Nine Lessons and Carols

This Friday, Dec. 16, at 7:00pm, come hear and join with the St. James' Choir who will lead us in a service of Nine Lessons and Carols.  We are grateful to our lectors who have key roles as well.  Followed by a reception.
There is a long tradition behind this service. See this link for the story.

Almost there!

The pink candle this third Sunday of Advent marks Gaudete Sunday.  It's where we breathe a little, and recognize that we have almost made it to Christmas.  So take time to breathe a little, and leave the checklists, etc., up to the One who loves you.



Join us for Eucharist this Sunday, Dec. 11, 10:00am.  We welcome our guest preacher, the Rev. John Newton, Canon for Lifelong Formation, in the Diocese of Texas.  He will stay on and join Nathan's adult ed. class following worship, at which time we will also offer Godly Play for our young ones.

Find out more about Canon Newton here. 

Church election results: we had three candidates and three spots available on our Bishop's Committee.  All three were approved by a congregational vote on Sunday, Nov. 27.  Congratulations to Rosemary Fellows, Michael Holder, and Martha Sneary.

Don't forget!  Our Lessons and Carols service will be held on Friday, Dec. 16 at 7:00pm.  It is free and open to the public.
