I pray and trust that everyone is having a wonderful fall semester! The weather is finally changing, the leaves are turning, and it is the most perfect time of year! Here at St. James, we have also been having an exciting time! 

Firstly, youth group, confirmation, and Sunday School are all in full swing! We have been having a great time growing in community with one another! Our November series for youth group is called "With You," and we will be looking at how we care for others and be with one another in community sharing the love of God. Our Sunday School series will be on some of the smaller letters in the back of the New Testament! I am excited to look at what the scriptures, that can often be overlooked, have to say to our lives. Lastly, Confirmation will be continuing our trek through the Bible as we continue to learn what the Bible is, how it reveals the heart of God, and how we as Christians should read it faithfully!


We have some exciting events coming up as well, and I hope you will join us at the following:


Nov. 28th: Churchwide Advent Wreath Making led by the Youth
Everyone is invited to join us on November 28th from 5:00pm – 6:30pm on the sanctuary lawn to make your own family advent wreath to take home!  We hope to see you come out and celebrate the coming of the Christ Child! This is also a great way to incorporate and celebrate your faith in your homes as a family! 

Dec. 5th: Winter Wonderland - A Youth Fundraiser
On December 5th, from 3:00-5:00pm, the youth group will host the Children in the youth lounge that will be converted to a Winter Wonderland! The youth are asking for a suggested donation of $10 at the door for their trips in the spring. While the kids are having fun, parents can take advantage of the free time for some holiday shopping! Your kids won't want to miss this, as a VERY special guest will be showing up! Right after, the Children's ministry is doing Las Posadas. So join us back at the church at 5:00, as we journey through Bethlehem and witness the coming of the Christ child.  




Dec. 12th: Youth Christmas Party at The Hubbard's
On December 12th, the Hubbard family is hosting the youth group at their house for a Christmas Party! We will have a gift exchange, so please bring a gift ($10 max). We will eat dinner, and play some Christmas games! Hope to see everyone there!
