Worship at 8:00am & 9:30am
A message from the Vestry
The vestry would like to make everyone aware that for the months of July and August, we have decided to move to one service at 9am. We took many reasons into consideration for this change:
  • This will bring the parish family closer together by having ALL parish members join together in worship.
  • It will allow us to gather together for a single larger service at a time when many people are away.
  • As we communicate progress about our transition, we will all be together to hear the same message.
  • It will help us more easily discuss and explore how St. James' will move forward.
  • It will help us support and better utilize our volunteers (ushers, acolytes, lay readers, etc.)
  • While this will save us a modest amount of money, it may also make it easier to schedule supply priests. 
Attached is a survey that was spoken about and passed out in church on Sunday. There are a variety of services on different Sundays that are possible, and thus we seek your opinion. Please complete the survey and either email it or bring it to church on Sunday.
There are two celebrations that the parish will hosting. On Sunday June 30 th (Fr. Jim and Cynde’s last Sunday), there will be a luncheon after the 9:30 service. Then on Saturday, July 13 th from 7-11pm, we will have a Dinner Dance at the White Clay Creek Country Club. Invitations were mailed to all parishioners this week. We hope you will join us as we celebrate Father Jim and his ministry.
