On Monday, August 20, from 6:00 - 7:30 pm, Doreen and Pastor Walt will host a THANK YOU WORSHIP TEAM BBQ to share the appreciation of the whole
St. James community. All who have served on a WORSHIP TEAM this past year are
invited to attend.  PLUS... those of you who are interested in serving in this way are
invited to attend. Mark your calendars if you are in either group.  For the purpose of having enough food - please sign-up at the Answer Booth or online if you are able to attend.

We will share a meal and appreciation. Following dinner (which the church will provide), we will look ahead at the coming year. There will be an opportunity for conversation about how we welcome folks and a chance for feedback and
suggestions on how we can do even better.  
Thanks, Pastor Walt and Doreen Evans

Annual Food Drive for Students at Luther Seminary

Seminary: a college that prepares students to be priests, ministers or rabbis

We have seen our own Sherri Lawrence, Pastor Scott and others before them,  enroll and graduate from Luther Seminary in St. Paul.  This fall 165 new students will begin their formal spiritual studies and hundreds more returning students to serve in God's world.  

St. James is again hosting our Annual Food Drive for the students at Luther Seminary.  International and local students are blessed to have access to a food shelf stocked with food choices that fit their needs.  

Our church has played an important role providing hundreds of pounds of food.  Last year, in early October, 20 bags of food were delivered to the Sem.  This September we are again asking St. James folks for your generous support.  

Most needed items include:

Dry beans, rice, cooking oil, pasta, spaghetti sauce

Canned tuna, peanut butter, canned fruits and vegetables

Taco shells, crackers, nutritious cereals

Personal bath soap and paper products

Thank you in advance for your continued care and support.  The Seminary and students are grateful.

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.

20180625_115432.jpg

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!

“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
