As many of you know we are in the Clergy Call Process. Now that the Discernment Committee has been commissioned by you and we have established our calendar of tasks, it is time for your input. Starting March 1st and running through March 21st, if you are a member or regular attendee and have an email address listed in our system, you will receive a link to a survey to be completed online. We are working with Holy Cow! Consulting to help us conduct our congregation’s assessment.

This year's Mardi Gras International Potluck will be held on Tuesday, February 25th, in Stillwell Hall.  The event begins at 6:00 PM and everyone is invited.  

In 2018 Saint James implemented a preventative maintenance program. Kim Kramer began this endeavor from scratch and we now have a functioning system in place. Map Con software was selected which gives us the ability to archive repairs, replacement dates of components, serial numbers, vendor identification, costs, and much more. Kim has separated the church into specific sections for clarity and simplicity. Regular inspections and maintenance are now scheduled for the entire building and property. Rather than reacting to a problem after the fact, Map Con affords us the ability to identify and often minimize adverse issues in their infancy thus saving money and prolonging the service life of a specific component.

Amid escalating tensions between Iran and the United States following the strike that killed Qasem Soleimani, The Episcopal Church continues to be guided by the teaching of Jesus Christ, “Blessed are the peacemakers.” We affirm that, “It is crucial in this time of instability and threat of violence that our government and our neighbors seek diplomatic and humanitarian solutions rather than violence.” We pray for wisdom, restraint, and divine guidance for our leaders and decision makers, that they can move us away from violence and conflict and towards mutual understanding.
