St. Michael Sunday

Come to St. James this Sunday to celebrate The Feast of St. Michael The Archangel. For centuries, Lutheran Christians have considered this a principle feast of the church. The Lutheran Confessor, Philip Melanchthon, even wrote a hymn for the day, called, “Lord God, to Thee We Give.” So, who was Michael, and what does scripture tell us about angels? Why do we mention cherubim and seraphim, angels and archangels every Sunday during Communion? Find out more about these creatures in our scriptures, songs, and sermon this Sunday, September 29, at 8 and 10:30AM.

Our annual Rally Day is this Sunday, September 29, at 9:15AM. All adult and children's Sunday School Classes are asked to gather together in the Fellowship Hall for our celebration. Join us for fun, fellowship, snacks, and entertainment as we kick off the new Sunday School year with our Youth Group Production of Joseph, This Is Your Life, a show in which Joseph, (of Old Testament and Technicolor fame), is the victim of a surprise reunion with his friends and family. There will even be a special guest appearance by Pharaoh himself! 

We will also provide the audience with an overview of our new upcoming Wednesday night education series beginning on October 9 at 6PM. Plus, we will haer testimonies from various Sunday School students and listen to the debut sing-along song extolling the virtues of Reuben's Famous Sandwich Shop! Mark your calendar for this special event, and don't miss out.
