Parish Prayer

Gracious God, you have welcomed us as your dearly beloved children. We give you thanks for the traditions, liturgy and creeds of the Anglican communion that guide our common life. Inspire and empower us to share in the work of the Holy Spirit through prayer, worship, fellowship, education, outreach, and service. Transform us by your grace, so that we might grow as faithful disciples of Jesus Christ, be agents of forgiveness, and welcome others into the embrace of your love. All this we ask in the name of your Son, our Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen.

Announcements

SUMMER BIBLE STUDY/BOOK CLUB: We are looking at Tim Keller's Encounters With Jesus: Unexpected Answers to Life's Biggest Questions. Our next session will be Wednesday, August 20 , in the lobby of the Christian Education building at 7:00 p.m. Refreshments will be served. If possible, please read chapters 6 to 8 beforehand.

WEEKLY COMMUNION SERVICE: The 9:30 a.m. Tuesday morning Holy Eucharist continues throughout the summer. The Tuesday Bible study will be on hiatus during this time.

LUNCH BUNCH: The Lunch Bunch will meet on Tuesday, August 26 at 12:30 p.m. for a potluck lunch at the home of Fjeril Deal's daughter, located at 7 Lincoln Avenue, Smithtown. The house has a pool, so you are welcome to swim. In the event of rain, the lunch is canceled. Please contact Fjeril at 724-3720 to make your reservation.

FOOD PANTRY: September is St. James' turn to staff the Food Pantry. We would like to have three people available per day to assist clients, pack bags, and stock the shelves. If you can donate just 3 hours, it would be much appreciated. There is a calendar on which to sign up in Mills Hall during coffee hour. Corral your friends, and make a morning of it! Donations of juice, canned fruit and canned pasta with protein (such as ravioli) are currently needed. Since children are home from school during the summer, some treats would also be welcome. Donations can be left in the cart in the hallway of the Christian Education building. If you see that the cart is full, please take a turn delivering the food to the Pantry. The Pantry, located at St. Thomas of Canterbury in Smithtown, is open from 9 a.m. to Noon, weekdays.

BUILD-A-BACKPACK: Thank you to all those who donated filled backpacks and supplies for the Habitat for Humanity Build-a-Backpack program. Our generous parishioners enabled us to donate 27 complete backpacks, plus an abundance of extra supplies. The people of Habitat were amazed and thankful for our help.

OFFICE ANGELS NEEDED: Laurie will be taking vacation the week of August 18. Help is needed to cover the office for a few hours each day from Monday through Thursday. If you are available, please call her in the office during the week (584-5560).

SUMMER HOURS: The office will be closed on Fridays during July and August. The Rector will be taking Thursday and Friday off during the same time period due to parish/pastoral commitments on Saturdays. There will be limited office hours during the week of August 18th due to vacation.
