Parish Life & Getting Involved
St. James the Apostle is always grateful for the time and the gifts of the many volunteers that help to make the life at St. James rich and rewarding. There are many ways to get involved: you can join the choir, become a Sunday School Teacher, join the men’s group on Tuesday mornings, volunteer on the altar guild, be a reader, a server or a sidesperson. And, at various times during the year, volunteers are needed for the Christmas Bazaar, the Pancake Supper, the fall barbecue and other events. There is a Bible Study group that meets twice a month on Thursday evenings and there is a Book Club that meets on the 4th Tuesday of the month. Also at St. James the Apostle, opportunities for Christian education are offered during Advent and Lent. If you would like to support the parish, you can also ask for envelopes for your contributions. There is lots to do at St. James the Apostle. If there is an activity or group you would like to get involved with you would be warmly welcomed. If you come to one of the services, please speak with Rev. Monique, one of our wardens, to Marilyn, the administrative assistant or you can contact us through the church office.
The Altar Guild
The Altar Guild is a vital group of people who work quietly behind the scenes ensuring that the sanctuary and the altar are prepared for worship and for performing a number of other very important tasks. Linens are cared for, silver is made to gleam, and the Church is prepared for Harvest, Christmas, Easter, Weddings, Baptisms and many other special services. At present, St. James has four teams with two people per team. Each team works once every four weeks. Two more volunteers would be very welcome to set up one more team. If you would like to volunteer please contact our Altar Guild Director, Cindy Blagdon through the church office.
Being a member of the Altar Guild is truly an opportunity to serve God in a quiet, satisfying way. We are grateful to every member of the Altar Guild for their time and dedication to the many quiet and necessary tasks in preparing the Sanctuary for worship.
