St. James United Church of Christ
In February 2014, the congregation at St. James voted unanimously to become an Open and Affirming Congregation. The St. James ONA Statement begins:
The people of St. James United Church of Christ in Havertown, Pennsylvania, affirm our belief that every person has dignity and worth and is a beloved child of God..... We welcome all lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender individuals and condemn all acts of violence and discrimination against people because of their sexual orientation or gender identification...

This series focuses on Holy Communion and the biblical theme of shared meals. When we break bread together, whether at the family dinner table or at the Lord’s table, we share in the fellowship and love with God and with one another. Over these four weeks, we move from setting the table, to inviting guests, blessing the meal, and extending the table.
“The Bread that we break is a communion (koinonia) with the body of Christ. The fact
that there is only one loaf means that, though there are many of us, we form a
single body, because we all have a share in this one loaf.” (1 Corinthians 10:16-17)
