Summer is coming, help make it count for St. James!
As we near the Summer months at St. James we find ourselves in an interesting place-we are currently ahead of budget!  While this is great news, we will need your help to make sure it continues.  It is important that we maintain good giving habits through the Summer to ensure that we don't fall behind our budget next Fall. There are many ways to contribute:  check or cash in your church offering envelopes, electronic giving (forms are available to help you set this up), automatic bill-pay coordinated through your bank are just a few.  We are incredibly thankful for the generosity of our members and encourage you to keep it up so that we are able to continue to fund our important ministries.  If you have any questions about giving, including managing e-giving, Pastor Andrew can direct you to the right resources.  Again, thank you! God is Good!
Congratulations Confirmands!

Congratulations to our Confirmands!

June Mission of the Month  - Support VBC
For the June mission of the Month, we are accepting donations in support of our Vacation Bible Camp.  We are looking for donations of snacks and drinks.  There will be a sign up sheet in the Community Room with a list of items-feel free to choose anything from list.  If it is easier, you may place a contribution in the basket in the Sanctuary to help offset the cost of these important items!  
Looking Ahead -  Vacation Bible Camp
Come and join the fun!  

Our annual Vacation Bible Camp will be held the week of July 17-21.  The theme for this year is "Maker Fun Factory," a program where kids learn and explore as they become "hands on inventors who discover they are lovingly crafted by God."  Camp will run daily from 9-12:30.  Cost is $25 per child, with a family cap of $60 per family.
