THANK YOU FOR YOUR GIVING TO ST. JAMES
We have experienced record giving (offerings and other income) for ministry in Christ’s name in 2020. Thank you for your faithfulness.
Our 2021 Stewardship theme “Season of Gratitude” (October 4th — November 11th, 2020) will emphasize thanks to God and to you for your gifts. Your 2021 pledge will remain the same as 2020 unless you wish to change it.
ST. JAMES EXCEEDS ITS GOAL OF $20,000 FOR LUTHERAN WORLD RELIEF
To date, you have given $22,500 to our fund raising goal for Lutheran World Relief. Thank you for exceeding our goal of $20,000. All monies over our goal go to help those affected by Oregon wildfires. The fund drive concludes October 11th.
On August 4th, the port explosion in Beirut, Lebanon destroyed three forty-foot shipping containers full of LWR quilts and health and school kits. Our St. James kits were most likely among them. This left 24,550 people in the region without needed supplies as the chilly weather sets in. The St. James Council voted unanimously on August 18th to conduct this $20,000 fund drive for those beyond our doors. Your gifts will aid those same people in need. Thanks for your generosity.
