Once again St. James will be involved at the Grant County 4-H Fair with a church fair booth. We will be distributing items and sharing the love of Jesus through our mission and ministry. The Fair runs from June 19-24. We need many volunteers who are willing to take a time slot at our church booth. Please sign up at the Welcome Center. Everything will be all set for you; we just need you there!

Vacation Bible School - Mark your calendars!!

VBS Theme this year will be MIGHTY FORTRESS  - In Jesus, the Victory is Won!  It will be held the week of June 26-30, from 8:30 - 11:30 a.m. and is open to kids 4-12 yrs of age. There will be a special closing ceremony and lunch on Friday.

Watch for flyers around town! Our online form is now accessible also - Go under the "Ministries" tab at the top of our website, select "Vacation Bible School". The link is right below the Mighty Fortress picture.

**Congregational Involvement** During the month of June, for the weeks leading up to VBS week (4th, 11th, 18th & 25th), we as a congregation have the opportunity to assist in the VBS Mission project for the Boys & Girls Club or Grant County. There will be a mission cart in the narthex for you to bring any amount of the following in for those weeks of June:

  • Paper towels
  • Water bottles
  • Gatorade
  • Cookies
  • Freezer Pops (unfrozen)
  • Capri Sun
  • Contractor Trash Bags
  • Hand Soap
  • Bubbles
  • Little toy cars
  • Hula Hoops
  • Inexpensive nail polish (girls have a "beauty salon")

Let's work to help fill the cart for the mission project!!

The Youth Ministry Team continues to take orders for St. James Wear. Please fill out the order page for t-shirts, polo shirts, hoodies, etc. located at the display table in the narthex. Please make sure to get your order in soon. Please pay when you order.

1st Annual Christmas Nativity Walk

We are embarking on a BIG endeavor to bring the Good News of Jesus to our community by supporting a Christmas Nativity Walk which will be held on Friday - Sunday, December 1st, 2nd & 3rd. Since this will be our "1st annual" walk, there is a lot of preparation. For an overview, we have a Christmas Walk DVD available.

A massive sign-up poster is posted covering all the areas that need to be filled. An information sheet is available at this poster, explaining each area. Thank you to those of you who have already signed up for one or more areas for the Natvity Walk.

This outreach mission project has the potential to touch  many hearts. It will take many St. James members to help it come to fruition. There is indeed something for everyone!!

The Chair for this outreach project is Lori Babb.
