AFF Bible Study – “James: Pearls for Wise Living”

 by Jeff Cavins and Sarah Christmyer
James is one of the most practical books of the Bible. Like the book of Proverbs, it is a book of wisdom, a collection of teachings on issues faced by ordinary Christians in everyday life. These teachings speak loudly to all those who feel torn between the competing demands of this world and their faith. This study offers “pearls for wise living” by applying the wisdom of James to the present day. For anyone who has struggled to live a truly Christian life, James offers a wealth of practical solutions for handling and even sanctifying everyday circumstances.

2018 Sanctuary Renovations and 30th Anniversary of Dedication

 

Sanctuary Improvements Update

 I’m pleased to say that the majority of the improvements have been completed. We still have a few “punch-list” items such as waiting for the arrival of the statue of St. Joseph, some additional painting and other details to accomplish however. I hope you are pleased with the improvements to our worship space.

I am also very pleased to say we have exceeded our fundraising goal for these improvements. Our goal for these improvements was $35,000 and to date we have received $61,500 with an additional $5,500 pledged for a total of $67,000! THANK YOU for your generosity! Your kindness has allowed us not only to complete the improvements but additionally we were able to commit to the painting of the interior of the church and install some new LED lighting! Any additional funding received will allow us to strengthen our reserves as a parish which, as you know, is important for our future stability. I am so very thankful for all you have done and continue to do for the parish family of St. Bernard!!

Blessings for your generosity and let us keep each other in our prayers.

Msgr. Randy
