At St James, we are committed to serving our community! We believe this is what God expects us to do. Jesus taught us to pray “Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is heaven.” How would the world look if God’s will was done on earth? The hungry would be fed. The oppressed would be liberated. The lonely would be loved.
During this COVID-19 time, we can’t get together to serve like we usually do. But, there are still things YOU can do! One thing you can do is donate items to our church food pantry. Call the church (327-5989) to arrange drop-off. If you or someone you know could use help from the food pantry, call that same number. The pantry is open on Tuesday and Thursday from 9am to 5pm.
Another thing YOU can do is make PB&J sandwiches! Watch this video from Kristin
This is such a great project! Families, extended families, and neighbors can all work together! Here is an instruction sheet that Kristin put together: PBJ Neighbor instructions.
Here’s a challenge for you: this weekend, organize yourself and friends, family, relatives, and neighbors! Next weekend, make some PB&J sandwiches! Print out the “PBJ Neighbor instructions” and talk to friends and family. You can also post this on your social media. Drop your sandwiches off at St James on Sunday, June 14 between 1pm and 4pm. Pastor Richard will be there and he will drive them down to Casa Maria on Monday, June 15. If you want to follow him down to help with unloading, be at St James at 8am.
In 2020, we are committing to 20 acts of service to our community to help make real “thy kingdom come”. Join us as we serve together for a better world!
At St James, we want to serve others. We believe that God has called the church to help make the world a better place! One way we do this is with our partnership with Holloway Elementary School. We provide “snack packs” to many of the children and host a monthly breakfast for children and parents. Email Pastor Richard if you would like to get involved.
