Ecumenical Worship Service, 10:30am
Annual Community Meal, 1-4:00pm

Worship on Thanksgiving with us!  And consider helping with our for our annual St. James Thanksgiving Community Meal — where the hours slaving away are actually fun, opportunities to visit with others abound, and where you’ll never have to think about the prospect of deli turkey!  We will serve a hot, fresh meal to anyone from 1-4:00pm on Thanksgiving Day complete with turkey, ham, dinner rolls, mashed potatoes, stuffing, and of course pie (in addition to other traditional Thanksgiving dishes.)

We need food donations and people to help with cooking, set-up, serving, and dishes!  People are especially needed to help with clean-up from 4-6:00pm.  Please sign up on the bulletin board, or call the front desk.  Your donation of time and food helps us provide this important ministry to ourselves, our neighbors, and our friends!
