Seeking OWLs with lawn, weed pulling, garage tidying, sidewalk sweeping projects!

We are looking to match energetic St. James youth with OWLs looking for an hour or two of assistance with outdoor projects at home. Safety and social distancing will be a priority. Think of a project that can be communicated easily and we’ll help make it happen. Please contact Shelly if you’d like to sign up  and indicate the type of project you have in mind as well as a hoped for timetable! 


The news and anecdotes of friends shine a light on examples of fraud being perpetrated on the general public. It comes in all forms - electronic, in the mail, in person. Some of us may have personal examples to share. Tune in to a zoom gathering on THURSDAY, September 17 at 10:00am to learn more about why these attempts are too often successful and how to recognize common tactics. Shelly Holmstrom attended a program recently by the Lake Forest Police Department and is armed with useful information to share. We understand not everyone is using zoom - please remember you have the option of calling in from your phones to listen in without video capability. Please let Shelly know if you would like assistance. A zoom invitation for the meeting will be emailed out the day before.

Creative Writer's in Our Midst?

We have heard from several of you interested in gathering to write a short melodrama of our own - with the intent to perform it one day. Please contact Ann or Tim Anderson if you are interested or have questions. This project will be fun and safe to do while social distancing! Looking to get started in early September.

Worship is at the center of the Word and Sacrament life of our church. We regularly have communion as a part of our worship. All are welcome to come worship our Lord Jesus Christ with us.  Read more
