This weekend, there will be something unique happening once again at St. James. We will be hosting a garage sale. This in itself is not unique. Many churches and organizations host Rummage or Garage Sales. It is a popular way of raising funds that involve a bunch of folks. Although we will be engaging a lot of people - we are not in it for the money. In fact, no money will exchange hands. St. James' Garage Sale is FREE! That is why - we are calling it the GREAT GIVEAWAY!
It is a ministry that seeks to serve our neighbors. We are so richly blessed by God's Grace that we gracefully share with others.
True to our vision to build and deepen loving relationships with our neighbors, our GREAT GIVEAWAY will bring neighbors together. There will be something for everyone. Those who give their time and treasures will receive the satisfaction of helping others out. Those who come and receive the many items (clothes, household goods, toys, books, etc.) will be blessed with items that will be given a good 'second' home. Together we will reuse and recycle.
A ministry this large takes many hands and I'm grateful for everyone who freely gave of themselves in the planning, gathering, sorting, and setting up of this ministry. Special Thanks go to our Ministry Host, Kari Owens.
It is a blessing to serve in a church community that is always reaching beyond itself. This GREAT GIVEAWAY is just another example in a long line of ways that we share God's love with others.
As always, I look forward to seeing you in worship,
In Christ’s Light,
