As part of our Families for Food outreach efforts, you, your children of all ages and adults are invited to harvest crops Saturday morning, November 7 from 8:00 - 11:30 a.m. in the Northern Neck of VA (exact located TBD).

Haiti Broadway Babies
Tune in October 17, 7:00 p.m.

Since 2011, St. James’s has supported the St. Joseph Family (SJF) in Haiti through our missions program. Due to COVID-19 & political unrest, our team is unable to continue our vital work in person. What do “doers” do in challenging times? We go virtual! Help us provide a loving home, nutritious meals, medical care, education, and employment to the most disadvantaged in Haiti - former street children, child slaves and those suffering from disability and abject poverty.
Tune in and donate!

Children’s Chapel and More

Our Stewardship Matters
Its Stewardship season, & this is our time to listen to God’s call to us to sustain the mission and ministries of our church. In the coming months we will share some powerful stories about the Holy Spirit moving among us. Pandemic or not, we continue to be Doers because We are the Church.

Our custom of worship and service bond us together as a sacred community. Some of us, like Judy Philpott, respond particularly to Servant Ministry. Judy is an open-hearted Doer. St. James’s has been a big part of her life, and our community - even during COVID - has been her anchor.

Watch Judy Philpott share her full story.

We make offerings in thanks for God’s generosity to us. You are invited to participate and support our transformative ministries. We are into the season of Annual Giving for the year 2021, we want to be prepared to fulfill our call to serve. Thank you for pledging online by filling out the 2021 Pledge Commitment.
