Membership and Belonging
We welcome everyone, regardless of membership status, to participate in our worship services and events and to get to know us better. Whether or not you are a member, it is easy to belong here at The Church of St. Michael & St. George.
Please approach a member of our welcome team, recognizable by their white carnations or green welcome ribbons, or please sign one of the guestbooks located at either Narthex or in the Great Hall.
All Christians baptized with water in the Name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are welcome to receive Holy Communion. To receive the Bread, extend your palms, crossed and upward; when offered the Chalice, please assist in guiding it. Those who do not wish to receive Holy Communion may come forward for a blessing; please indicate this to the Priest by crossing your arms over your chest.
After the liturgy, please come to the Great Hall for Coffee and Fellowship – just follow the crowd!
Becoming a Member
If you are transferring to The Church of St. Michael & St. George from another Episcopal Church, simply request a letter of transfer from your former parish. For a postcard requesting such a letter, contact our Rector’s assistant by emailing Marlene Kleffner or calling her at 314.721.1502.
If you’ve been baptized, and are transferring from a denomination other than the Episcopal Church, we encourage you to contact the Clergy Assistant by emailing Debbie Fenner or calling her at 314.721.1502 about enrolling in a confirmation class. Confirmation sessions occur every year and are followed by Confirmation by the Bishop. If you’ve been confirmed in another church, you should know that CSMSG recognizes confirmation from most other denominations. Therefore, if you’ve been previously confirmed, you will typically be received into the Episcopal Church.
If you have never been baptized, get ready for a life-changing celebration! Contact our Rector’s assistant by emailing Marlene Kleffner or calling her at 314.721.1502 to make an appointment to meet with our priest, who will then lead you through a process that allows you to ask questions, search for the answers, and to be baptized.
We urge all who have found a home here, members and non-members, to support the work of the Church with your time, talent, and treasure. We encourage all who find their participation with CSMSG to be rewarding and fulfilling to consider contributing financially to the Church. Please email Laurie Brown or call her at 314.721.1502 for more information regarding stewardship.
