From the Rector
 
Dear Friends,
This week I offer a word from Bob Wadley, our business manager. Your giving has helped us continue many of ministries. Thank you. 
 
Peace, 
 
Fr. John Mark
Church Office. For the immediate future, the office continues to be closed. Emails are checked throughout the day, so please feel free to reach out. As always, in the event of a pastoral emergency, you may call the church office, 865-523-5687, select Option 4. 
 
Please note: In the interest of keeping everyone safe and healthy:
  • FACE MASKS are required when you are in the church buildings and
  • Everyone must SIGN IN when entering the building.
 Wheelchairs are needed at the church. We like to have 3-4 wheelchairs in the nave and one in the office/education building, in case of emergencies. Somehow, our supply has dwindled. If you have a wheelchair or small transport that’s not in use, please consider allowing the church to use it. Please contact Marilyn, 865-523-5687, mcanady@stjamesknox.org.
 
Forward Day by Days for August-October are available. Please send an email to Marilyn, mcanady@stjamesknox.org, if you’d like a booklet mailed to you. You may also go to www.forwardmovement.org and click on Forward Day by Day, Today’s Meditation.
 
Memorial Garden. If you would like to visit the St. James Memorial Garden, please let contact the church office at office@stjamesknox.org. A parishioner has volunteered to meet you there to open the gate.
 


Connecting and Learning

Fr. John Mark is blogging on the Website at https://stjamesknox.org/rector/. with short commentaries on different subjects.  And people can even have a discussion on that subject, since comments can be left.

The time to ACT is NOW!
Check out tomorrow’s email for information!
 

Education for Ministry (EfM) still has spots open for you to join others in study and reflection. This long-established course from the School of Theology at the University of the South offers a 4-year group study of scripture, Church history, theology, and mission. The St. James EFM group meets on Sunday evenings and is welcoming new students. Contact Fr. John Mark or Fr. RJ by August 28 for more information. Scholarships are available. 
 
Our beautiful church gardens are faithfully maintained by the St. Francis Guild, a hearty band of folk who lovingly hoe, plant, pull weeds, and so much more. More hands are needed to join the fun. From an hour a week to as much time as you’d enjoy, the Guild welcomes you. Please contact lindadenton09@comcast.net or (865) 591-7880.
 
Our phone tree continues to keep us all in touch. You may have received a call from the person with your name. It’s a great way to visit and you may even make a new friend with your conversation! 
 
If you or another parishioner needs help going to get groceries or medicine, please contact the church office by emailoffice@stjamesknox.org, if possible. We have people who have offered their services to help. 
 
Parish Care Committee.  If you or someone you know has need of a meal, transportation, or assistance due to illness or other situation, please contact the church office, 865-523-5687 or Bea Emory, 865-687-2082beaemory@att.net . If you are willing to help on occasions when needs arise, please contact Bea Emory.
