4th Friday Suppers

St. James’ Episcopal Church has participated in free community suppers since the early 1990s. St. James’ takes the 4th Friday of the month because that is when the need seems to be the greatest – near the end of the month. As a result of this schedule, we don’t serve suppers in November or December because they usually fall near the holidays and many of our parishioners are away. We have offered suppers for so long that it is one of our biggest outreach ministries.

People of St. James’

The Rev. Jane+ White-Hassler – Priest in Charge
John Gregory – Senior Warden
Cassandra Wright – Junior Warden
John Gregory – Treasurer

Members of the Vestry:
Bill Walker

Happenings at St. James’

Book ’n Discussion Group – We will be discussing the book The Unquiet Dead on October 9, 16 and 23.
The book is a mystery by Ausma Zehanat Khan. Besides being a compelling novel, the book gives readers a powerful look into the lives and culture of those of the Muslim faith. On October 30 we will be having a pot luck supper and watching the film of A Street Cat Named Bob.

Ministries on Sundays

Members of the congregation volunteer to provide the many needed ministries on Sunday mornings. These include: Chalice bearer, Acolyte, Greeter, Lesson reader, Prayers of the People, and Coffee hour.
A schedule is posted each quarter of the year.
