Where do hope and faith come from in a time that challenges us?
Come and join us as we gather online to hear insights from both lay and clergy on maintaining and building faith and hope in a time when our lives have been turned upside down.
Having journeyed through the issues of 2020, let’s draw a deep breath, and looking forward to Easter’s good news of hope, what insights do we find looking back? As the world and society have spread a veil of anxiety, gloom, despair, and fear, how do we know and have the assurance that we are still “Children of the Light?”

God is within us, changing us!
We are in the season of Lent! It is a time of renewal and change within. The reason for the change within us is because we have the indwelling of the Holy Spirit. In us resides God, the Spirit of God. Change happens automatically without a lot of work from our part the moment we realize God is within all the time and works in us to make us look like his Son Jesus Christ.
Now that sounds simply philosophical. Yes, sort of philosophical. What that means is we are created in the image and likeness of God and in us, God deposited the power of God to change the world. That power resting in us, whether we realize it or not, is God. When we believe that, we begin to change. When God works within us we change for the better. We will be filled with hope and faith. To grow spiritually filled with hope, I invite you to take a couple of hours of your time to attend the retreat on April 20th. Please register
Everything Holy
Everything Holy comes from the belief that everyday life experience provides us with ample opportunity to transform seemingly mundane moments - like grocery shopping, studying, gardening or working - into something more.

Hi Kids! 
(Ages 3-11)
This week we meet Moses and the Israelites in the wilderness. They are very upset about having to eat the same food and not having what they wanted. God sets a den of snakes into the camp.
In the Gospels we hear Jesus compare himself to the serpent in the wilderness.

Youth Ministries
Hi Everyone!
(Ages 12-18)
Welcome to week three of EYC!
For The Old Testament:
Do you like snakes? In this weeks reading we discover the story of Moses and the Israelites in the wilderness. The Israelites complained to Moses about not having meat to eat or enough water to drink. God, not happy about their complaining, sends serpents into the camp to bite them and then gave Moses a way to save them! What? Why?
For The Gospel:
Jesus compares himself to the serpent in the wilderness. What could it all mean?
Got to and click on EYC enter the classroom. Below is a link to your lesson plan for the week and to the right of the screen is the link to some of the videos we will be watching. Looking forward to see you all there!

Outreach News
Lenten Offerings
Last year at this time, St. James was gearing up to celebrate and support "ONE THOUSAND DAYS of LOVE," an Episcopal Relief and Development campaign to help children in their first 1000 days of life. 
The children of our parish were so excited...they sold hearts, collected change to make a change and then Covid 19 struck before the projects could be completed. Therefore with that in mind, we are designating 'ONE THOUSAND DAYS of LOVE" as our Lenten Outreach again this year. 
Many of you will receive a "mite box" to collect your change for the next 40 days in the Lenten Packets mailed to your home this week. Fill your box with all the un-circulated change we continue to hear about throughout Covid. You can also mark your Outreach offerings " 1000 Days" during Lent. Let us see the need in the world and try to meet it!
As our Bishop Michael Curry reflected on this initiative: " Love allows us to bridge great distances so that children an ocean away are as precious to us as the little ones living right down the block."
