NeverTheLess – June 3, 2018

 

TODAY AND THIS WEEK

Welcome To All, especially if you are visiting us today. We are delighted to have you here.  If you are visiting, we invite you to fill out a pew card and put it in the plate.

SUNDAY MORNING HELP  

Nursery Vacation    Loida, and her mother, Maria, who, together, oversee our nursery on Sunday mornings, will be taking a well-deserved vacation.  Please let Margaret know if you can help out with our youngest children on June 17; we’ve got coverage for the other 2 weeks. 

Wanted - Warm Smiles and Hearty Handshakes    Summer is a great time to try on a new role in our Sunday mornings.  And ushering is an easy, yet vitally important, role to the smooth running of Sunday worship.  If you are interested, there is a sign-up sheet on the bulletin board at Information Central, or contact Margaret in the office.  Take a week or 2, or a whole month. 

 

JUNE 10 IS A BIG DAY HERE AT SJTL!

   Youth Sunday   As is our tradition, our High School Youth Group will take over the worship at 10 am.  Our graduating seniors will deliver the homily; the whole group will bring you along on an exploration of their journey to near-adulthood; and our St. Cecilia Children's Choir will accompany them. 
   Recognition of Graduates - if you are, or have a family member graduating from High School or College that you would like recognized, please let Margaret (margaret@stjamestheless.church) know your student’s name, school, degree, and if you know it, your student's future plans.  We’ll put it in the bulletin that Sunday.

   Parish Picnic - to close out our regular year, we have our annual Summer Parish Picnic, immediately after 10 am worship.  Vestry provides the chicken and lemonade.  Please bring a favorite dish to share.   

   Bluegrass Mass - the Vassar Family Singers conclude their season with us at 5 pm for the Bluegrass Mass.  A little preachin' and a whole bunch of beautiful music.  Bring a friend, all are welcome.     

 

OUTREACH

Lunches for Kids    The YMCA is working to help disadvantaged children in our community get lunch during the summer weekdays.  If you can help for a day, or a week, or more, please contact Janet Taylor, who is spearheading this vital community effort.  

Helping St. Anne's with CARITAS    St. Anne's will be hosting CARITAS June 9-23.  As we have done in the past, we will help them with our vans for their guests to shower and do laundry.  If you are able to help with driving or co-piloting of an evening, or 3, June 11-14 and/or June 18-21, there is a sign-up sheet on our bulletin board. Or, reach out to Court Warfield (227.3864) who is coordinating the drivers.  

 

ADULT FORMATION OPPORTUNITIES!  

The Work of the People   Sundays at 9 am, in the classroom in Brydon Hall, we bring you an Adult Formation class called The Work of the People.  This is a video curriculum about how we live into our faith in our daily lives.  It is a drop-in class, each session stands alone, and it continues through June 10.  All are welcome.

Bible Study   … also continues on Sundays at 8:45 am in the Rectory! Come join in the lively discussion there.
