Next Sunday, Easter 4/1
We need your help! We are trying to collect current email addresses and cell phone numbers for all of our members here at St. James. This is to help update our new "Servant Keeper" membership software. Next Sunday, 4/1, there will be an insert in the bulletin that we are asking all families to fill out and turn in before leaving the church building! We will have people from our "Servant Keeper Admin Team" collecting these inserts. Thanks so much for your cooperation!

We are in need of a few more Trustees!
The Trustees are in charge of basic church maintenance. They meet on the first Tuesday of each month, at 6:30 pm. At that time they address items needing attention/repair. Each Sunday the assigned 1st service Trustee unlocks the doors, turns on the lights, and shoveling as needed. The assigned 2nd service Trustee shovels if needed and after service, turns off the lights and locks the doors. You do not need to be a "handy man/woman" just need to be willing to help! If you can help, please contact Ron Bailey at 893-5008 or the church office at 894-8471!

Church Nursery Needs
We are looking for a couple of rocking chairs and a changing table for the nursery. We would also like to have a changing table in the Youth House for family events. If you have any gently used items such as these, that you no longer need....we would put them to good use!
Thank you!!

Reminder Canoe Men
Monthly installments of $100 are due the last Sunday of each month.
