Serving the Body Through Holy Communion

Holy Communion is a beautiful act of worship as well as a means of experiencing God’s loving grace. Serving communion offers a special blessing to those who serve in that role. At St. James we celebrate Holy Communion every first Sunday of the month as well as on special occasions such as Christmas Eve and our Super Services.

Keep God’s Children Warm

homelessKeep God’s Children Warm.
 

“For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, …”  (Matthew 25:25-26)

Jesus calls us to serve Him by helping our neighbors who are going through tough times.  When we gather our resources, we can make an amazing impact on the lives of those in need.
 
Keep God’s Children Warm clothing giveaway will begin for the season on Oct. 17th in the Fellowship Hall from 9 a.m. to noon. The event will continue every Thursday through the 2nd week of March 2020.
 
We are in dire need of men’s coats and other winter clothing for men.
 
You may begin leaving donations of used (or new) winter clothing for all ages during the first week of October. There will be containers on the stage in the Fellowship Hall (please note the change of location).
 
Thank you for your continued support!

Prayer Requests

Do You Have a Prayer Request?
We have prayer warriors who want to pray for you. These prayer boxes are available for you to place your prayer requests. Your prayer requests will be shared first with the clergy and then, unless you note otherwise, with our church prayer team. One prayer box is located in the Christian Life Ministries Center lobby and one in the Sanctuary lobby. Prayer is a powerful tool for dealing with the struggles of life. We simply need to let our requests be known.

St. James has a Lost & Found. We store lost items that we have found in the workroom across from Marianne’s office. Look in the corner behind the folding machine for lost sweaters, jackets,

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 Sara Chriscoe: sara@stjconnect.org Read more…
