After two years, St. James was able to once again host their annual Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper. The men did an excellent job in the kitchen flipping pancakes! Those attending enjoyed sausages and pancakes with a variety of toppings. The supper was well attended and both food and fellowship were enjoyed .

The annual meeting was held on Sunday, February 26th after the morning service.  It was followed by lunch and fellowship.

The World Day of Prayer is an international event that started over 100 years. This year World Day of Prayer was held March 3rd at St. James’s and all Rivers’ churches were invited. Focus was on Taiwan with the theme, prepared by the woman of Taiwan, “I have heard about your faith,” based on a passage from the Book of Ephesians in the Bible. The church had displays of Taiwan dresses, flowers and fruits.
