2015 Advent and Christmas at St. James!

Advent Midweek Soup Suppers & Worship:  Gather with us at 6:45pm for soup & 7:30pm for worship during the Wednesdays in Advent. Throughout Advent we begin a year-long reading from the gospel of Luke.  God’s word reminds us that God is “advancing” towards us in the past life of Jesus and into the present and endless future with God in Christ – even in the presence of disaster, suffering, pain and death.  Join us in this journey as we prepare for Christmas with our neighboring churches.
