A cash bar will be available at the banquet. The cost for the banquet is $45 per person. Total cost for the synod including the banquet is $120 per person. All fees will be collected during check-in. We are not able to accept credit cards. Only cash or checks are acceptable. Checks must be made payable to St. James Church.
