St. James Lutheran Church - Harper
Welcome to St. James Lutheran Church
St. James is located on the corner of Hwy 290 and Fourth Street in Harper. Bible study classes
for all ages begin at 9:30 a.m. Church services led by Pastor Scott Hofmann begin at 10:30 a.m.
 Holy communion is celebrated on first and third Sundays.

We have a wonderful education program for our kinder through seventh graders. There are
Sunday School classes on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of each month for school age children.
There are monthly youth events for Jr. and Sr. High students of the community such as movie
night, game night, lock-ins, and camp-outs. There is a Youth service on the 5th Sunday of the
month, that is led by our youth.  Check our web calendar for dates and events.
Our youth also attend exciting programs such as the musical theater show,
Godspell and camp
opportunities offered by
Cross Trails Ministry.

Our Church also offers special and unique services on select Sundays, including our bluegrass,
polka, and hymn fest services.  Our church hosts community education programs and
presentations such as SkyWarn weather classes, and "Hanged on a Twisted Cross".

In our community we are very blessed to have MEALS ON WHEELS and volunteers to deliver
the meals.  On Monday 1 hot meal and one frozen meal, milk, juice, and bread is delivered.  On
Wednesday 1 hot meal, 2 frozen meals, milk and juice are delivered.  This is not a low income
program rather it is based on physical needs.  A person may not be able to shop or prepare their
meals and this meal greatly assists them.  It is a program more need to take advantage of.  If
you are able and want to you may pay for the meals but if not no charge is made.  For more
information contact:  Janice Spaeth  864-4357 or
Jeanette Bode 864-4429.

Please join us on Sunday. We look forward to seeing you!

It’s time to begin collecting items for Lutheran World Relief.
We collect cotton fabric and fabric scraps to make a 60 x 80 inch quilt. Two old sheets or blankets
are placed in the middle for warmth. Twin sheets are purchased to put on the bottom side of the
quilt. Some women sew the scraps together to make a quilt top. In October and February we get
together and tack the 3 layers together. We also hem the quilts. At Easter the items are boxed and
taken to Holy Ghost in Fredericksburg. From there they go to TLU and then to warehouses to be
send to wherever they are needed.

We also collect items for kits that are also sent:
