HOW CAN YOU SERVE TODAY? 

 

-Vision Alive Sponsorship

   St. James sponsors 34 children in Kenya through Vision Alive. A child sponsorship to cover school fees, expenses and other necessary items is $650 each year.  If you are interested in supporting an orphan, you can choose several options: full support (100%), half-support (50%), or quarter-support (25%). Contact Chris Page for more information. 

 

Betty Lou’s Christmas Collection

There is a tree with tags for families of Betty Lou’s Pantry in the church lobby.  Take a tag and mark the clipboard with your name and the family number from the tag.  Purchase items, wrap them and return them to church with the tag by Sunday, December 9. For more information, please contact Vicky Richter

 

-In-Gathering

  Every Year St. James participates in the Lehigh Mission District Christmas Ingathering. This year our assignment is to provide 30 Christmas gifts for Bethany Ministries (Refugee Resettlement). We also collect miscellaneous items such as personal care items, clothes and toys, which are then combined with other churches and distributed throughout the year to various local organizations like Topton Home, Allentown Rescue Mission, Turning Point, 6th St. Shelter, Bright Hope Pregnancy Support Center of Lehigh Valley and Cedarbrook.

     Check out the small Christmas tree in the Narthex in November and pick an ornament which will have a name and age of the recipient. Add your name to the clipboard opposite the child’s name and number. Bring it back wrapped (no bows please) and labeled with child’s name and place in the decorated Christmas box. You can also purchase small suggested gifts (look on the bulletin board in the hallway) and place in the same box. All gifts are due by December 2nd. We are also asked to donate $50.00 to help with the efforts. Cash or checks can be put in the offering marked InGathering.

    This annual Christmas Ingathering is just one example of what Lehigh Mission District does – by multiplying the ministries of individual congregations, large and small, they are able to make a larger impact for Lehigh Valley individuals in need. Thanks for your help—Social Ministry Team

 

-Knit & Crochet

     CALLING ALL KNITTERS AND CROCHETERS! St. James gifts baby blankets to families when a child is baptized. Our supply of blankets is critically low. We are in desperate need of crocheted or knitted blankets to keep this ministry alive. We have all the supplies-we just need your talent! See Sharon Yapsuga for more information! 

 

 

Work will begin soon on the electrical project in our sanctuary. To date, a total of $18,343 has been collected for this project which will cost about $20,000.  Please designate all contributions “Electrical project.” Thank you, C-Team
