Night of Adoration


May 12th 6:00pm-6:45pm In the Church


Jesus said,” Come to me all of you who labor and are burden, and I will give you rest.”


As the month of May draws near, so do the end of grade exams (E.O.G.) and end of class exams (E.O.C.) and finals. This can be a stressful time for students and parents. Therefore St. James is offering a night of StJamesLogoprayerful adoration, available for all students of all grades, to help encourage, strengthen and confirm God’s great love for us.

Relay For Life Luminary

American Cancer Society, Relay For Life, Saturday, April 26, Cabarrus Arena and Events Center

Bulletins for the weekend of April 5-6 will have an insert for anyone wishing to purchase a luminary for $10 in "Honor of" or in "Memory of" any friends or family members that have been touched by a cancer diagnosis. The name of the person designated will be listed on the luminary and will be lit during a ceremony at dusk at the Relay.  Our "Angel Brigade" team from St. James will be credited with each luminary sold. You can also find the form on the St. James website.  Please return them with payment by April 21 in the collection basket or mail them to the address listed on the form.  Checks should be made out to the American Cancer Society. 

Another form you can find on the St. James website is the Survivor Dinner form for any survivors that would like to attend the dinner prior to the start of the Relay.  Survivors eat free and it's $6 each for guest. Please return them to the address listed on the form (a different address than the luminary forms) by April 13.   

EVERYONE is welcome to come to the Relay to see what it's all about.  It starts at 11:00 am and continues all night.  It's free and you do not have to be a survivor to attend.  There will be food, drinks, basket raffles, silent auctions, and entertainment.  Country music singer Darrell Harwood will be performing at 2:30pm.  Thank you for supporting the "Angel Brigade team" and the American Cancer Society!
