stay updated on how we will be participating in this worldwide wave of prayer. 
How can I have faith?

This week we are looking at the evidence for believing in Christianity. We will be reflecting on the perspective of a person who has decided to believe the claims of Christianity. How can that person make sure they have made the right decision?

Join us online this Tuesday at at 7:30pm. There's no pressure, no follow up, no charge. Just an evening to share your thoughts and feelings of spirituality and faith without judgement, as we explore the Christian faith.

Missed last week? Here are links to last week's talk and discussion guide.

Online Giving

In a small church such as our, much of our operating budget comes from the weekly giving of our members and regular attenders. Your giving counts and is greatly appreciated. Please consider continuing to give to the work of God at St. George's by giving online.
