Deck The Halls!

St. James is lugging our big boxes out of storage and getting stuff set up for the season of Advent. This week, on the first Sunday of Advent, we'll decorate the church together at our Hanging of The Greens Service during the 8:00 and 10:30AM worship services. Come and worship with us! We'll be singing carols, reading Scripture verses, hanging decor, lighting the tree and candles, and learning the meaning behind all the symbols of the season.

We Lift Our Voices

Our children's choir is singing new songs together every Sunday evening at 6PM. During choir, we not only spend time singing together, but we also practice rhythms, play instruments and games, and we learn about liturgy and the church year.

Happy Birthday, Martin Luther!

Our Kids' Sunday School celebrated Martin Luther's birthday this week. His actual birthday was November 10, 1483, but these 525 years later, his legacy still lives on! During our party, we played on a kid-size Luther game board, decorated Luther Rose crafts, sang songs and ate cake, and even opened some gifts for Luther. Happy Birthday, Martin Luther! We give thanks to God for your life of faith.
