• Feeding the Hungry …
    For several months now, St. James members have partnered with Pastor Bruce Arnold in distributing a meal to those in need. We gather each Tuesday at 6:15pm by the Lincoln statue about a block from St. James. We hand out food, hygiene items and new socks. We have conversation, build relationships and learn about particular needs. This month Council approved our participation in this ministry. We will need 4-6 volunteers each week to help distribute the contributed food. There is a sign-up sheet in the hallway. We welcome all members to join us in this weekly act of kindness.
  • Scholastic Book Fair October 7-11 …
    St. James Child Development Center is once again holding its annual Scholastic Book Fair. This is an important event that brings the books kids want to read right into our school. It’s a wonderful selection of engaging and affordable books for every reading level. And it’s a great way for members of St. James to support this amazing program. Plus, you can get a little Christmas shopping in early for all of the little people in your life. Please make plans to visit our Book Fair and be involved in shaping reading habits.
