Children’s Church teachers needed

Still Seeking teachers for Children’s Church: Saint James’ Episcopal Church has made the intentional care and nurture of children and young people a priority and a defining characteristic. Each Sunday there are two teachers per class. If you would like to team teach with another parishioner, please let Michelle know. Call: 347-4342

Note from the Treasurer

Our financial picture continues to look good for our 2013 operating budget, but fall capital campaign projects are coming, so we need everyone to continue to keep up with the Give as God Has Given pledges. We have just wrapped up the parish hall kitchen remodel and are looking to move into the next phase of the stained glass window renovations. Our cash flow for the capital campaign is very important, so please prayerfully consider making a payment on your pledge soon if you can. You can help by:

– Dropping a check in the offering plate this week with a memo stating “Give as God Has Given Campaign” (No amount is too small!)

– Using the e-Giving link on the home page of the church’s website to set-up auto or one-time payments for your campaign pledge

– Considering a special gift over and above your pledge
– If you pay your pledge by gifting stock, choose to do so now rather than waiting until December. (Please contact Parish Bookkeeper Laura Cline for instructions.)

Even if you didn’t have the opportunity to pledge back in 2011, please consider contributing to this campaign so we can keep these capital improvements coming this fall and into 2014! Thank you again for all who have already given so generously. Amazing things are going on in and around this parish and who knows what even greater things God will do through St. James’s Church.

— Colin Borgstrom, Treasurer
