ATTENTION ALL BIRD LOVERS!
We welcome Marcie Lockett, local bird expert, to our St. James' Church on Sunday, July 21, from 9 am to 10 am in the Children's Garden on the south side of Gray Hall. Marcie will give us a good introduction to birding in Mississippi with a special focus on hummingbirds. We will listen to and learn how to recognize the sounds of many different birds; discover what local birds eat and why; learn about many different types of bird feeders and also touch on migration. Birding is such a wonderful activity that invites the whole family to step outside and notice one of God's most special gifts of the earth! ALL parishioners interested in birding are welcome! Please bring a folding chair. Offered by St. James' Children and Family Ministries
On July 28, parishioners of all ages, children included, will gather in Fowler Hall for a special St. James’ Day Class.
All of these July classes need a parent or parish volunteer assistant. To volunteer, please contact Mary Nell at firstname.lastname@example.org or 601-664-8709. Offered by St. James' Children and Family Ministries

Yoga on the Labyrinth:
3 pm for about an hour-ish. (Or in Oak Ridge Hall Depending on the weather)
The class is for all levels (beginner to experienced). Bring a mat and a blanket (if you don't have a yoga blanket any beach towel will do - it is just for sitting on and padding our knees) and some water; if you want to bring blocks or straps that is fine as well. As this is a sacred space, all are invited to bring something 'sacred to them' to place on the Labyrinth. If you have any questions contact Ray at 601-940-0037 or email@example.com.
