We're working to become a Creation Justice congregation

We have the power to bring about the change the world needs now.
On April 16, 2023, the Church Council of St. James UCC unanimously empowered our church's Mission and Social Action Team to begin the process of our becoming a Creation Justice church and educating ourselves about the steps and actions that will be involved. "Creation Justice" is a UCC designation for congregations that have made a commitment to care for God's creation. This proposed additional designation would add to our designations of being a Just Peace church and an Open and Affirming church.

A cup of caring for God's creation
As a part of our Creation Justice Church journey, we're working on "going green" for our after-church coffee and fellowship time.
Please bring a mug from home. There is a designated place in the Horton Lounge where we will keep them for you. (We also have some coffee mugs available in the Horton Lounge.)
Thank you for helping us do our small part to care for God's creation!

St. James UCC now employs a janitorial service that exclusively uses Green Seal certified environmentally-friendly cleaning products.
We will be taking many actions in our Creation Justice journey. More information will be shared as it becomes available.
