Each Fall and Spring, St. James’ puts their faith into action.  One combined service is held at 9:00 a.m. on a Sunday morning and then the congregation is commissioned to go out and serve the community.  
   
This past Day of Community Service held on October 15th showcased the Holy Spirit alive in so many.  We had over 125 people at our 9:00 a.m. service sending out over 95 people to volunteer in over 18 areas. St. James’ volunteers swept the streets of Skaneateles, delivered bags of flour and sugar to the Masjid Isa lbn Maryam Mosque, created sandwiches for the Samaritan Center, stuffed gift bags for the children at Meachem School, baked and plated over 25 gift plates for community first responders and community agencies, worked on 2018 Christmas ornaments, personalized gift bags for college students, gardened at Matthew House, and so so much more! So many lives are touched by the efforts of St. James’ Community Service. Thank you again for actively igniting 
the passion of Jesus Christ to change Iives! 
 
The next Day of Community Service will be held in the spring of 2018! Be on the look out on how you can join in the joy of serving! Any questions on how you can participate, please contact Nancy Graham, Pastoral Care Team Leader at Nancy@stjamesskan.org or Kip Coerper, Earthworks & Habitat for Humanity Ministry Leader at Kip@stjamesskan.org
