HEARTFELT THANKS !!!!
For the generous donations to the used eye glass mission program. Over the past six years our congregation (here at St. James) has given, to date, 390 pairs of adult and children's used eye glasses and sun glasses. Two teams made the trip to Honduras this spring to bring the gift of sight--including Dr. Douglas Totten and his daughter. Amazing!!!!....keep up the good work.
Our Jr. Youth and chaperones leave Friday, May 31st, to attend the Jr. Youth Gathering in Frankenmuth! They will return on Sunday, June 2nd.
Next Sunday, June 2nd is Graduation Sunday here at St. James! We will celebrate our 2019 Graduates... Daniel Abrahamson, Lexis Bronson, Alyssa Huizenga, Ethan Koski, Liam Lindstrom, Ethan McKenzie, and Hayley Smith. Please keep these young people in your prayers!

The NYG Group is collecting donations of snacks, pop tarts, protein bars, etc., for our trip this summer. If you would like to donated any of these items, they can be placed in the collection tote in the narthex. Thanks so much for your continued support!
Mark your calendar for Sunday, June 23rd. St. James is bringing in an inspirational speaker and juggler! Luke Winger is a juggler/missionary who is a highly entertaining presenter. He combines juggling, storytelling, and scripture to demonstrate how we can live for Christ and how Christ lived for us. This event will offer a meal, an entertaining show, and a strong Christian message. This event is open to anyone. Please sign up TODAY to save your spot. The cost of this event will be $5/person. For any questions, please contact Russell.
