We're expanding our ways to worship, share, learn, and stay connected at St James Episcopal Church in Manitowoc.
Expanding Our Options
We at St James Episcopal Church have been adapting and growing in many ways throughout the course of the pandemic. In some cases, we have started from zero, but we've been improving and expanding our options to worship, share, learn, and stay connected each week. Thank you for your patience, understanding, and support as we have all learned from our successes and mistakes along the way.
As our internet-based opportunities continue to expand, we'll be sending special emails twice a week (typically Mondays and Thursdays in future weeks). These emails will include information about our various at-home opportunities, downloadable PDFs of bulletins, links to view some Worship services live or at a later date, information for connecting to other audio only opportunities, etc. We'll still be sending the St James Weekly email once a week with other information. This means, while our building is closed, you'll be receiving 3 regular emails per week from us to keep you up-to-date and connected.
St James Weekly and the bulletin will be printed and mailed to those we are aware of who do not have email access. If you'd like to receive paper mailings of St James Weekly and bulletins one time or regularly, please contact Amma Diane ( firstname.lastname@example.org or 920-860-5152).
NOTE: The St James Weekly email this week will be sent Sunday evening.
Bible Study - Sunday, April 5 at 8:45AM
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).

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.
