Fundraiser for Mosaic's Ultrasound Machine

St. James is joining 9 other Lutheran churches in the area to raise funds to replace one of Mosaic’s inoperative ultrasound machines. Without this new ultrasound machine, they cannot provide a way for mothers to see their baby in the womb. It is well-documented that a very high number of women (90+%) choose life after they see a picture of their baby through an ultrasound.

Please join us for Adult Bible study August 8 to learn more about this mission. Please prayerfully consider supporting this ministry. We have provided a donation box in the narthex, you can donate through offering, or through, by selecting “Life Ministry.” This effort is part of the LCMS’ Million Dollar Match grant program. Our goal at St. James is to raise $1000 by 8/31 and LCMS will match our donation!
