Boxing for Hunger

The Youth at St. James are hosting a canned good drive this Friday, January 22, from 6-10PM. They'll be camped out in big boxes in front of our church and will stay outside in the cold until they collect 1,000 canned goods to be donated to a local food pantry. Please consider giving to help this worthy cause.

Servant of The Lord

This new Christmas banner was donated to us by a family from our congregation to honor the ministry of the Reverend William Kyzer, Sr. at St. James Lutheran Church.

Pastor Bill is a son of the congregation and has worked as a visitation minister and assisting minister for many years now. We have been so blessed to have him serve God in this place. At the end of 2009, Pastor Bill retired, and we are sad to see him go! On Saturday, January 9, at 6PM, we are holding a retirement party to celebrate his ministry here and to let him know how much he means to us. All are invited to bring a dish to share. We thank God for Pastor Bill and for the many ways that he has faithfully used his gifts to serve our Lord.
