MATTHEW 25 FARM
SPRING HAS SPRUNG Work on the Farm has begun! Spring is in the air at the Matthew 25 Farm! Our first volunteer opportunity of the season is upon us. We will be working in the hoop house this Tuesday (April 9th) starting at 9:30 AM. We will be transferring our tomato seedlings from small starter trays into larger trays. This is done so they can grow large enough to be transplanted into the ground in the hoop house!
If you would like to come out to help, please either call Rick (315-558-2212) or email us so we know you will be coming. The address is 919 Mechanic Street, Tully NY 13159. We hope to see you there!

Ralph Waldo Emerson states so eloquently, “It is one of the most beautiful compensations of this life that no man can sincerely try to help another without helping himself.” Jesus was the ultimate volunteer teaching us that by giving all of himself; we could live in grace.                                                                                                                                                                      
At St. James’, we provide opportunities to serve and lead in various ministries allowing people to achieve their higher purpose.

Volunteers (or Servant Leaders) are at the heart of the growth and operation of our church. Because of volunteers assisting in so many facets, our church can remain viable and accessible to today’s diverse community. In addition, by utilizing volunteers and supporting our mission of igniting passion for Jesus Christ to change lives, we are a closer parish family.

The office of volunteer services assists parishioners in discovering talents and spiritual gifts, matches individuals with ministry options that best fit each talent, and showcases the positive outcomes to the entire church community. Though still in development, this department strives to become the resource hub where parishioners of all ages and talents come to fill ministries large and small found both within the walls of St. James’ and in the community at large.
Together we all can make a difference and serve Jesus actively fulfilling our purpose.
