St. James' Parish is as diverse as our 300+ years of history. We draw from the Annapolis area and as far south as Calvert County. We have over 325 families and individuals. At the same time we are striving to, in some ways, remain a parish where everyone feels connected and a part of a vibrant Christian Community. Our parish emphasizes "Remembering the Past, Living our faith, and Worshipping into the Future". In the midst of the Eucharist each Sunday, we clearly proclaim "This is not our table, it is the Lord's, and everyone is Welcome". The Eucharist is extended to young and older, for we are all God's children. We are Sisters and Brothers in Christ and as such it is essential that we relate to each other as a family.

Can you help? We want to clean out the North Barn like we did for the South Barn. We have chosen Saturday, August 15th and will meet at the North Barn at 8 AM. A large dumpster will be there waiting for us. All we have to do is pick stuff up and put it in the dumpster. Please bring gloves, a hat and recommend safety glasses too. If we can get 6 to 10 people it will go very quickly and easily be done by 11 AM. Thank you!

We desperately need help for September and October. Altar Guild sets up the silver, wine, and wafers for the service. We fill the candles. You would not need to clean linens. Each month we have two people assigned to the 10 AM service. Training is provided; you would not be on your own. For more information, or if you are interested, please speak to the clergy or to Paula Davis at PKay621@aol.com.

The coffee hour on Sunday, July 26, will be a special one. We will gather in the Parish Hall after the 10 AM service to offer our thanks to Dawn+ for her ministry among us and to celebrate her recent engagement and her pending move to the West Coast! Let us gather to thank God for his hand at work!

The Summer Breakfast Club Ministry provides bagged breakfast meals to children in southern Anne Arundel County (Lothian and Tracy's elementary school areas). Often the only meals they get during their day are the free or reduced breakfasts and lunches provided at their school.
The Breakfast Club will run for 7 weeks, from July 1st thru the middle of August - Mondays through Fridays. Volunteers from St. James' Parish are needed to pack breakfasts every Wednesday at 6 PM for approximately 45 minutes each week. On Fridays, the Deale Library will be partnering with us to present a special library program. In addition, FoodLink Annapolis, will to provide funds for extra food to families for their weekend. Each Friday, following the Library program, we will hand out a large bag of food to each family to help carry them through the weekend.
For more information, or to sign up to help on one of the Wednesdays listed below, please contact Nola Meyers at email@example.com.
Dates for St. James' Parish Volunteers: July 1, July 8, July 15, July 22, July 29, August 5, August 12 (possibly)
