Faith in Action

St. James’ has had a longstanding relationship with Faith In Action (FIA), a social services agency based in Chelsea and Dexter. We regularly donate items for their food pantry and to their annual programs that support families at the beginning of the school year, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. Members of our congregation also volunteer at their food pantry in Dexter. We routinely look for opportunities to support their mission of providing essential support to alleviate the effects of hunger and poverty in our community.

Little Free Library and Little Free Pantry

With funds from the Diocese, we have erected a Little Free Library and Little Free Pantry on the front lawn of the church.  Members of the community can help themselves to the books and food items in the pantries.  They can also contribute.

Church at the Crossroads, Detroit

Our latest outreach partnership is with Church at the Crossroads in Detroit. We participated in their summer lunch program in 2023, and will be participating again in 2024. For more information on Church at at the Crossroads, click on the link below.
