Your Financial Support Matters
Children’s Center will be reopening soon and accepting the children of first responders and essential personnel with an initial class size of five students. This is a significant reduction from their former 13-student classrooms.  The health of the teachers, children and their families are of utmost importance. These children need to return to this place of learning and love. This is the first step in our children’s healing from the trauma and chaos all of us have experienced in the last three months.

We give out of a response to God's love, and call to love and to DO . Your gifts enable St James’s to deliver live streaming worship on Sundays at 10:00 a.m. and Evening Prayer on Wednesdays at 5:30 p.m. as well as to enable our ministries to others.

At St. James's we have several ways to give: 
  • If your custom is to pay a lump sum at year-end, consider setting up a recurring monthly draft from your bank or financial institution, 
  • Create an automatic payment through your online banking portal
  • Simply by using our website, here, you can set up recurring payments
  • Are church App is also a great tool

We are deeply grateful for your engagement and faithful support. Thank you for all you do!
