Fellowship Team News

Posted February 4, 2019 By admin

I have greatly enjoyed serving St. Jacob’s by leading the Fellowship Team for the past several years but my school schedule has made it difficult to continue serving in this area. I will still be around and enjoying fellowship with the congregation but I am handing over the leadership to Nate and Kristen.

Please be sure to thank them for volunteering for this position. I look forward to seeing what new ideas they might have for fellowship. Until further notice, the coffee fellowship will stop for the time being.

Thanks so much, Christina.

NEW COMMUNION WARE

Posted February 4, 2019 By admin

In November, the Altar Guild purchased two new pouring chalices and a new wine flagon for use during Holy Communion. We have also received a gift of four new individual cup serving trays with two lids. With these new vessels, St. Jacob’s will become better stewards of the communion elements shared during our worship. With these new items will come a couple of small changes in how we serve the wine. The chalices that were purchased have a pouring lip and will be used to pour wine during the distribution. After receiving the bread, the communion assistant will pour an individual cup of wine for each person. Many of our communion assistants have been trained and found this to be a simple way to serve. The chalices are also much wider at the brim so communion by way of intinction will be much better as well.

One other change will be the frequency by which we receive communion in individual cups. Several have indicated their preference for individual cups rather than intinction. Beginning in February, we will have wine poured on the odd numbered Sundays of the month, and communion by intinction on the even numbered Sundays.

Thank you to all who have attended communion assistant training. Thank you also the members of our Altar Guild who continually work to ensure the preparation of our worship space and altar each week.

A MONTH OF PRAYER

Posted February 4, 2019 By admin

At the next convocation of the North American Lutheran Church, clergy and congregational delegates will elect a new bishop. Bishop John Bradosky is set to complete his final term as the leader of our denomination. The NALC will soon be receiving nominations in order to elect his successor. In the coming months, nominations for this office will be made by NALC congregations. St. Jacob’s will, therefore, observe a month of prayer
asking for the Holy Spirit’s guidance, that we might make an informed decision as to whom we would nominate to the office of Bishop.

Prayers for the NALC and the nomination process will be published each day in February on St. Jacob’s Facebook page. There will also be a prayer booklet available in the church narthex for those who do not use Facebook or the internet. In March, the congregation will have an opportunity to gather for a meal and discuss nominations. Please continue to watch the weekly worship bulletin for more information.
