Lighting a Path for the Next Generation

Lighting a Path for the Next Generation – St James will celebrate its 175th anniversary of the St. James Congregation on June 12, 2022.

The 150th anniversary of the St. James Building is Plans are to honor the past, present, and future of our church family by leaving a gift of legacy with a restoration of the church interior. This is a great opportunity for all members to be part of a project that will enhance our church building for generations to come. October 9, 2022.

This Anniversary Legacy Project entails the repair and interior repainting of the walls and ceiling of the nave of the St. James worship space. The focus of the painting is to refresh, enhance and restore our beautiful worship space for generations to come. The painting will include the seating area, choir loft, stairways and front entry vestibule. The ceiling artwork will also be refreshed and enhanced.

Pay careful attention to yourselves and to all the flock, in which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to care for the church of God, which he obtained with his own blood.” Acts 20:28

It is our turn to enrich the worship space that God has so graciously entrusted to us, so we continue to Live Our Lives Under the Cross—Loving God, Growing our Faith, Serving our Neighbors, and Rejoicing and Giving Him Praise.

 Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. 2 Corinthians 9:7
