The Second Sunday of Advent
Sunday, December 8
Worship at 8:00 a.m. and 10:15 a.m.
Celebrant/Preacher The Rev. Kim F. Capwell

It’s a wonderful time of year…really! Gathering with family and friends always reminds me of what’s most important. On Thanksgiving and for five days afterwards my youngest daughter, Christine, and Sophia, her seven-month-old daughter (AND my granddaughter!) were with us. It was a precious opportunity to share life’s joys and struggles and also to bond with Sophia.

As Christmas comes upon us, please remember to focus on the good portion. Pause when you become anxious or frustrated and ask yourself why God has invited you into whatever the opportunity is that lies before you. When our spirits quicken with those around us, God is always in the mix!

God bless!
Fr. Kim Capwell


When Fr. Kim arrived at the Parish House last Saturday, the front door was open. PLEASE REMEMBER if you have a key to the Parish House, when you unlock the door to enter, the door remains open until you have locked it again. For the sake of security, we ask your diligence in this regard. Thank you!

If you would like to be a reader or candle lighter at the lighting of the Advent Candles this Advent season, please let Fr. Kim know at rector@stjamesmillcreek.comcastbiz.net or 302.475.3048. Thank you!


If you have not returned your pledge card and envelope, please do so asap! As St. James’ transitions from an interim to a full time rector, your pledge is critical for us to provide the financial means to maintain our historic 300+ year church.
