Announcements

Summer Newsletter: Please pass articles for our Summer newsletter to Angela by Sunday, May 27th.


Taizé Evening Prayer Service: Wednesday, May 23rd at 7pm. Take time out and join us for an ecumenical service of song, prayer and meditation held in the beauty of candlelight. All are welcome.


Gardening Day: Thursday, May 24th, 9am.  Helpers are needed for our annual clean-up of the Butterfly Garden. We will be raking, weeding, trimming, edging and sweeping. There is a sign-up sheet at the back of the church with some items that will help you if you have them. Lunch provided. Thanking you in advance. Caroline Macdonald


On Sunday, May 27th, we will have ONE service at 9:30 am. To be clear, this applies only to May 27th. We will not move to regular summer service hours until July 1st. 
On May 27th, we will be joined by the Rev’d Fred Monteith, a skilled minister and facilitator. Together we will engage in a process to identify those values and actions that we as a community feel are an important piece of our Outreach ministry. We have a dedicated and committed group of volunteers that manage the Outreach budget each. It seems, however, that the congregation has become a bit distant from actively engaging in Outreach work. By this I mean that we are not completely aware of the variety of work our congregation supports. This workshop after the 9:30 am service will give each of us an opportunity to better familiarize ourselves with Outreach here at St. James and, more importantly, will give us room to explore and define and commit to those values we wish to guide us. Jesus asks us little more than to love others, love ourselves, and love God. How do we do this as a community? I hope all of you will take the time to join this conversation.
 


CW Food Bank invites you to their upcoming Appreciation Reception where we would like to acknowledge St. James Anglican Church for its continuous and generous support. Wednesday, May 30th, 7-9pm in the Butterfly Hall. Refreshments at 6:30pm. See poster in the narthex for further information.


Call to Action:  The final gathering before the summer is on Sunday, June 3rd following the 10:30am service. Please mark your calendars.


Gift Cards: Next Order Date is June 3, 2018. If you want to know more about the Gift Card program, talk with Linda Webster or Caroline Macdonald.


Community Meals: The simple act of sharing the same time and space together as we eat a meal provides a commonality that lifts us above race, religion, colour, our abilities and status symbols in a way that few other gatherings do. The Fergus-Elora Social Justice Committee, along with the Centre Wellington Food Bank, is working towards strengthening our sense of community through Community Dinners being held at various times and places in both towns. There is no charge for these meals, and some of the meals are sponsored by local businesses, but a donation box is available for those who are able to support this cause. Centre Wellington District High School hosts these meals monthly. Students who are members of the Social Justice/Amnesty Club and teachers at the school volunteer in the preparation and serving of food, directed by Chef Chris Jess and organizer Diane Ballantyne. This event at the high school, which is currently scheduled for the second Thursday of each month, has now grown to see more than 150 attendees; therefore, the organizers are now looking for others who might assist them at 5:00 p.m. on June 14. If you would like to participate, please contact Diane at kdianeballantyne@gmail.com


The Book Club:  This month's selection is "Somewhere in France," by Jennifer Robson, a novel of the Great War.  We will gather on Wednesday, June 20th, 1:30 p.m. at the home of Anne Warner.  This will be our last meeting until September.  All are welcome to participate in our discussion.


Vacation Bible School: Supplies needed for crafts (before June 10)…. food colouring; glue sticks; cereal boxes. Thank you for your support. Helen Henderson & Joyce Sweeney


Altar Flowers: A new chart has been placed in the narthex for parishioners to indicate if they would like to place flowers on the altar for a particular Sunday. If you are interested in placing flowers on the altar in memory of a loved one or in thanksgiving for an event or any other reason, please add your name to the Altar Flowers list. The cost for purchasing flowers ranges from a minimum of $50.00 to a preferred amount of $70.00.  You may also bring flowers from your garden. Once you have chosen a Sunday on the Altar Flowers Chart, Carole Darrah will be in touch regarding the amount you wish to donate and other details. Please add your name to the list at least 2 weeks prior to the Sunday on which you wish to have flowers. Questions may be directed to Carole Darrah or any altar guild member.


Community Garden at St James:  If you, or anyone you know is interested in planting, maintaining and harvesting your own vegetables, fruit or flowers this year please contact Tammy Rutherford to "adopt" a plot in The St James Community Garden. Email: trutherford111574@hotmail.com or call 519-820-2532


Centre Wellington Food Bank needs instant coffee, cans of chicken noodle soup and mushroom soup. Please leave donations in the baskets in the narthex. Thank you.

Readings:Isaiah 6:1-8; Psalm 29; Romans 8:12-17; John 3:1-17
