St. James UMC – Blessed to be a Blessing
There are many basic items that we can give that are huge blessings to others.  Things that we may toss out that others do without.  Let’s respond to our call to God and G.O.D.  – Giving, Outreach and Discipleship.  February Blessings:  Toiletries. Please place travel size toiletries in the container on the Outreach table starting February 10th.  Then come join us when we go out to bless those in need during future Outreach service events.

Matthew 25:35-36 
For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.
