Holy Week Activities

We had a great time at St. James during Holy Week this year.
It all began with the waving of palm branches and the singing of Hosannas. It included a footwashing service on Maundy Thursday and a Tenebrae service on Good Friday. Then, we had a weekend of celebrating Christ's resurrection, beginning with an Easter Egg Party and Egg Hunt. Alleluia! Christ is risen!

We’ll also enjoy some delicious Hudson’s BBQ for lunch in our fellowship hall. Please join us for this memorable service, and to get to know the opportunities here for you to participate in growth and fellowship at St. James!

Zumba Fitness at St. James

Zumba classes are starting at St. James on Wednesday, April 27 @ 8PM, and on Friday, April 29 @ 7PM. Cost is $5 per person per class, but the more people who join our class, the more our individual cost goes down! Lynn Madden will be our instructor for this fun and energetic class!

Calling Cards for Soldiers

During the month of March, the Social Ministry Committee collected over $200.00 from our congregation to provide calling cards for a group of soldiers from Batesburg, SC, who are stationed in Afghanistan. The calling cards have been purchased and mailed. Thanks to all who donated to such a worthy cause!
