Pentecost Sunday, June 4 —”Happy Birthday, Church!”
The third highest holy day in the church’s calendar is Pentecost which marked the coming of the Holy Spirit upon God’s people, empowering them to take the Gospel into the world. To celebrate this great day, we will have two worship services at 8:30 and 11 am, both with special music, including brass. In between the services, we will host a Birthday Brunch and all are invited to join in the fellowship! This is great day to invite friends to St. James!  Be sure to wear red if you would like, as a sign of the Holy Spirit’s fire!

Women’s Summer Study
Marta McLaughlin will host in her home this 5-week summer Bible study beginning June 20. Tuesday evenings at 7pm June 20-July 18. One of the greatest challenges among women in our culture is taking time to cease from all the activities and busyness and just breathe. By neglecting time we miss out on some of God’s greatest gifts. It is time for us to breathe and build margin into our lives for God. Sound interesting? Contact Marta at and sign up!
Tuesday Evenings June 20 – July 18
