True faith in Christ will result in good deeds.
James 2:15-17 Suppose a brother or sister does not have any clothes or daily food and one of you tells them, “Go in peace! Stay warm and eat heartily.” If you do not provide for their bodily needs, what good does it do? In the same way, faith by itself, if it does not prove itself with actions, is dead.
James 2:26 A body that doesn’t breathe is dead. In the same way faith that does nothing is dead.
Join us on Sunday, February 26, 2017 for Flannel Fiesta Sunday at St. James. A long-standing tradition, we wear flannel (items of our choosing) to the service and have fun seeing what outfits our church family comes up with. In keeping with the Fiesta theme, because who doesn’t need a fiesta in February in the U.P., there will be worship music from the Mexican Christian tradition.
Following worship, we enjoy Mexican-style food and Lutheran fellowship! We have a pinata for the children, and music for all! Donations will go to the ELCA Good Gifts Fund, which supplies farm animals and other capacity-building supplies to those in need in many countries.
