Thanks for visiting stjacob.net We are so happy you have found us. We hope you enjoy your time here even if we are not as flashy as some other sites. We are doing our best and, after all, we have important people here......people like you!
Prayers of the Church We pray Christopher Boyd who is in his first week of internship in Montpelier, Ohio. We continue to pray for our newly baptized young gal, Erica Taylor Combs. Others in our prayers include. We are so happy to keep celebrating the fact that Vicky Stirling is doing much better and now is back helping us in the office two days a week as well as coming to worship. Others in our prayers include faithful people like Bev Kingrey, Hank and Shirley Dodson, Pat Muller, Bob Greenlee, Darleen and Jim Payne. We do not want to forget Hannah Steingass studying in Austria and our military men Zac Boyd and Jacob Gore.
We also pray for Helping Hands This great ministry gets a lot of good food out to many people in our area. May is traditionally our month to help. We have also supported them by taking a number of cans over there recently.
Thanks for the laughs on Holy Hilarity Sunday We were so excited to share some good humor on the Sunday after Easter. With the tomb being empty and Jesus alive again it was a great time to enjoy a good laugh.
Prayer of the day for the Sixth Sunday of Easter: Bountiful God, you gather your people into your realm, and you promise us food from your tree of life. Nourish us with your word, that empowered by your Spirit we may love one another and the world you have made, through Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
Lenten Fair was great We had another great evening at our 42nd annual Lenten Fair. We are thankful for the many who joined us for a night of hands on learning about this season of Lent and about our faith. We sure had a lot of good food and crafts and creative items.
Some great scripture These words of Jesus come from our gospel for this coming Sunday......John 14:26 “But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you everything, and remind you of all that I have said to you.”
