Thanksgiving at our Soup Kitchen

It's so hard to believe, but Thanksgiving is right around the corner! And as many of you know, our Great Food program always puts on a full-on banquet the day after Thanksgiving complete with turkey, sides, pies, and so much more.

If you are interested in supporting our Thanksgiving feast, there are two ways you can help out. The first way would be to bring in a side dish (green bean casserole, sweet potatoes, or cranberry sauce) or a pie to the church before Thanksgiving (November 19 - November 22). Please email Margaret Ecker with what you plan to bring (

The second way you can support us is by making a donation to our Great Food program. This will help offset the cost of this special feast for our friends in need.

St. James Men's Retreat

The Men's Group is excited to announce that their annual retreat will be Friday, November 17th - Saturday, November 18. The retreat will start with an evening of fellowship dinner at Ken Robbins's house. Then, on Saturday morning, we will meet at the Cathedral Center from 9AM - 3PM for a retreat led by Father Jon. New members are always welcome! To register, please contact Ken at

Midweek Online Service

​Are you looking for a short midweek service? St. James offers an online Morning Prayer service on Wednesday mornings, from 8:30-9.

​Morning Prayer is an ancient service, derived from those in monasteries and convents, adapted by the brilliant Reformation liturgist, Archbishop Thomas Cranmer, who drew on Old and New Testament scriptures and prayers to create a service that is both simple and profound. It is especially suitable for our on-line service because it requires no clergy (though we often have clergy participate). We parcel out various readings to members of the on-line “congregation.”

​If this sounds appealing and you’d like to try it out, drop a note with your email address to Steve Yeazell ( or Lauren Azeltine (, We’d be happy to welcome you.

We need to hear from our 76 remaining pledgers to raise an additional $56,232

Please do your part!
