Our Pastoral Care Team could use your help for a few hours each week.  We have several parishioners who are housebound, shut-in temporarily, lonely and / or unwell. An occasional visit or even just a phone call from a caring person can be a great blessing. We provide some training and support. Please contact David Swift through the church office.

WHO WE'RE CELEBRATING

CHILDREN INVITED TO PARTICIPATE

Christmas Eve Pageant Brings Christmas Story to Life (4 p.m.)

Our production continues a tradition of honouring the real Christmas story. We need our Sunday Schoolers and congregation to help put us on the dramatization of the birth of Jesus.

Children are welcome to commit to weekly rehearsals during Jesus And Me (Sunday School) throughout December. There will also be opportunities for those children visiting St. James on Christmas Eve to be involved too!
