Hey friends!
 Did you register yet? Our online Bible study started last Wednesday, but you can still join in! Register and download and read the week two handout.

Walking the Way of the Cross with Paul
 is a 6 week Bible study that will be held online using Zoom—a video chat application. 

Here is a description:
The apostle Paul has often been considered a controversial figure in early Christianity, especially in modern times. Paul’s own complex and seeming contradictory writings are partly responsible for his mixed image. Yet at the heart of his difficult texts (and difficult life) was a simple but potent realization: God had sent Israel a crucified Messiah. This key recognition transformed Paul’s entire understanding of God’s ways and of the human response to them. It made the cross of Christ central to his unfolding of what it means to believe in God and of what it means to live a life conditioned by that belief. It placed self-sacrificing love at the foundation and the core of Paul’s view of God, his own apostolic ministry, and Christian life overall. Register hereAfter registering, you will receive an email. About half way down the email, you will see a link ‘Click Here to Join’. This works on a smart phone, computer, or tablet. Just click that link at the start time of the Bible study, and you will be taken to the right place. The password is listed below that link. You can also join by phoning in to any of the +1 numbers at the bottom of the email. Please join our St James Bible Study Facebook Group. Daily Bible readings and offer between session discussions will be hosted there.
Did you miss worship Sunday? Find it here. The Scriptures for this week were John 14.15-21 and 1 Peter 3.13-16. Jesus speaks of both Him and the Holy Spirit being “in us”. What does that mean?
 
Join our Facebook Group!
Our group is a place where we can have conversations, share prayer concerns, and even participate in group Bible studies! Be ready by joining our group TODAY! Go here to join. There are a couple of membership questions you need to answer.
By the way, today, we will start getting to know each other on the group. I will post a question each weekday with the title ‘Tell Me Your Story’. This will be a way for us to stay connected in this time of social distancing and build relationships!
Online worship links will always be on this page.
