SAINT JAMES CHURCH – SUNDAY SEPTEMBER 8th

 WELCOME TO OUR FALL BBQbbq

This coming Sunday is the annual ‘homecoming’ BBQ. Weather permitting, it will be an outdoor service.

We welcome everyone back from summer breaks, and also officially welcome Rev. Mike Deed as our Rector.   If you have not met Rev. Mike, come out and introduce yourself.

We invite you all to stay after the 10:30am service, and also welcome the 8:30am congregation to join us for the usual hamburgers & hotdogs. If anyone wishes to contribute to the lunch, salads or veggies would be most welcome (desserts are NOT needed). Able bodied parishioners (i.e., younger) are needed to set up chairs for the outdoor service – 9:30am would be a good time to do this.

EXCITING TIMES AHEAD FOR ST. JAMES!!!

FUNDRAISING FOR BAPTISTRY WINDOW

After the insurance money is taken into account, there is a shortfall of $15,260.29.  Fundraising efforts must now commence.   One substantial donation has already been received, for which we are very grateful. Today we are inviting parishioners to make donations to the ‘window fund’. In a basket in the narthex, there are small plastic containers, for you take home and fill with toonies or loonies, and when full return them to church – a relatively ‘painless’ way to contribute.  (If you would like these donations to be credited to you along with your regular givings, write your name on a slip of paper and put it inside or around the little container.)   Or if you would rather write a cheque that is fine too – just mark your donation ‘window fund’. Thank you in advance for your generosity.

~ Your wardens (please ask us if you have any questions.)
