Bethany November 26, 2016

Thanks to all who came to the presentation for your questions and our discussion. It was a pleasure to speak with you and my hope and prayer is that God continues to bless your process and your congregations.

As I said in the presentation the dates in the history section are sometimes disputed especially the further back in history we get. They are there not to be definitive answers but to help us see the patterns and movement in time.

As well the “five solas” are explanations of what the reformers taught and while they form the basis for Protestant Theology their application and emphasis varies depending on the tradition being considered.

If there are any questions please do not hesitate to be in touch at

God Bless,

Rev. Peter


Community Hot Meal

The Tuesday Hot Meal was started in 2004 as an Anniversary project at St. James. Over the last decade the number of meals served has grown and we have welcomed the help and support of area churches and community groups.

In the fall of 2015 we were able with community support to add a Thursday Hot Meal
