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.

Food Barrel

The blue food barrel that is located in the church narthex has been empited for the fourth time since the beginning of this year. The contents of this fourth barrel were taken over to the Salvation Army food pantry. Please continue to "feed" our barrel by picking up a few extra food items when you go shopping. Cereal, peanut butter and toilet paper are sought after items. Thank you for helping to fill the hunger needs of others.
