St. James Youth Events 2021-22


This summer July 10-15th (Sunday -Friday) we will join our sister church, St John's Lutheran of Joliet on a mission trip to Nashville TN to do work through a local Lutheran organization called Serve Boldy, you can check them out here:  click here for link . 


St John's have reserved 35 spots and are willing to share a portion of those with us. Numbers are negotiable. What I need to know for the moment are those who are interested, and willing to put down the deposit to lock in their spots. (100$ due by 2/15, remaining 30$ due 3/15)
