We’ll gather for our Annual Parish meeting - and baked potato bar fund-raiser - immediately following the worship service on Sunday, Jan. 27. At the meeting, we’ll hear reports from parish officers, discuss our 2019 budget, elect new vestry members, elect convention delegates, and conduct other parish business. We will also contrinue the conversation we began at our “Visioning Sunday” in December, as we discern what sort of church we believe God is calling us to be, and whether Mother Becky is the priest we wish to call as our rector. Please plan to be present.
The Broncos may not be in the Super Bowl on Feb. 3, but St. James is certainly in the SOUPer Bowl that day. On FEb. 3, we’re inviting worshipers to bring in donations of canned soup that we can place in our St. Nicholas Gleaners’ Pantry, located on our east lawn. As cold weather has moved in, more and more hungry people in need have been visiting our pantry, and we’d like to make a concerted effort to keep it stocked at all times, but especially this winter. So we’re encouraging folks to bring in all kinds of canned or pre-packaged soup on Feb. 3, but in truth we hope you’ll regularly contribute all sorts of non-perishable food items.
