Upcoming Events

  • adventprog2015
    Wednesdays, Dec. 2, 9, 16, from 7 p.m. - 8:15 p.m. Sabbath as Resistance by Old Testament scholar and spiritual writer, Walter Brueggemann, speaks to a 24/7 society of consumption, a society in which we live to achieve, accomplish, perform, and possess. We want more, own more, use more, eat more, and drink more. Keeping the Sabbath allows us to break this restless cycle and focus on what is truly important: God, other people, all life. Brueggemann offers a transformative vision of the wholeness God intends, giving world-weary Christians a glimpse of a more fulfilling and simpler life through Sabbath observance. The book discussion will be facilitated by the Rev. Ayanna Moore.
  • Saturday, December 5 at 7 p.m. All youth are invited to a party to help decorate wreaths for the annual youth group wreath sale fundraiser.
  • adventkranz1
    Support the youth program by purchasing a beautiful Advent Wreath for your home. Wreaths are $30 each and will be available for pick up on Sunday, December 6. You may pre-order your wreath(s) by seeing Sarah Montoya after the 10 a.m. service, signing up on the sheet found on the Parish Hall bulletin board, or by emailing Sarah. Please include your name, phone number, and the number of wreaths you would like.
  • gifttreeforecs
    A Christmas tree is in the church entryway, adorned with ornaments listing Christmas gifts requested by residents of Bishop Swing Community House. The Episcopal Community Services facility provides long-term housing and services for formerly homeless men and women. Each gift costs about $25 or less. You are invited to take an ornament, and return it to St. James (so the recipient can be identified) with the wrapped gift by Sunday, December 13. Please help us to make the holidays special for people who are struggling to make a better life in SF.
