Lent 2017 at St. Georges


Lent

We’ll officially kick off our Lenten Food Drive, benefiting Collierville Food Pantry. Sarah Bettendorf will again be chairing our efforts this year. Watch for weekly shopping lists in Happenings and the TIP, as we stock the shelves of the Food Pantry for our neighbors who rely on this resource. If you would like to deliver food to the Food Pantry on a Thursday during Lent – and see this ministry in action – please contact Sarah ( This email address is being protected from spambots.

Maundy Thursday will be our last day to deliver food to Collierville Food Pantry.

During Lent, Mother Dorothy will lead a book study on Sunday evenings, March 5, 12, 19, 26, at 6:30 p.m. in the Library. We will read Walter Brueggemann’s Into Your Hand: Confronting Good Friday, and study Brueggemann’s seven sermons on Jesus’ last words.

Also, at our adult Forum on Sundays at 9:30 a.m. we'll study Mathew's Gospel "From the scandalous women to the Great Commission."
