Taking the next step together to plan ministry.

Grace and peace to you in the name of Jesus Christ!

What are you doing tomorrow night, April 17 from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m.?  St. James could really use your help!  


Three times a year, we host a Ministry Planning Night.  Those who gather, which starting tomorrow evening will include the entire Council, consider the upcoming Trimester (next four months of the year) and where God is inviting us to do ministry.  A combination of new ideas and longstanding ministries will be considered.  We will think, dream, and identify critical ministries for each of our tri-part vision areas as we seek to build and deepen loving relationships with God, each other, and our neighbors.

Identifying ministry ideas together is the first step in our innovative process of bringing ministry to life at St. James.  Once things are "on the board" we will prioritize, look for areas that need to be strengthened, and begin the search for leaders.  Some leaders will sign up on the spot, while other leaders will commit later.  Each ministry gets a Ministry Plan - which will help flush out the details.  Doreen, as Director of Ministry, serves as a valuable resource in putting this Plan into place.  

Using our proven process, we have done an amazing amount of work together in Jesus' name.  To continue this success, we need as many people as are able to participate.  So.... what are you doing tomorrow night?  

Hope to see you then and, as always, in worship,

In Christ,

Pastor Walt
