We strive to be an inviting safe community for all.
St James Weekly for week of 9/12
In addition to items in this email, the attached St James Weekly PDF includes a variety of other announcements, weekly Vestry Notes, and our weekly prayer list.

Sunday Worship - Sundays at 10AM
In the church and online!
Due to Manitowoc County having high transmission rates again, the Health Dept is encouraging all to wear masks in indoor group settings (including those who are vaccinated), in line with CDC guidelines. We request all wear masks for indoor church activities. The Vestry will monitor area rates and hope this is very temporary.

We appreciate your continued financial support while we are being the church in this different way. Checks can still be mailed to the church, and are regularly counted and deposited. You can also set up payments through your bank (most offer this for free). Online options are available with the link below. We know that these are difficult times for some, and we understand if you are unable to support the church financially. Please contact Amma Diane if you need help connecting to assistance or resources.
Our special offering in odd-numbered months (January, March, May, July, September, November) goes to Painting Pathways Clubhouse, helping those in our community with a diagnosed mental illness. Our special offering in even-numbered months (February, April, June, August, October, December) goes to the Rector's discretionary fund, helping those in need. Please label your gifts accordingly.
St James Weeklyand email list timing
St James Weekly is included in two emails per week, and mailed once per week. When sharing information about projects, programs, and events please send the info as early as possible so we are able to promote over a longer period of time, when appropriate. (To help limit the burden on everybody’s inboxes, we intentionally send only two emails per week to our email list, unless there is a death or other urgent matter.)

Do you ever have trouble clicking our links?
For a variety of technical reasons, links in the emails we send may sometimes malfunction. These are often due to incompatible updates or security settings on various device, software, and web sites. If you click a link in our emails (or attached PDFs) and it doesn't work properly, type in the link manually. Open your web browser and type in the exact link (don't add www or anything else). Manually typing the link should always work properly. We use customized shorter URLs in the format "go.mysjec.com/_______" that make manually typing links easier than the longer URLs for most events. If you encounter a link that doesn't work when you type it in manually, please contact Tony (text, call, or email email@example.com). Thanks!
