Care 

Be part of our Care Team.  We help each other by providing intercessory prayer, meals, rides to appointments, or friendly phone calls.  If you are heading into or out of the hospital, just let the office know and we can help connect you.

Stock

Our Mini Pantry is a blessing both to the giver and receiver. Drop off shelf-stable items when you see the pantry is bare or take home something when needed.  Monetary donations are also accepted.

Connect

The Episcopal Women's Committee (ECW) is a group devoted to friendship building and ministry.  This group meets once a month over dinner to discuss projects that can serve the church or the larger community.

Cook

Sunday Morning Breakfast between services is a fond tradition at St. James.  We look forward to its return once the pandemic passes.  We would love to know if you would like to help shop, set up, cook, or clean up.

Garden 

For many years many people have helped to maintain the gardens at St. James.  If you have a love of mulch, weeding, feeding, and planting, the Garden Guild may be your niche.  We strive to create a space that visitors can be with God any day or time.

Set

Help the Altar Guild by preparing the table for Holy Eucharist long before the service.  If your love is found in caring for linen, polishing silver, and striving for beauty in worship, this may be your place to serve God and the church.  No prior experience necessary to start.

Fund

For over 50 years the Silver Tea has funded community nonprofits.  This is now a church-wide ministry.  Lots of skills can contribute to making this a successful fundraiser.  Help bake, decorate, polish, or simply offer to carry a box.  All can help.

Knit

The Prayer Shawl Ministry helps to wrap the love of God and our community around those going through difficult times.  Those who knit or crochet can create prayer shawls that are then blessed and shared with those in our prayers.

Read

Lay Readers help to share scripture during our services.  It is a great way to participate in our community.  Perfection is not as important as a desire to help.  Volunteers are assigned monthly to a roster that can be changed as needed.

Socialize

Coffee and Conversation is hosted by volunteers after the Sunday 10:30 service.  Just a desire to host one Sunday a month is all that is needed.  Usually, a sweet and savory treat is provided by the host as well as set up and clean up.   Give it a try!

Usher

Ushers help to meet and greet those who are attending each service.  A nice "How do" and the willingness to help seat guests is the bedrock of this ministry.  On occasion, Ushers help give hints where new visitors can find parking.

Acolyte

As an Acolyte, you can help the minister during service to celebrate the Eucharist.  Help light candles, carry the cross, and prepare the table for the feast of feasts.  This is a great way to serve God and your neighbors.  All ages welcome.

Feast

We look forward, if Covid allows, to hosting Sunday Suppers during the winter months.  Volunteers help organize, set up, serve, and clean up after a feast prepared for the Eureka Springs community.  This feeds the heart as much as the stomach!

Serenade

Although paused for the pandemic, the Peachtree Singers sing hymns and songs to the residents of Peachtree once a month.  Consider joining us for fun and friendship once we can start up again.

Love is shown in so many ways.  How can we help connect you to be a part of our family?
