St. James' Weekly - October 28, 2007


Saint James’ Weekly
October 28, 2007


Ephesians 6: 10 – 11: Finally, be strong in the Lord and in His mighty power. Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.


Dear Friends:

Saint Paul is talking about being strong with God’s power – and that the human effort is inadequate, but God’s power is invincible.

How many times we as humans rely on our own strength and power to get things done!

5:55 @ Saint James’: Please try to attend the first 5:55 @ Saint James’ service on Saturday, December 8th at 5:55 P.M.

Yesterday at Diocesan Convention, Bishop Little talked about “Church Planting”, and how when a new church is built that it’s not as threatening to the new attendees because usually most of the people are new – beginning at a new place in their lives. It’s really not unlike moving to a new town and starting fresh.

Your attendance at this first service will be most welcomed for moral and spiritual support!
###

Our Diocese is so fortunate to have a spiritual leader as Bishop Little. I’m so impressed with his insight, his vision for our Church, and his personal interaction with people.

We will be starting a Craft Closet for kids ages 3 – 8 Sunday Schools for Saturday night and Sunday mornings. We need all of those creative little things that you keep saving that have potential as a craft item. See Dave S. for details.

Thank you to those who brought candy in for our Halloween trick or treaters this Wednesday evening.

Dave Swartley’s business, Swartley Construction & Home Services recently moved into their new showroom and offices at 310 South Main Street, Goshen. The employees are busy remodeling the front exterior as well as the showroom for a Grand Opening celebration which is scheduled for Saturday, November 17 from 11:00 – 1:00 P.M. The Parish is invited to attend this event.

Jody and Phil’s open house last Sunday was wonderful. Thank you Jody and Phil. It was an honor for all of us to be part of your house blessing!
