A Message from Pam Page

There are many ways you can give to St. James during this unprecedented time.

We have a link to Vanco Services available on our website. This is the company that handles our Simply Giving.  Simply Giving can be set up for automatic giving for one month, two months or any given period so we can add a stop date if needed. You can give through an ACH payment which will deduct your contribution out of a checking or savings account. You can contact me for more information and to set this up. There is also a giving app, Give+, from Vanco and instructions for that are also on the church website giving page
We also have Pay Pal which allows you to contribute through your own Pay Pal account which would come out of your account or checking account - which ever you have set up with Pay Pal.
Contributions of written checks will always be accepted by mailing them to the church office. Although our activities may be curtailed for a time, our fixed expenses for our ministries, staffing, and building operations continue. Thank you for your continued support!
