[01/13/19]   7:45 am Worship and Church School are CANCELLED this morning.

[01/13/19]   Canceling 7:45 am Worship and Church School

Out of an abundance of concern for the safety of our members, and following the requests of our government agencies that we remain off the roads to minimize interference with plowing and emergency services, our 7:45 am Worship and Church School for Sunday January 13 has been canceled. At 7:00 am tomorrow, we will consider whether we will cancel our 9:00 am and 11:15 am worship as well.

Regardless of the decision we make, for those who would prefer to remain at home, please pray Morning Prayer either from the Book of Common Prayer (beginning on pages 37 or 75, or the one page version on page 137), or check out the online version at or "attend" worship online at our National Cathedral at Use the lessons from, and remember to pray for those listed in, Friday's e-Pistle. And, listen to a sermon you missed, or one you previously enjoyed, from our webpage.

We are the Church. Together, this Sunday, let us pray.

And, above all else, remain safely in God's hands and enjoy the snow God has given us!

The Visioning process continued on April 30 with facilitated discussions on our values and dreams for the future.

[04/30/17]   VISIONING GATHERINGS TODAY! We welcome and encourage all parishioners (from Middle School and up) to attend the Visioning Committee's Small Group Gatherings this morning when we will invite your input as to where God is calling St. James' Church. We will gather in small groups from 9:00 am to 9:45 am in the Janney Parlor, and from 10:15 am to 11:00 am in the Fellowship Hall. Sunday April 30 we will focus on our shared values and dreams with ample opportunity for individual input, as we explore:

1. What three things do you value most about your faith journey with St. James'? Which of these do you believe your surrounding community needs most?

2. What do you believe are the core values of St. James'? How are those values embodied in the ministry of the church? Who are the heroes of the past who embody these values?

3. What are your dreams for the God's mission and ministry in and through St. James'? What do you hope we could do to bless each other as well as those outside our walls who need what we can offer?

Please join us as we take yet another step on our Visioning journey.

Parishioners engaged in small group Visioning on April 23. Join in next Sunday as we continue the small group sessions talking values and dreams!
