We are continuing to study our way through the Gospel of John using N.T. Wright's book as our guide. If you need a copy of the book, please contact Amma Diane. We start at 8:45AM and end by 9:45AM (allowing a break before 10AM Worship starts).

The Beloved Community is the body within which all people can grow to love God and love the image of God that we find in our neighbors, in ourselves, and in creation. It provides a positive, theologically, and biblically based ideal that orients the work of racial healing, reconciliation, and justice. It is the end toward which the Jesus Movement points.
The Episcopal Church’s Becoming Beloved Community vision frames a path for Episcopalians to address racial injustice and grow as a community of reconcilers, justice-makers, and healers who share a passion for the dream of God. Because this is the work of spiritual formation, and not simply completing a training or implementing a set of programs, individuals and congregations are encouraged to embrace the journey ahead as a long-term commitment.
St James Episcopal Church will begin our Becoming Beloved Community journey with a six-week Worship series at 10AM on Sundays July 12 through August 16. As the summer progresses, we'll have other opportunities to engage more deeply together.
Thanks for your support!
Several people have asked ways they can continue to financially support St James when we are not gathering in person. You can still mail checks to St James Episcopal Church, 434 N 8th St, Manitowoc, WI 54220. Contributions are being regularly counted and deposited. You can also set up one-time or recurring payments through your bank (most offer this for free). Look for "bill pay" or similar options online or call your bank.
People have asked us for an online option to donate, so we have added Tithe.ly to our new web site.
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 the month of July goes toward Painting Pathways Clubhouse, a local non-profit supporting persons diagnosed with a mental illness-- please label your gifts accordingly.

Daily Morning & Evening Prayer on Alexa/Google Assistant
Both Alexa and Google Assistant have learned some Episcopal prayers. Thanks to a partnership with between Forward Movement and TryTank Experimental Lab, you can now say, “Alexa, open Episcopal Prayer” or “Google Talk to Episcopal Prayer” and your device will begin playing the morning or evening prayer podcasts of Foreward Movement (a ministry of The Episcopal Church).
“Whether people are at home or on the go, Alexa’s ability to lead us through the daily office will be both useful and inspiring,” said the Rev Canon Scott Gunn, executive director of Forward Movement. “As a bit of a geek, I’m excited about this marriage of technology and Anglican tradition to equip disciples for daily prayer.”
Depending on the time of day, either Alexa or Google Assistant will either play the morning prayer or evening prayer podcasts, which include the full liturgy of the daily office along with the assigned psalms and readings for the day.
