Mission Mondays are back!

 
Mission Mondays are back this summer! Our first one will be Monday, June17 at 10:00am at the Town Commons. We will meet at Town Commons, pick up trash left from the previous night’s Sunday in the Park event, have some play time on the playground, and enjoy a picnic lunch! We will provide trashbags and hand sanitizer. Feel free to bring your own lunch, gloves, or any other trash collecting items that you wish to use! Parents or guardians are required to stay for Mission Mondays.

School Supplies for Local Students

Please help support our school neighbor, Wahl-Coates Elementary School, by filling student supply list bags. Ziploc bags will be available after worship services starting June 30. They need to be returned by August 4.
 
This project is coordinated by the St. James United Methodist Women, and they are getting an early start because of the upcoming floor stripping in the CLMC. If you have any questions, please contact Kirstin Tart (kirstintart@suddenlink.net) or Molly Carpenter (molly@stjconnect.org).
 
 


Children’s Community Garden

The Children’s Ministry Team is pleased to announce that we have a new, children’s community garden behind the church along 8th Street next to the Scout Hut. The four beds and two benches were built by member Pierce Harner as part of his Eagle Scout Project.  It is our hope that these gardens will produce vegetables which we can donate to our own church food pantry. If anyone is interested in helping maintain these gardens, please contact Molly at: molly@stjconnect.org.

Family Worship

Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” (Matthew 19:14)
 
Beginning in October, we are starting something new! The FIRST Sunday of every month will be Family Worship. On these first Sundays, we will not offer Children’s Chapel or Childcare for school-age children during the worship services. Instead, we are excited to have them join us, share communion with us, and worship with the congregation! Nursery will still be provided for infants-4 year olds, and we will have Sunday school classes as usual for all ages during the Living Water hour.
 
For more information, please contact Molly Carpenter at 752-6154 or Molly@stjconnect.org
