Co-Ed Softball Team Forming at St. James
 
The Sports and Recreation Ministry at St. James is happy to announce that Anna Joyner has stepped forward to lead the new Co-Ed Softball team from St. James UMC. The team is now forming to play in the USSSA Softball League of the Greenville Recreation and Parks Department (GRPD).
 
The St. James team will compete in Division C (strictly a fun, recreational atmosphere) of the league. The season starts Monday, March 30, with a pre-season tournament followed by a 12-game regular season and a double elimination tournament. The season generally wraps by July 4. Games will be played Monday through Thursday evenings at H. Boyd Lee Park and other sites as needed.
 
Fees for individuals will be $30. The deadline for team registration is March 19, so if you would like to participate, please email Anna Joyner at acjoyner95@gmail.com.
 
Rise Against Hunger April 5, 2020 in the CLMC
 
How long would it take to pack 25,000 meals?
 
With the right number of volunteers (100 +), about one and a half to two hours.
 
The Rise Against Hunger Experience is coming to St. James. Through this hands-on service event, volunteers can touch the lives of millions of people around the world in critical need by packaging meals.
 
We plan to pack 25,000 meals at St. James through the work of 100-plus volunteers working for less than two hours or 50 volunteers working for four hours. The event will be at 1:30 p.m. on April 5 in the CLMC.
