Mission of the Month - June, July & August


Mission of the Month
Summer




The Mission of the Month for June, July and August will be the Calumet Lutheran Camp & Conference Center in Ossipee, NH.   The primary mission of Camp Calumet is to "support and strengthen the individuals & Congregations of New England" through a variety of year-round programs which focus on youth, families, and Lutheran Congregations throughout the region.   For more information about this unique organization, please visit www.calumet.org.
Summer Worship
Beginning on Sunday June 23, we will be adjusting our worship format slightly for the Summer.  Our schedule will remain the same: 9 am Contemporary and 11 am Traditional.  However, we will be changing the order of service for the 11 am worship.  We will keep the essential elements of worship: Word, Communion, Prayer, and song, but will offer a pared-down service for the summer months that should run for about 30 minutes.  If you have any questions about this, feel free to be in touch with Pastor Andrew or a member of the Worship and Music Team.  
Consider E-Giving - A great option for the Summer Months!

Summer is here! The Church Council and Finance Team would like to thank everyone for their generosity in giving throughout the first half of the year. We are largely meeting our budget because of you and this is hugely important in sustaining our many vibrant ministries. Thank you! During the summer, we realize that worship habits can change. Vacations, time with family, days at the beach, etc. are all gifts to enjoy. We would like to encourage you, should you be away from St. James, to consider maintaining your giving throughout the Summer. We realize that many of you do this, and we are grateful.
 
St. James offers options for electronic giving. E-giving is an easy option that simplifies your contributions to the church and helps us to receive support on a regular basis. If you would like to begin giving electronically, or if you have questions, feel free to contact us in the church office. Forms for e-giving are available on the information table in the Community Room. If you would like to speak with Pastor Andrew or a member of the Finance Team, we would be happy to set up a meeting.
 
Thank you for your continued, faithful support of St. James. God is Good...All the Time!
St James Congregational Barbecue - UPDATE
The Annual St. James Congregational Barbecue which usually takes place in the beginning of June has been moved to September this year. The Church Council made the decision to move the annual picnic to after Labor Day weekend to help ensure that more members of the Congregation are able to celebrate together as June is often a busy time for many families!
