Back to School for Wesley Housing Kids

Saint James is partnering with Wesley Housing to provide Elementary school children with school supplies for the fall. You can be involved in one of two ways: (1) donate $26 which will buy the supplies for one child–note B2S on your check or your donation online; (2) pick up the list in the lobby or download here and purchase the items and return them to Saint James. Checks and supplies need to be received by August 20th! Questions? Talk to Linda, Linda@sjumc.net. We will need helpers to drop off at Wesley Housing on Monday, August 21st.

Bridge Building at Springdale House

Women CRUSH Wednesdays

Looking for a way to grow in your faith? Maybe learn a bit and have some laughs too? Women of Saint James are invited (your friends too) to join together once a month on Wednesdays for dessert, coffee/tea and some conversation. We will be using Anne Lamott’s new book called “Hallelujah Anyway, Rediscovering Mercy” and the book of Esther. Our first meeting will be Wednesday, April 12th from 7:30-9pm at the Mission House. Interested? Email Linda, Linda@sjumc.net or see her for more info.
