To Our Extended Family & Friends at St. James
It has been a tumultuous few months, and by the grace of God, Lee is at peace now. Thank you all for your many prayers, cards, visits, meals, warm hugs and loving words of support and encouragement as we made this journey together. Also, to you who gave of your time and donated food for the lovely funeral luncheon. A special thank you to Pastor Brooks for always "being present" and for the heartwarming and comforting funeral and memorial service messages. I am truly blessed. ~ Sue Carpenter
No Sr. Youth on March 10th.
Thank you, Pastor Lassanske, for conducting services on Sunday.
Sermon on the Mount Series ~
Please join us on Wednesday, March 20th, at 7:30 pm as we continue our Lenten journey...
Week 2: Prayer and Fasting
In this service for Week 2 of Lent, we remember that Lent is a season of prayer and fasting. We grow in our relationship with Christ by communicating with him, and we learn more about him and ourselves by giving up those things that can distract us from our connection to him.
Don't forget to pick up your Lenten devotion after the Wednesday night service. This is a great chance to sit down with your family and do a short devotion together. They will be on a table outside of the Sanctuary after each midweek service. Please take one home!
March Ushers, Elder, Trustee, & Acolytes are responsible for covering the following Lenten Services:
1st Service: 3/13 & 3/27
2nd Service: 3/20
Lenten Service Refreshment Schedule:
Wednesday, 3/20: Board of Elders
Wednesday, 3/27: the Quilters
Wednesday, 4/03: NYG Youth
