St. James Messenger for 13 November
View this email in your browser
You are invited and welcomed to join us for our service on Sunday 13 November at 9:30 AM. Please join us for fellowship in the Parish Hall after Sunday's service.  We will have our Cultural Heritage Potluck as part of our Parish Meeting.  Bring something to share.  This past weekend, we collected 19 toys for the St. John's Hospital Toy Drive and over 180 pairs of socks for the Socks for Saints outreach.  The Sunday School Food drive of 100 food items in 100 days is up to 30 items already!
Can't sew or knit and want to support the SCI Christmas at Sea Program? Bring in items like puzzles, lotion, snacks, tissues, cards, lip balm and popcorn.  Did you know everything on the display table was purchased at Dollar Tree?  A little bit will go a long way to bringing joy to a sailor at sea this holiday season.  Remember to bring your knit and sewn items.  Financial gifts are also accepted.  Our ingathering is this Sunday 13 November.
As we approach the end of the year, it will once again be time for us to prayerfully consider what we can contribute financially to the ministry of St. James.  In a couple of weeks, we will gather with loved ones to celebrate Thanksgiving and count our blessings.  We indeed have been blessed with so much.  How can we show our gratitude to good in our commitment to our faith community?  Pray and think about it. We will collect and bless intention cards on 27 November.
