Love God, Love Others, Love Self

This month, we're reminded a lot about love. As Christians, we know the amazing power of love because we are blessed with God's unfailing love for us. God loves each and every one of us, no matter our shortcomings. I'm reminded this month to extend that same grace and love to others and to myself. We're not perfect, but we all deserve to be loved.

Want to volunteer, but not sure what type of commitment you can make? Contact us! We would love to chat about our volunteer opportunities! 

Here are our current volunteer opportunities:


On Sunday, Feb. 5, children in grades K-5 will learn about the sacrament of Holy Eucharist from Reverend Amelia and Revered Doug during Sunday School. There, children will have an opportunity to ask questions to enrich their understanding.

Learning about the Holy Eucharist is one of four milestones our children will experience at St. James's. The other three are: birth, baptism, and the fifth grade blessing.

Save the Date! Vacation Bible School will be June 26-29 from 9am-12pm each day. Registration and more information to come!

Celebrating Epiphany and service in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr

Epiphany Party

We celebrated Blake's ordination and Epiphany. Families could pick up bags with candles and chalk to invite blessings upon their homes. Children and youth also made stars to hang in their windows.

MLK Family Service Project

In honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., we completed different service projects during formation hour for CARITAS. We decorated placemats, filled bookbags, and made cookies and chili for one night's dinner. All ages were out for this event!

MLK Service Lock-In

Youth participated in a service lock-in over MLK weekend. They scraped, painted, and cleaned the Catacombs, which is used as a meeting space for NA and AA groups.
