United Church Women (UCW)

The UCW’s mission is to love God; foster Christian commitment, faithfulness, and spirituality; and promote respect and love for all God’s creation.


Any woman “willing to contribute her prayers, gifts, and services for the work of the Church” may join the United Church Women (UCW). Along with providing important networking and social bonding opportunities, the UCW has led discussions on, for example, feminism and restorative justice.

Activities of the St James UCW include: organizing the Old Stump Frolic and the Holly Tea & Sale, packing gift bags for shut-ins at Christmas, arranging hospitality at funeral receptions, and supporting causes such as the Benevolent Fund through fundraising efforts.

New members are always welcome.


The Prayer Shawl Ministry gathers monthly to knit warm shawls for members of the community who are in need of emotional and spiritual support during times of personal tragedy and crisis. New knitters welcome.


The Prayer Circle Ministry gathers to share their thoughts and prayers for those members of the congregation in need of support. If you would like your name added to the list of those for whom the circle prays, please contact  Patsy at 902-863-2001
