Following Christ

As followers of Jesus, we at St. James Lutheran Church strive to carry out Christ's greatest commandments: to love God with our heart, soul, and mind, and to love our neighbors as ourselves (Matthew 22:36-39).  Help St. James as we care for our neighbors this month: 

Our Food Pantry is collecting donations of peanut butter and jelly, pasta and sauce, and bags of rice. 

Our Youth Group is collecting canned goods and money for food for the poverty-stricken people in our community. 

Our Children's Sunday Schoolers (Preschool thru 2nd Grade) are collecting washcloths and soap to make Foot Washing Kits for those who are in need. 

Also, our church is continually collecting small, microwaveable cans of spaghetti, ravioli, and mac n' cheese as well as Poptarts, pudding, jello, fruit cups, crackers, and other easy-to-make food items for students at Red Bank Elementary, who go home hungry on the weekends. 

Follow Christ with us as we help those who are in need in our community. Please bring all donations to the church office, or place them in the appropriate bin in the Narthex of our Sanctuary. Thank you!
