Freewill Offering
Today we are gathering a freewill offering at both services for Paul and Kati in gratitude for their year here at St. James!!



Vicar Paul & Kati Gaschler
Today is Vicar Paul and Kati's last day with us. They will be heading back to Fort Wayne where Paul will begin his fourth year at the Seminary this fall. We wish them the very best and we are so thankful for the time they were able to spend with us. May God watch over them and, when the time is right, put them where they are needed most!
