Ribbons of Thanks

Thanksgiving Day is approaching, and now is a great time to reflect upon all that we are thankful for. Please feel free to choose a ribbon from baskets located inside the church and outside by the front lawn lamp post starting on November 16th, and write down what you are thankful for using the fabric marker in basket. Choose a spot on the bushes or the scaffolding in front of St. James, tie your ribbon to a leaf, twig, or post, and it will be displayed for all to see! We are also collecting donations of canned food for the Human Needs Pantry in the container provided. Read more
