Ladies and Gentlemen...and Children

Dear Family in Christ,

This Sunday, Jan. 29, while the women of St. James' meet in the library following the 10am Eucharist, the men are invited to join Nathan Jennings for Christian Ed.  He'll be in the back media room.

All children are invited to Godly Play, offered during the same time, also in the back of the fellowship hall.

After the ECW meeting is over, Kelly and Christina will be meeting in the Godly Play room/s to take account of the story supplies we have.  YOU are invited to join us and come see what Godly Play is all about.  Please prayerfully consider joining Christina in this ministry for our children, as the year progresses.

All Good Gifts Around Us

Dear Family in Christ,

This Sunday, Jan. 22, we celebrate God's abundance by sharing it with others.  Come help us distribute His good gifts--a delicious meal in this case--with those in need in the Taylor community.  Prep starts right after the 10am Eucharist.  And we can especially use DRIVERS for the deliveries once the meals are packed and ready.

If you're an early bird, come to our 8:30am Morning Prayer service, followed by a hot breakfast.  Alternative: invite a friend to breakfast, then stay on for the Eucharist service.  

Godly Play will take place during Meals on Wheels prep time, finishing around 12:15pm.

Women, don't forget our quarterly ECW meeting, happening the following Sunday, Jan. 29, after the Eucharist, in the library.

Bearing Gifts, We Traverse Afar

Dear Friends,
Please join us this Friday night at 7pm for Holy Eucharist, on the occasion of the Feast of the Epiphany.  It's principally when we celebrate the visit of the wise men to the baby Jesus.  It's also the beginning of the season (often called Epiphany) in which we recall the ways the Christ was made known to the world.
Then, this coming Sunday, join us for Holy Baptism.  It's one of the big days for the church to baptize, since this is also the day we remember Jesus' own baptism in the River Jordan.
