Cookies For Kairos Prison Ministry 
We need cookies!  A Kairos weekend can use as many as three thousand dozen (36,000) cookies.

We need cookies without fruits, nuts, icing, or sugar toppings.  The cookies need to be home baked and should be packed by the dozen in zip lock bags.

Please bring to the Parish Hall kitchen marked for Prison Ministry by NEXT WEDNESDAY, 26TH.  

Thank you for supporting Kairos in it work to reach the incarcerated with God’s agape love.
Your Brother in Christ,
Deacon Phil

Sermon & Education Recordings

Our sermons and adult education classes are recorded and made available online! This is a wonderful way to stay in touch if you are traveling or have to be away on a Sunday

morning.
 
Please also consider sharing sermons or classes that are particularly useful to you with friends and family who might not attend St. James (or any other church). We hope these resources might draw others into fellowship with us at St. James.
For sermons, visit the Sermons page on our website. For adult education classes, check out our SoundCloud stream.

Do You Have A Prayer Request? 

Prayer requests

St. James is a community characterized by prayer. Please share your prayer concerns with us: it is our joy to lift up your prayer concerns to the Lord just as we lift up our own. We welcome you to bring these concerns to our clergy or the church office or you can share them with us on a prayer request form (located in the entry to the Church) or through our website under the heading “Connect.”
James 5:13-14 Are any among you suffering? You should pray… Are any among you sick? You should call for the elders of the church and have them pray over you, anointing you with oil in the name of the Lord.   

St. Elizabeth’s Guild

St. Elizabeth’s Guild is a women’s organization at St. James named after St. Elizabeth of Hungary who devoted her life to providing relief for the poor and sick. Join St. Elizabeth’s at 10 a.m. in the Parish Hall on second Tuesdays of the month. If you have questions, please call Terry Cagley at (214) 343-8132, Becky Pate at (214) 341-8673, or Mari Omberg at (214) 348-0254.
