St James Episcopal Church, Marshall in southwest Minnesota is a small rural Total Shared Ministry parish, a congregation where everyone in the parish family is given the opportunity to find and do the ministry to which God is calling them. The call to local lay and ordained ministry is led by a team that has been ordained and commissioned to provide leadership that welcomes all to the table.
Our Parish Goal: We have been so excited to be able to complete our sidewalk/ramp and new door that has enabled our 132 year old historic church to be more accessible for those with mobility disabilities and to live into our mission to "Welcome All" to enter our Red Door.
St. James is committed to the Episcopal Church in Minnesota (ECMN)’s Mission in Becoming the Beloved Community to discern God's call in welcoming all and being God’s hearts and hands and love in the world. More information about the Beloved Community and the Way of Love can be accessed at https://creatingbelovedcommunity.org/what-is-beloved-community
Gifts can be made to general support of St. James, to our ECMN Mission Goal “Becoming the Beloved Community” or other gifting, now or throughout the year.
Funds now collected through GiveMn will now aid in maintaining our 132 year old building, our and continuing technology that provides us the ability to continue to stream our services to those who might not be able to attend in the building but can access them on our website at stjamesepiscopalmarshall.com
Donations also will continue to support our ECMN Mission Goal to continue to work to eliminate hunger in our community through regular food donations for our local food shelf and funds to support the Episcopal Church in Minnesota's (ECMN) annual mission goal to become the Beloved Community
"In our time, prophetic voices such as the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and others used the language of Beloved Community to describe the experience of God’s kingdom in our lives today: moments of reconciliation and joy that break in and rebuke our racial and social divisions.
We practice the Way of Love. Through these daily practices, we are continually reminded to turn towards God, dwell in scripture and live a life of service, we are set along the track that leads us towards engaging God’s mission by opening our eyes to God in us, in others, and in the world, and that leads us towards creating beloved community by acting on the movements, call, and promptings of the Holy Spirit." https://creatingbelovedcommunity.org
