To My St. James Family
Thank you so much for the many surprises you have given me. The candy, perch dinner, and Easter lily are just a few of your many gifts, and your cards are always appreciated. Pastor’s visit with communion was such a blessing after so long. I miss all of you. ~ Betty Hager

Congratulations to Chris Rogers!
Her slogan "Faith of Generations" was chosen as the 2022 Anniversary slogan. Thank you to all those who submitted entries for the contest. Chris will receive a $100 gift card for her winning entry. Now strap on those thinking caps again because we need to come up with a logo to go along with the slogan. Entries may be submitted to the office over the next few weeks. They will be displayed and voted on, and the winner will be announced after the committee's June meeting. The lucky winner of the logo contest will receive a $250 gift card. So get those creative juices flowing and put them to paper and get them submitted.

Shower of Love! for Mrs. Strahl
Help us shower Kathi Strahl with love from her church family. She is Retiring at the end of this school year. She has shared her love with many families in our church and our community - she will certainly be missed. Not only has she been a teacher here at Good Shepherd Preschool for 34 years, but she has also served as a Sunday School Superintendent and Youth Choir Director.
Help us show her our love by sending a card with your thoughts. Send a card to:
Kathi Strahl c/o
St. James Lutheran Church
Montague, MI 49437
We will present them at an Open House coming in May. Date and Time will follow. Thanks for taking the time to share your love with her.
Our next blood drive is Monday, May 26th. If you are willing, please take a flyer from the youth board and hang it up around town. We are looking at filling all the time slots.
