Outreach is an important way we live out our mission in the world. We believe we are called to reach out with loving arms in order to bring comfort to the afflicted and hope to the hopeless. St. James' Outreach Ministry Team is committed to the transformation of lives through the tangible expression of our faith. Each month we focus on a different need. We focus on local and international needs.
The Outreach ministry is very excited to announce a new opportunity to involve the members of Saint James in a direct hands-on program of service to the community. Starting on the first Friday in March the members of St. James will be preparing dinner for the residents of the San Jose Family Shelter once a month. Team leader, Roy Morse, will be organizing the teams and gathering the necessary supplies. Donations of food and cash will be needed but, more importantly, your time and willing hands are required to make this, our first real hands-on project, a success. Click here to sign up!
