“Providing the congregation with opportunities to serve outside our doors”


Food Bank

Join the fight against hunger in our city.  You can drop off food for the St. James Food Basket anytime. The greatest need is for:

  1. Baby formula & food
  2. Canned fruits & vegetables
  3. Cans of soup or hearty stew 
  4. Macaroni & cheese
  5. Rice
  6. Beans & lentils
  7. Canned fish & meat
  8. Dried pasta & tomato sauce
  9. Peanut butter
  10. Canned, powdered or Tetra Pak milk

There is a bin in the narthex for any contributions you can bring.


Helping in the Community

It's time to fill the cart again!There are opportunities to help others through programs we support throughout the year.  Things like:

  • Out of the Cold -- providing the ingredients and making bagged lunches and a hot meal and collecting socks
  • St. James Food Basket -- collect food for and volunteer time at the local food bank
  • Evangel Hall -- prepare and serve a hot meal
  • Fill the Cart -- during Lent we fill the shopping cart for St. James Food Basket
  • Mitten Tree -- collect mittens, hats, scarves, and slippers for those in need in winter
  • Christmas Families -- each year we provide a hand-up for 4-6 families by finding out their needs and wishes and meeting them through new and gently used items, gifts, food, and grocery vouchers.
