A Message from the Church Council and the Worship Committee:  The 225th Anniversary Committee plans this fall to unearth the 25-year time capsule and bury a 50-year capsule.  Also, other thoughts are to have an old fashioned hymn sing and other special celebrations and renewal activities in late October.

SJUMC plans on participating in the Baltimore County Christian Workcamp (BCCW) for the 9th year during the week of July 16th. This will be the 34th year the BCCW has performed home repairs and provided assistance for the needy in Baltimore County by volunteers of all ages during the third week of July. Two years ago we had a very satisfying experience of helping 2 families by building 2 ramps, first a 50 foot by 4 foot wide ramp in Catonsville and then a 36 foot ramp, in cooperation with Wards Chapel, for a couple who had built an addition onto their daughters house, but could not move into the addition until a ramp was installed. We already have donations from the Circuit Riders and individuals to cover costs for all participants, no monies will come from the Saint James budget. All are welcome to volunteer anywhere from 1 to 5 days. Please let Mike Bostron (410.489.4059 or email Michael.Bostron@gmail.com) know as soon as you can if you are interested in participating this year or would like to donate to BCCW. Also, each volunteer will need to fill out an information form available on the down stairs information table or from Mike and return to Mike.

Vacation Bible School has been announced for the week of July 24-28.  The theme this year is Hero Central - Discover your strength in God!  To register, please go to Life of the Church, then click on Ministries, then Education, then Vacation Bible School.  You will find the registration form and the photo permission form there.  To register your child (ages 3 to rising 5th grade), please complete the forms and return them to the church office by July 12.
