March Mission of the Month-Church Beyond the Walls


Our mission of the month for March will benefit Church Beyond the Walls.

"Church Beyond the Walls (CBW) is a street-¬≠church community called to build solidarity among people from all walks of life -housed and unhoused, poor and privileged, churched and unchurched. We are a specialized mission of the Episcopal Diocese of RI in partnership with the New England Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America."

This is a vibrant and vital expression of Christ's church in our local community.  We invite you to make a contribution to CBW on any of the Sundays in March and to learn more at churchbeyondthewalls.org
February Mission of the Month - Thank You!
Thank you to all who contributed to our February Mission to support We Share Hope.  Thanks to your generosity we were able to exceed the $1,000 match given by a member of St. James!  Thank you to that generous individual for setting such a great goal!

If you have not yet contributed to February's mission, it's not too late!  Feel free to drop a contribution in the offering or mail it to the church office.

These funds will help our friends at We Share Hope continue to do the life-changing work that they do!

Reading Across Rhode Island 2018


"The Hate U Give," the 2018 Reading Across Rhode Island book selection, will be the focus of two events in March sponsored by Barrington Interfaith Partners and the Barrington Clergy Association. The groups are encouraging community members to read the book during February.
 
On Monday, March 5, Jordan Seaberry, Director of Public Policy and Advocacy at the Institute for the Study and Practice of Nonviolence, will address some of the themes of the book. The forum will be at Temple Habonim, 165 New Meadow Road, from 7 - 8:30 pm.
 
On Monday, March 12, from 7 - 8:30, a community wide discussion will be held at St. James Lutheran Church, 49 Middle Hwy. Both events are free, open to the public, and appropriate adults and teenagers.
 
Written by Angie Thomas, "The Hate U Give" is a compelling story told by Starr Carter, the sixteen-year-old protagonist. Starr navigates two worlds: the poor, urban neighborhood where she lives, and her private, suburban high school. She is the only witness to the fatal shooting of her unarmed friend by a police officer. This debut novel examines issues of racism honestly and compassionately.
