Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ,

 

Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus!  I thank God through Jesus Christ for all of you, because your faith is proclaimed throughout the world. For God, whom I serve with my spirit by announcing the gospel of his Son, is my witness that without ceasing I remember you always in my prayers.  At St. George we long to see you so that we may share with you some spiritual gift so that you may be strengthened— or rather so that we may be mutually encouraged by each other’s faith!

Welcome to St. George - a place where you are loved and where everyone is welcome!  Jesus has set the guiding principles of love for God and love for each other and this community is committed to this project of love.

We hope that you will join us on Sunday and during all of our many activities!  If you have any thoughts or questions, please contact us and we'll do all in our power to be helpful.

Yours in Christ,

 

Rev. Jon, Rector

Rev. Jon's Message
February 25, 2024

Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ,

Blessings and peace to each of you in the name of our beloved Savior.  I hope that you and your family are enjoying a thoughtful and spirt-filled Lent. 

Many thanks to all the folks who helped with our recent Ash Wednesday service, our annual BBQ, and our food pantry.  These and our many other activities form the core of God’s self expression in our lives.

Always remember you are loved!

Rev. Jon+

 

  Why we quiet the alleluias and tone down the colors during Lent

Lent is a time of penitence - a time when we recall our sinful nature as humans and think of ways we can   behave that are more in keeping with God's will for us.  This is not intended to be maudlin or depressing, we are being asked to be  honest.  We don't always do what we should, we often do things we should not - so seven weeks a year we think and pray about these tendencies.  This is a season to admit we are not angels, so that when Easter arrives, we are ready in our hearts to watch Jesus endure the passion.

Blessings,  

Jon+

The Red Doors

When you enter the sanctuary at St. George to worship or pray, you will pass through our bright red doors. Painting church doors red is a widespread tradition in Episcopal churches. The red doors of an Episcopal church have traditionally led the way to holy ground where anyone who enters is safe from both physical and spiritual harm.

 

We proclaim with our red doors that our church is a haven for emotional and spiritual healing, and is a place of refuge and safety, forgiveness and reconciliation -- in other words, red doors invite the passers-by into a space filled with the Holy Spirit.

 

The color red also evokes the blood of Jesus Christ, which protects the wayfaring soul from spiritual harm.

 

Jesus Christ is our refuge. The red doors at St. George remind us that our parish community too must be a refuge for all those who enter through them. In this holy place, there will be no outcasts. Our doors are open to all!

 

Below are descriptions of two exciting groups at St. George. These groups are usually held in our parish hall on certain Mondays. If you are interested, please call the church office for information at 904-251-9272 or send an email to  info.stgeorgechurch@gmail.com

What is Care Givers Group?

 

If you are caring for a loved one, you are not alone, if you find yourself overwhelmed, frustrated, sad, and on and on.

The caregivers support group meets to express these feelings among others who share the same situations.

Sometimes, only others who share the same experiences can truly understand and offer relief through honest discussion and practical solutions.

Circle of Sisters image.jpg
What is the Circle of Sisters Group?

The Circle of Sisters is a group of women who come together to check in with each other and offer a listening ear and a willing hand to anyone in need of support.

 

We also focus on helping make this a better place through volunteering, learning and giving. Some of our most recent events included volunteering at FEEDING NE FLORIDA, touring and donating to RETHREADED and taking the St. Johns Riverkeeper's tour on the river taxi while learning about our precious resource, water.
