Camp Fundraiser Pancake BreakfastCamp Fundraiser Pancake Breakfast

Monday, May 31st (Memorial Day) at 7:30am-11am come have all-u-can-eat pancakes for just $8 a plate. All proceeds go to help raise money for the summer camp going on at Hope Park in Eastpoint. This camp will focus on getting kids closer to the Lord and becoming familiar in the Word of God. The camp will have field trips, activities, games, theme weeks, and more….. it will be a blast! Please come out and help us raise the money we need to make this a success.


At last! We are reopening for public worship this Sunday, July 19th. So many of us really long to be together and so we are truly excited. However, the safety of our congregation and everyone who attends is our first priority. We all need to be as safe as possible and adhere to the social distancing guidelines as well as our safety precautions we have established for our outside service.

The Myer’s have graciously agreed for us to use their restaurant for worship so we will be meeting at Doc’s at 9am.

The following is a list of precautions to follow if you plan on attending service with us:

  1. If you are feeling ill, please stay home and listen online via our Facebook page.
  2. Everyone’s temperatures will be taken when you enter the worship area. A sign in table will be at the entrance.
  3. Everyone will need to wear a mask. If you are not able to wear a mask you can sit in your car or golf cart and should be able to hear from parking lot. (Masks can be provided if you forgot to bring one)
  4. Hand sanitizer will be available as you check in and we encourage people to use it.
  5. You will be seated by family unit with proper distancing.

Let us come and praise the Lord together.  Let’s show our love for our community by being a witness to others that we are in this together to stop the spread of COVID-19, and that we will do what we can to aid in that. Hope to see you there!

In His Love,

Pastor Bob Tindale (850) 933-7955

A New ChapterA New Chapter

After 4 wonderful years at St. George Island UMC, Pastor Brian Brightly will be retiring for the second time. Pastor Brian has been a blessing to SGI and has been the push of many successful missions that have been achieved in our community.

  1. A new after school state funded program in Eastpoint with 100 children
  2. A new family ministry at Hope Park on 159 Bear Creek Rd
  3. An expanded faith based prison ministry working with churches and over 40 volunteers

  5. Continuing thrift stores in both SGIUMC and Eastpoint
  6.  A new scout initiative in Eastpoint, Carrabelle, and Apalachicola; registered as Pack #22 with 35 adults and youth.

His participation and dedication to Franklin County will be missed! Rev. Bob Tindale will be the interim pastor for SGIUMC from July to the time the church is able to select a permanent pastor. Rev. Tindale will be a great asset to SGIUMC and is very familiar with the people of Franklin County. We are excited for the change and warmly welcome him to the family.
