Please remember the first Sunday of each month is Brown Bag Sunday. Please bring your donations to the food shelf and leave them in the basket by the west entrance. Remember, this is always the first Sunday of the month.
ATTENTION: We are doing a bi-monthly newsletter to cut down on expenses. Please have all information for the month’s newsletter to the church secretary the Tuesday before the last Sunday of the month by noon to ensure it makes it into the newsletter.
Attention: If you would like to add a prayer request, you need to specifically say it. Telling someone and expecting it to be put on the prayer chain does not work. Also, it needs to come from the FAMILY of the person wanting prayer.
Pray for Missionaries: Remember to keep praying for Ardell & Gordon Graner, the two Methodist missionaries in the Dominican Republic that our church is to pray for this year. They need our constant prayers as they carry on the work for the church.
Watonwan County Humane Society
The Watonwan County Humane Society needs volunteers. If you can help one morning or several mornings from 8:00 to 10:00 a.m., it would mean so much! We need help cleaning cages and colonies, litter boxes and giving fresh food and water. Then spend special time with the cats and kittens giving them the love and attention they long for. It’s rewarding for all involved. For more information please call: Dogs: Sue Leach at 507-388-5006 Cats: Peg Lewis at 507-380-5884
Running a church involves many things. We need…
A healthy dose of prayer.
A sense of commitment and connection to community and future. A dedicated staff and volunteers. Hard work.
And yes… money. Which we hate to ask for but…We need money to cover building expenses, operating expenses, worship expenses and salaries.
We now have on-line giving available. We would like to encourage you to use our on-line giving on our website http://stjamesumcmn.org/ Please remember to check it out and encourage others to use also.
