Vacation Bible School ~ July 23-27
It's that time of year already! We need volunteers!! Please sign up if you want to be a part of something incredible. VBS takes more than 40 volunteers to run smoothly. Last year we had over 80+ kids in attendance. VBS has many different volunteer roles. Some that require only a one day commitment and others that invest more time with the youth and families. We have great success when we all pull together!
Something to think about...
When I stand before God at the end of my life,
I would hope that I would not have a single
bit of talent left, and I could say "I used everything You gave me".
Church Tent Use
Two tents were purchased in memoriam of Mert and Dorothy Raschke. The tents are 20 ft x 30 ft and are available for rent to St. James members. Family and friends may use the tents but members must call to schedule and submit the fee. The rental fee of $25 per tent per day is to cover replacement parts and the purchase of additional tents. To rent the tents call Melinda O'Connell at 894-9535. There is a crew available to help with set up and take down. Make checks out to St. James Lutheran Church. Availability is first come, first serve.
