St. James Has Got Talent

Last Sunday evening, the congregation of St. James got together for a fantastic night of talent and fun! We cheered on instrumentalists and singers, rappers, actors, and hula hoopers. We also had a dessert contest, and we handed out an evangelism award to the person who brought the most friends. We really do have lots of talent at St. James, and we not only love worshipping together but we also enjoy letting our hair down and having a good time.

Confirmation Class

It's time for Confirmation classes to start up again at St. James, and our young people are ready for it! On the final Sunday in August, all Confirmation students stood before the congregation to make a declaration that they were committed and ready for a new year of study. This Sunday afternoon marked their first week of classes together, and 16 of them came out to study the word of God together! What a blessing. We can't wait to see how they will grow as young disciples of Christ in the year ahead.

Rallying Together

This past Sunday, St. James celebrated the start of a new Sunday School year with Rally Day! We had a great time together as we enjoyed food and fellowship, skits and a scripture verse-based scavenger hunt. Our time together also gave us a chance to hear from teachers and students in all of the Sunday School classes. We have classes for people of every age from infant through adult. Everyone is welcome to join us at 9:15AM each Sunday. We would love for you to join us.

From South Carolina to Tanzania

Back in the month of July, two ladies from St. James traveled to our sister synod in Tanzania to serve as temporary missionaries. While they were there, they taught Vacation Bible School to 250 children, and they presented cross necklaces to them made by the children of our church. In return, the children of Tanzania made crosses that were brought back to our kids here. Sent there with much support and many prayers from our congregation, these ladies were able to provide school uniforms for 25 orphans and layettes for 25 newborn babies. They were also able to help build a house for a widow, her 4 children, and her brother. We give thanks to our Father God for the many ways in which He works through his people here and throughout the world. We also continue to pray for families and children in Tanzania, that they will always know the deep love of Jesus for them.
