    { We're Glad You've Visited }

    We welcome you and invite you to enter into a deeper exploration of a community that shares the love of Jesus Christ with each other, our city, and the world. It takes more than a few words to describe a parish, but there are two things we can tell you right away: we are committed to Jesus Christ and from that commitment flows our care for one another and our ministries. In every ministry and program, we at St. James' Church on Madison Avenue at 71st Street invite you to enter more deeply into the life we share in Christ. We hope you will join us.

    The Rev. Brenda G. Husson, Rector

    { First Time Families }

    We've found that St. James' mix of rich Anglican tradition and innovative, fun family worship and programming is just the right recipe for helping kids know God's love.

    SPACE TO PRAY. Our services include hymns, prayers, and time for silence, as well as Communion and sermons that connect our Scriptures to our lives.

    SPACE TO BE YOURSELF. Worshipers at St. James' come from many different places, backgrounds, and perspectives.

    SPACE TO MAKE CONNECTIONS. Whether it's your first time or your thousandth, there's always an opportunity to get better connected with God and one another. Join us at coffee hour or stop by the Welcome station on your way out. We look forward to meeting you.

Stewardship 2017

Consecrated to God's work.

When we think about "stewardship," we acknowledge the blessings of our whole lives, and especially in the company of our fellow parishioners. The Church—which we understand to be the body of Christ, who is its head—is, in fact, us. The Church is we who commit ourselves to the work of the Kingdom, in every time and circumstance. It is not someone else, someone in authority: the Rector, her priests, the Bishop. The Church is the person seated beside you on Sunday; the Church is you. The financial commitments we offer are a way of claiming our membership in and commitment to that body, and supporting the work God calls us to do together.

Consider the readings we used in worship on Consecration Sunday this year:

These readings speak of free-will offerings, gifts freely and joyously given to God, the giver of every good gift, by God’s people who offer a portion of that blessing back to God. They speak of a radical lifestyle that calls for living peaceably with all. They speak of being poised and ready for action.

May we, in the company of God’s faithful assembled at St. James', take action by our giving, and position ourselves at-the-ready for the work that God will call us into in the year to come.

How does giving transform the giver? Your fellow parishioners reflect...
