“POWER OF PRAYER”

images.jpg

Have you ever wondered if prayer works?  I have.And now, I am a true believer it works.

My health took a turn some years ago (which was a very scary time) and I had asked if I could be added to St James prayer chain. 

I felt I needed all the help I could get.

I am very happy to say that my condition has remained stable for the past few years and hopefully will stay that way.

I truly believe that the prayers that have been said for me made the difference.

I want to thank the prayer ministries and parishioners for including me in their prayers over the past years.

I am forever grateful to all of you.

Sincerely,  Nancy McKinley

 

Partnering with the Mobile Lunchbox

St. James has made a commitment to work with the Mobile Lunchbox this Summer!  We have a group serving every Monday from 11am to 12:30pm.

The Mobile Lunchbox program brings lunches prepared by district 191 to communities in which children may not receive lunch during the summer as
consistently as they would in the school year.

Volunteers will be helping with the distribution of the lunches for the kids, as well as helping them to “grocery shop” for foods to bring home, as well as interacting with the kids who come to eat.

Thanks to our St. James volunteers for helping kids out during the summer!

HELP WANTED--Constitutional Review/Update

The St. James Constitution & Bylaws was last reviewed and updated in 2011, and a number of things has changed, both with our congregation/operation and with the St. Paul Area Synod and ELCA. An effort to "get current" the larger church, council members Paul Wojahn and Pam Larson have begun to review our C&B to identify areas where updates are needed. This work will continue over the next several months, culminating a vote to adopt changes at our next annual meeting in January.

This need not (and should not) be a council-only effort. To that end, anyone interested in participating in this review/update is invited to contact Jeff Owens (StJamesPres@hotmail.com) to discuss this opportunity to be of service.
