Now serving fair-trade coffee

In a desire to model more responsible consumption and in hopes of providing a more enjoyable coffee, we are starting this Sunday serving fair trade coffee.

Fair Trade partnerships create trade agreements that ensure greater equity in trade, better labor practices, and more sustainable and environmentally friendly farming. Please stop by Café and Coffee Hour and let us know what you think.  We will be “sampling” different coffees over the next few weeks and intend to branch into free trade teas as well.

Also, please consider looking for the “fair trade” label on the coffee or tea you enjoy at home.

Café Volunteers Needed!

cafe2Help this tasty ministry!

An opportunity is available to anyone that want to be a part of this vital team here at Saint James’. Helpers are needed in the kitchen to cook and serve each Sunday morning. Please see Eric Cox or let Nancy (in the church office) know of your interest.

This could be simply a one-time or once-a-month commitment – the more people we have to help out, the less we have to rely on a handful of volunteers.

Thanks for your help in feeding our parish!

Bread Baking

THANK YOU for Making 1,246 Loaves of Thanksgiving Bread!OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

A very special THANK YOU to the two dozen volunteers who donated over 160 hours of quality bread baking time this past weekend.  Every set of hands was needed, and all of your work (from the planning to the mixing and kneading all the way through the cleaning up at the end) was greatly appreciated! The final tally was 1,246 loaves of Thanksgiving Bread for our local community.  We supplied loaves  of blessed bread to over 775 Thanksgiving food baskets through Community  Touch in Bealeton and the Fauquier Community Food Bank in Warrenton. We     also supplied several hundred loaves to our own parish families and those we touch in our lives.  We love to hear the stories of the ‘second loaves’ – in the past, our bread has traveled to California, Maine, Canada, and overseas to be with our military members.  Where did you bread go this year?
