Info & Video from our friends at Painting Pathways Clubhouse
For approximately ten years Painting Pathways Clubhouse has held an annual Fall fundraising breakfast. Typically, it is scheduled during Mental Illness Awareness Week, which takes place during the first full week of October and culminates with World Mental Health Day on October 10. Unfortunately, due to the pandemic, they were forced to cancel this event for the past two years. This year they opted for a Zoom presentation which took place October 7. They recorded the event which you may view by clicking on the link below. You will need to cut and paste the Access Passcode in order to view it. The video showcases not only their beautiful new building, but also several incredibly moving testimonies of mental health recovery.
Access Passcode (copy & paste this when prompted): $L6Xh+h=
St James has partnered with Painting Pathways Clubhouse since it was founded. In 2020, we provided a home for them while their new building was being constructed. We continue to collect donations for them as part of our 3-year pledge. If you'd like to donate, please send/drop off your check at the church with "Painting Pathways" in the memo.
Thanks for your support!
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 firstname.lastname@example.org). Thanks!
