Altar Flowers

Patriotic-Altar-Dressing

 

 

 

Every week, our worship in the Sanctuary is enhanced by the beauty and creative expression of the flowers on the altar. These flowers are donated by congregation members like you and placed on the altar by the altar guild volunteers.
Altar flowers are a wonderful way to honor a special occasion (birthdays, anniversaries, graduations, baptisms, holidays, etc.) or remember loved ones and friends who have passed away.  Is there someone that you would like to honor? Read more…


Kairos Prison Ministry

Kairos

Kairos Maury Prison Ministry

 
“… I was in prison and you visited me … just as you did it to one of the least of these … you did it to me.”    ~Matthew 25:36, 40

There is an exciting ministry in eastern North Carolina that helps us fulfill Jesus’ teaching.  It is the Kairos Maury Prison Ministry.  This is a volunteer driven, not for profit ministry that is striving to build a church behind the walls of Maury prison.  Their mission is “to share the transforming Love of Jesus Christ to impact the hearts and lives of incarcerated men, women, and youth as well as their families, to become loving and productive citizens of their communities.”

You know, a person does not have to travel to Africa, India, or any third world nation in order to do mission work; there is mission work right here in eastern North Carolina.  There are a number of St. James members that would be happy to share their experiences with the Kairos Maury Prison Ministry.  If God is leading you to serve him in a new way this year, please contact us at kairosmaury@gmail.com.

 


Hospital Reminder

hospitalIf you or members of your family are admitted to the hospital, please call the church office and give the full name of the patient.  One of our pastors visits the hospital almost every day, however we have no way of knowing a patient is there unless we are informed.  HIPAA – the law that protects a patient’s right to privacy – prohibits the hospital from giving information about a patient.
