Two Rivers Leadership Team Visits St James, Elmira

A welcoming place, inviting us all to work together in mission!  The dance of the Trinity was evidenced in Pastor Han’s message, in song and in the Spirit among the people.  We danced well together, the people of St. James and the leadership team, exchanging ideas.  “Ask me to help!” was offered as an invitation to cooperative ministry.  Thank you!

St James Elmira – a vital part of the Maple Syrup Festival!

Congratulations to the people and pastor of St. James!  They offered folks a warm place to eat their pancakes and access to clean washrooms. Visitors were greeted, welcomed and help offered, including as well, a separate space for breastfeeding. A witness of welcoming the stranger was very much appreciated by visitors to this great annual event in Elmira!  Oh and they did have an excellent chili for sale! Talk to the pastor for details on the chili. Blessings abounded today in Elmira!
