On behalf of the Stewardship Committee, Janet Doyle has sent the following announcement:

St. James is here for all because of God's many blessings to us all and through the thoughtful, caring generosity from our members and friends. Our hearts overflow with gratitude for the tremendous support. How good it is to be among you all!

Each year, the vestry is able to plan the next year's operations because members inform them in advance of the gifts they will provide in the coming year by submitting pledge cards. Through faith-filled generosity, each one of us has the opportunity to help. Please pray with your family members and on your own to make a generous pledge commitment to help St. James Episcopal Church this coming year. Our spiritual well being and good works will be strengthened and maintained with your help.

Look in your mail soon! Reverend Carol and the Stewardship Committee have mailed a letter and a pledge card to everyone and that material should arrive soon. Additionally, for your convenience a pledge card can be downloaded here.  Pledge card  If you have questions about electronic funds transfers, appreciated common stock gifts, and/or giving directly from your IRA, please call the church office (828-693-7458). The need is critical this year especially.

Carol, Christie, Tim, Kevin, and Christoph, as well as every member of St. James, depend upon your support. THANK YOU!!!!"
