VBS 2024 WAY/TRUTH/LIFE
Adventure Expedition, July 22nd-26th
Our church leaders have been compiling a list of projects that need to be done for our church building and also various things members have requested. The list was discussed at the February Congregational meeting. In the next few weeks this "Opportunity List" will be posted in the narthex. Our hope is that all members will see this list and take the opportunity to use the time/talents/treasures God has given each of us, where ever help is needed! We are a family here at St. James... when we work together great things happen!
