The St. James Lenten Devotional Guide is now available!
It includes daily devotionals for the season of Lent (March 1st – April 16th) written by your fellow members of St. James UMC. You can pick up a printed copy of the Devotional Guide this Sunday at church or during the week at the church office.
In this five-session video Bible study, Max Lucado explores the many gifts Christ provided to us at his crucifixion. These include not only the gift of the cross, but also the gift of the thorns that pierced his brow, the nails that tore his flesh and the seamless robe that he removed for us. The empty tomb is where he forever defeated sin and death.
With that tradition and history in mind, the St. James Mission Committee has selected the Community Crossroads Center (formerly the Greenville Homeless Shelter) as our Lenten Missional Focus. The need is great for the center as last year alone they provided shelter and food for 560 different people. So let us do as Jesus asks and help feed the hungry and invite in the stranger.
Van drivers are needed for a new program at St. James, The St. James Adventurers. This is a multi-generational mission for all people to go on one-day field trips. Plans for the next few months are trips to visit the museums in Raleigh, the bird sanctuary in Scotland Neck, the U.S.S. North Carolina in Wilmington, and a baseball game in Kinston. The church needs van drivers to drive the participants to these events. These trips will occur on various days, some on weekdays and some on weekends.
Drivers will receive $10 per hour plus admissions fees and lunch will be paid for. Also drivers need to be trained, have a valid drivers license (a commercial license is not needed) and a church background check.
