News & Notes 



If you are looking for a way to read your Bible every day, you might want to use this list for a
chapter of God’s Word for each day this week. 

Exodus 18, 19, 20;  Psalm 12; Hebrews 2, 3, 4.

IN-PERSON WORSHIP CONTINUES IN LIMITED CAPACITY-- As we begin to worship again we will be doing so with limited capacity. Our service times will be at 5:00 pm on Saturday, 8:15 am, and 10:00 am on Sunday as well as 7:00 pm on Monday. If you are intending to worship here at church, we ask that you sign up using the link to Sign-up Genius found by clicking on the "Church Service Sign-up" button on the St. Jacobi website. In this way we will have an idea of how many to expect. A list of procedures and precautions that we will observe was sent out via email to members. 

HOSPITALIZED: Delores Gunkel (to Heritage Square); Helen Schweitzer (St. Luke’s)

CALLING ALL COLLEGE STUDENTS: Please use the information sheet located in the back of church to provide your away address along with other contact information. Even if you are attending college locally and/or remaining at home, we would like to know what your plans are. Your church family at St. Jacobi wants to stay in touch with you even as you are away from home.

2020 CONFIRMATION CLASS PICTURES are available for pick-up in the back of church.

COMMUNION WARE HELPERS: The new schedule which began July 4th is in the workroom where we set up for Communion. Please take your copy (which also has phone numbers) in case you need to switch a shift. Thank you for serving by helping with Communion set up/reset and/or clean-up! You are appreciated!

HELP WANTED: A janitor is needed to clean our school and early child care facilities. The position is paid, part-time, 6-7 hours per day, 2-3 days a week—there is some flexibility as per days and hours. We hope to have the opening filled by mid August. Speak with the pastors or stop by the church/school office.

ATTENTION CHURCH CLEANERS: We plan to reinstate the regular church cleaning schedule this upcoming week. We hope to follow the originally planned schedule through the month of September. Please check your schedule if you signed up to be a cleaner, and captains, please plan to alert your teams. We will again print weekly reminders in the bulletin in the “Opportunities to Say Thank You to Jesus” section.

CHURCH CLEANERS NEEDED – Please consider if becoming a volunteer church cleaner is a way you can serve the Lord.  These volunteers save our congregation thousands of dollars each year. We are putting together the schedule for the upcoming year which runs October 2020 through September 2021. There is a sign-up sheet and additional information available on the back table.  Thank you.

OUR WEEKLY WORSHIP SERVICES ARE STILL BEING POSTED ON LINE. Go to and follow the live-streaming link, or go directly to St. Jacobi's Youtube channel at  

IN ADDITION TO ON-LINE SERVICES, YOUR PASTORS HAVE BEEN POSTING DAILY DEVOTIONS ON LINE. Go to our school's Facebook page at:  These devotions enable us to run to our Lord and His promises on a daily basis in these times of trouble. 

PLEASE LET US KNOW OF PEOPLE WHO DO NOT HAVE INTERNET ACCESS. We will try our best to serve them in some way with God's Word, perhaps DVD recordings or sermon copies. Quite a number of people are being served in this way!
