There are currently many opportunities for getting involved in ministry, both at St George’s and the Diocese. Now is the time to join in a ministry or two you’ve always thought and prayed about joining. You will be blessed in the service of the Most High!
St George’s—(Tell me you’re interested)—Acolytes (including crucifers, torch bearers, thurifers, book-bearers, AND boat-bearers); Altar Guild; Choir; Cooking Club; Counters; Eucharistic (Ministers AND Visitors); Lectors; Spiritual Formation Leaders (Children, Youth, Young Adults, AND Adults); Committee (Finance, Outreach, Pastoral Care AND Receptions); Little Free Food Pantry; Nursery Helpers (>11 years old-with parent approval for those <16); “St George’s Parish News” editor; AND Ushers.

Four Lay Deputies to serve as General Convention Deputies AND Alternates (Baltimore, 2021); Standing Committee (one Lay Person to serve for a three-year term; AND by region of two representatives from the East AND two from the west to serve for a three-year term); Treasurer of the Diocese for a one-year term; North Dakota Episcopal Foundation; The Episcopal Foundation for Ministry in Higher Education
Committees (Constitution and Canons; Finance; Stewardship, AND Youth); Commission on Ministry; Episcopal Relief and Development Representative; AND Diocesan Council.
It’s my belief that we need to be MORE involved in the ministries of diocese because St George’s is the largest congregation in the western region of the diocese. The Holy Spirit is alive and well in our faith community! We must share what the Holy Spirit is up to in our congregation as we strive to meet our potential. We also have the faith and passion to lead and mentor other congregations to reach their potential. –Canon Hal
