We know December is the time of year when so many of you complete
your giving commitments and also make plans for the coming year. As you consider
your gift to St. James’s, please think about what St. James’s has done in just the past
few weeks to bring hope, community and light to this challenging Christmas season.
There was the virtual choir performance that went out earlier this week and was viewed by hundreds of you. We opened up the sanctuary this past Sunday to many happy parishioners. There’s the beautiful Christmas Eve service we dearly hope you’ll attend tomorrow night—
and the consecrated communion wafers we’ve made available to everyone.
There was the powerful Service of Hope that brought comfort and perspective to so many. We’ve organized House Churches, a program that will get even bigger in the new year.
Our Children's Ministry produced a lovely Christmas Pageant video that featured sweet and entertaining moments from all the way back to 2002.
We’ve had a robust and passionate Adult Education program, plus our Wednesday Night Fellowship. And our Church Virtual School has been a refuge for
our Middle and High Schoolers.
This church, despite the challenges of the last nine months, has worked incredibly hard
to meet the moment. If you haven’t made your pledge commitment,
now is your chance to meet the moment too.
It’s far more important to make a gift of any size than to not respond to this invitation to give. Thank you in advance for making an annual gift commitment for 2021 by clicking on doers.org/give or by calling Suzanne Hall at 355-1779 x335 to make your pledge.
