During the Fall and Winter months, the St. James community gathers on Wednesday evenings for a meal, fellowship and study opportunities.

Our first TGIW meal for the winter/spring semester will be served on January 17th. Make a reservation below and we will save a place at the table for you!


Family Meal begins serving at 5:15 pm


Meals are $5 per person or $15 per family. Children 5 & under are free. The proceeds from the meal go to the ministry group who prepared that night’s meal.
