What’s Happening at St. Jacob

Join us for in person worship 9:00 am Sundays

Changes to our service:
Be prepared for modified worship.  Such changes include sitting EVERY OTHER row and SIX feet apart (except for families).  Do NOT shake hands in passing of the peace.  Do NOT congregate in the narthex before or after worship. Wear a face mask during worship. If you feel ill, do not attend. 
Communion will be modified as well.  Pastor Williamson will come to you with the elements as you remain in your pew.  Singing will be very limited; we will speak some of the liturgy instead. The offering basket, bulletins, and hand sanitizer will be on a table in the narthex and at a table at the back-door entrance.  Restrooms will be available but all other rooms will be locked. (See link to May 31 Bulletin below for more details)
Zoom service available at 11:00 Sundays. See weekly bulletin below or “The Loop” email for meeting ID and password.

 Church Council Actions



Worship: Please join us. Attend St. Jacob services and activities to sustain our church through worship, praise, prayer, and fellowship.
Music: The search continues for Organist/Musical Director position.  Substitute organists and recorded accompaniment will be used in the meantime. 
Church Council needs you! The Nominating Committee is currently reaching out to our members to fill the many openings Council has. Chairpersons are needed for Stewardship and Parish Ed. boards. We also need a President and Vice President.  All boards could use additional members to participate. Our sustainability depends on having viable boards to guide the congregation in accomplishing our goals.  Please prayerfully consider stepping up to fill any of these.
Church Vitality: Council is planning brief (30 min), once-a-month, Sunday after-church discussions.  Refreshments will be provided in the social hall.  The starting date and discussion leaders will be announced. Our goal is to start a congregation-wide discussion for St. Jacob on how Christ uses us as Christ’s living body in our community.  All congregation members will receive the four-page guilde.


Euchre Tournaments — 16 attended in September. Tournaments are held the second Saturday of every month. New players welcome.
