"Faith That Works"

The people of St. James are experiencing a faith that works. Our faith has provided us with a sense of purpose for our lives, direction when we are unsure what to do and comfort when tragedy comes.


On Tuesday, May 3rd, St. James United Church of Christ will take part in the nationwide effort to honor the victims of the Holocaust, those who were resisters, and the liberators of the concentration camps by holding a Day of Remembrance ceremony at the church, 135 Myrtle Ave. Havertown, PA, at 7:00 PM. The event coincides with the nation’s annual commemoration of the Holocaust established by Congress.

This ceremony, which is open to the public, will feature art created from photographs taken by the pastor at Dachau Concentration Camp, poetry, music, prayer and reflection and discussion.

St. James UCC Pastor Lynn Lampman: “With the closing and merger of the only synagogue in Havertown, PA we felt it essential that our community have a way of coming together to do this time of remembering. This day is important for not only Jews, but Christians as well, and those of all faiths and no faith. Without remembering, we forget. And on behalf of all humanity there must be a group of people who declare and work towards, “Never again.” It is not enough to curse the darkness of the past. We have to illuminate the future.”

"Draw the Circle Wide"

Worship Series
Easter & Eastertide: March 28 - May 15

The astounding event on that first Easter morning has sent 'ripples that make waves' throughout all of human history.  In this post-resurrection season, we will explore what it meant for the early church to draw the circle wider and wider as they spread the Gospel Good News of liberation from death through Jesus, the Christ.  What could it mean for us to continue to draw the circle wide in order to offer the world a vision of the rippling affects of grace and peace, and reconciliation and joy?
