Faith In Action
Ministry Beyond Our Doors
Faith in Action Ministries are ministries that move beyond the doors of St. James, encompassing areas where St. James connects and services our Redding or neighborhood community. Currently, St. James has an extensive list of ministries based on the interests and callings of our faith partners. These programs meet the physical, spiritual, or emotional needs of members of our community, some of whom might not know about the love of Jesus. Please contact the church office to get connected with the leaders of any of the Faith in Action Ministries to get involved or find out more about the ministry.
