Shred Event

The St. James ESAG (Environmental Stewardship Action Group) will be hosting a free shredding event on Saturday, March 10th, from 12pm-2pm or until they reach capacity.  It will be held in the St. James parking lot.  This is an opportunity to safely and securely discard all of your paper waste from old records.
There will be a five box or bag maximum per person and we ask that this event be limited to residential customers (no businesses please).  Staples, paper clips and thin folders can be shredded along with paper documents, but no three-ring binders please.
Be a good steward and recycle your old records at our free shredding event.



A Labyrinth Is Coming!
What is a labyrinth, you ask? A labyrinth is an intricately woven pattern that is walked by many as a way to experience peace and clarity. Walking the labyrinth is an ancient, sacred custom that symbolizes wholeness. It has been used as a tool for prayer and meditation for thousands of years. It is different from a maze in that a maze is a puzzle that needs solving. A labyrinth has only one path where the way in is the same as the way out. The path leads one to the center and back out again.
During Holy Week, St. James will be hosting a labyrinth with stations to meditate on the last days of Jesus Christ. It will be housed in the Fellowship Hall and available to walk from Monday, March 26 – Friday, March 30, 2018, The open hours will be 9:00 am – 8:00 pm Monday – Thursday, and 9:00 am – 3:00 pm on Friday.
Come during these times and walk the labyrinth as you meditate your journey with Jesus Christ.  Feel free to contact Mike Arny, at 252-367-9967, or any member of our St James Prayer Ministry Committee if you have any questions.

UMW Days for Girls

The St. James United Methodist Women will be holding workshops on Saturdays, February 10th and 24th from 9am to noon in Room 21 to sew and prepare kits for our Days for Girls Project. Sewers and non-sewers needed. We have several projects planned. If you have a sewing machine feel free to bring it to the workshop. We have requests from several of our Mission Teams for bags to take into the mission field this year, so we would like to get started on completing as many bags as possible this year.
