Membership Records 


Is your membership at St. James recorded in our books? As Mother Carol prepares to retire, the Parish Register needs to be as accurate as possible. Please consider checking with Carol or Kathie Sandmaier to check that we have you “on the record.” Thanks very much!

Thank You from

The Church at Crossroads


1-9-24

Dear St, James' friends,


Thank you for your most generous sharing with two of our church school families this past Christmas. it was such a blessing when Jackie & the team arrived to share your loving gifts with the parents. Both families have expressed to me how grateful they feel. One parent shared how touched she felt through tears & with thanks for prayers answered. I, too, am deeply touched by all your kindness and for remembering neighbors among us. Thank you again!

God bless you & all your ministry.


Peace & love,

The Rev. Teresa Wakeen,

Priest Missioner of the Church at Crossroads

Looking Forward

St. James' has been invited to join Huron River Methodist, and the other churches in Dexter, for a food packing session on Saturday, April 6. There will be three sessions of 160 volunteers at each session. Rev. Tom Snyder has asked if we would have 10-15 people who would be interested in participating in this. Sessions will run from 9-11, 12-2, and 3-5. Financial assistance would also be welcome as the cost of the meals have risen, but donations are not mandatory.
