Holding hands and Reaching Out
S and B Group
St. James has an active and lively knitting group that meets biweekly on Thursdays in the lounge. Come and join this group for knitting and fellowship.
The House Groups Lists are posted on the bulletin board by the kitchen. If your name is not on a list, please advise Randy Graham (306)545-6614 or firstname.lastname@example.org. To help the house group leaders, emails are very convenient. If you have an email please add it to the list and possibly check if your email is correct. We start in May with House Group #1.
The 'Healthiest Babies Possible' Layette Outreach Program supplies layettes to the Four Directions Community Health Centre. Each layette includes a quilt or blanket, two receiving blankets, two sleepers, two undershirts, a knitted sweater set, diapers, and a small Vaseline container. Your continued support and donations of items is appreciated. For more information call Louise McMaster at 306-761-2580
St. James Choir
Choir practice is held every Thursday, at 7:30 p.m. at the church. If you like to sing and enjoy good fellowship please join us as we are always looking for new members.
Prayer Shawl Group
We will provide warm shawls to place on the shoulders and laps of those in our midst who suffer the pain of loss, sadness or illness. It has proven to be a truly rewarding ministry to those around us who ache for a comforting word and touch. Many recipients have been richly blessed by these gifts over the past few years and as knitters we are also blessed by each life that is touched and by each stitch that is prayed over as we visit in a communion of love and connection twice a month.
The busy prayer shawl knitters and crocheters will resume their bimonthly gatherings on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday morning of the month from 10:00 a.m - 12:00 p.m.
There continue to be beautiful stories about the way that our prayer shawls and lap blankets have been a blessing to those who have received them! It is an awesome privilege to be a part of something so amazing! Keep up the good work, everyone! If you have any questions, please feel free to call Okie at 306-543-3861 or at email@example.com. If you know of someone in your life who would benefit from the gifting of a shawl, please let us know. Either Okie or Laura will consider your suggestions!
St. James Reach Out Club
The Reach Out Club was started as a way to 'reach out' to those at St. James who would like to get out once a month with a group of people with no agenda other than to socialize, have fun, and eat. It has been a hit as there has been a good turnout each month as we visit various restaurants where we can accomplish this very unique task. If you would like to come out and join us, but need a ride, we can arrange that.
If you need a ride call Joan at 306-543-2647 or Priscilla at 306-543-6473.
If you are coming please sign up on the sign-up sheet in the narthex.
Everyone is welcome!
