St. James Messenger for 5-6 November
View this email in your browser
You are invited and welcomed to join us for our services this weekend as we celebrate All Saints on Saturday 5 November at 5 PM and Sunday 6 November at 9:30 AM.  Please join us for fellowship in the Parish Hall after Sunday's service.  There will not be fellowship after the Saturday evening service.  Please bring in your Socks this weekend as we continue our outreach with Socks for Saints.  We will also remember those we love and no longer see.  If you haven't done so already, please send in the names of your loved ones.  Remember to FALL BACK this weekend.  Daylight savings time comes to an end.
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.  Financial gifts are also accepted.  Our ingathering is Sunday 13 November.
We had another wonderful event at St. James! 45 members and friends joined us for Trunk or Treat and a delicious potluck dinner afterwards. Many of us are looking forward to the next opportunity to partake in the culinary gifts of our congregation as we celebrate our various Cultural Heritages with a potluck at our Parish Meeting next Sunday after service.
