ITEMS OF INTEREST
New or Revised Items
YARD SALE & PARKING LOT: Thanks to the hard work of many parishioners — especially, Lizette Carter & Karen Pryor — we collected $717 from the Yard Sale and $500 from the Cornerstone Parking Lot fundraisers last week. The Yard Sale proceeds will go to the Parish Discretionary Fund (PDF) and the Parking Lot proceeds will be divided between the PDF and ECW Outreach. Well done, one & all!
2019 SILVER TEA RECIPIENT: The results are in! ECHO Dental has been chosen to be this year’s St. James’ Church Silver Tea recipient. Thanks to all who voted at last Sunday’s breakfast and late service.
PDF 1st SUNDAY: The “loose plate” offering this Sunday will go to the Parish Discretionary Fund (PDF). If you choose to write a check for this, please write the check to “St. James’ Episcopal Church” and put “PDF” on the memo line. As a reminder, the PDF is used at the discretion of the clergy for non-budgeted purposes, such as local outreach, disaster relief, etc.
ECW MEETING MONDAY: The May Episcopal Church Women (ECW) dinner meeting will be held this Monday, May 6, in the undercroft at 5:30 pm. Lettuce, bread and dessert will be provided — please come and bring a little “something” to add to the salad. (Note: This will be the last ECW meeting until September.)
GoFundMe FOR BILL HARRIS: A GoFundMe account has been set up for Bill Harris (see link below). Bill was diagnosed with throat cancer a few months ago and has been undergoing radiation and chemotherapy for the past six weeks. You may know Bill from Sunfest Market, where he has worked for 11 years. Bill’s sister-in-law is one of our own, Jane Stephens. Please share this so all who know Bill and Donna can have the option of helping them during this difficult time.
CHURCH DIRECTORY: Our church directory is now on-line (link shown in title at top of page). If, however, you would like a printed version, please contact the office.
