At St. George’s on-the-Hill there are many opportunities for you to serve.
“Hands joined together in prayer, outreach, compassion, and justice.”
Spring through Autumn
The gardens of St. George’s are one of the ways we take care of the earth God gave us, while beautifying our church and our community. All are welcome to participate from Spring through Autumn.

Shawls have been made throughout the centuries; they wrap, enfold, comfort, cover, give solace, hold in a hug, shelter, and beautify. The Prayer Shawls made at St. George’s are skillfully created as part of our outreach program. They are created to be given to those in any kind of need of comfort in times of illness, bereavement, or in celebration, such as a baptism or marriage. We believe our hands are God’s Hands. Through the Prayer Shawl ministry, we learn to trust the truth that God works through us when we care for friends and strangers alike.
