BREATHING IT IN, LIVING IT OUT – Beginning February 2nd, at 5:30pm and occurring every first and third Thursday of the month: there will be a brown bag dinner and conversation. The conversation will gravitate on recent sermons and discussing how we can live out the Word of God in our world today. Feel free to come for the food and fellowship or the conversation or both as you please. Each time together will be a stand-alone talk about specific sermon topics, so if you miss one you haven’t missed anything for our next time! This is a new experience for all of us, so it will evolve around the needs of our community, the needs of our church and as God wills it!

SUMMER CONCERT SURVEY – About a week ago, a survey was sent out looking for feedback on our summer concert series from last year. We would love to get a few more responses before analyzing the feedback. The feedback we received so far has been great but please, especially if you did attend one or more of the concerts, follow the link and give us your feedback. We grow through the understanding what we are doing well and what is not working well. Thank you so much for your help!
PER CAPITA – Per Capita is an annual expense to St. James. Therefore, each member is asked to pay their per capita each year. It is $31.00 per confirmed member for 2023 and is used to fund the operations and mission of the Presbytery, Synod and General Assembly. Your payment is greatly appreciated.
