St. James' Episcopal Church - Potomac 301-762-8040

Fellowship and Membership

During our time of social distancing, St. James’ continues to gather virtually or outdoors for discussion, Bible study, and fellowship.

Information on ways to connect is shared regularly in the weekly email sent on Thursdays to the parish, and posted on our FaceBook page. To receive our emails, please contact us here.

St. James’ prides itself on its welcoming nature. Our membership and fellowship commissions help us connect with newcomers and each other.

The Membership and Fellowship Commission is committed to deepening engagement at St. James’, and to occasionally just throw a good party! From creating welcome gift bags for visitors to name tags, planning hayrides and bonfires, hosting ice cream socials and newcomers’ gatherings, we’re hard at work behind the scenes helping to enrich our parish lives. And we have a great time doing it! 

People of all ages and life stages are welcome and encouraged to get in on the fun. Have an idea you’d like to see us try? New here and not sure what the next step is? Get in touch and we’ll go from there. We hope to hear from you or see you soon!

The Men’s Breakfast and Bible Study is another opportunity to connect for fellowship, breakfast, bible study and prayer every Wednesday morning. Currently the men’s breakfast group gathers virtually at 7:30 a.m., often joined by members of other congregations. They discuss different issues of interest and share ideas during this time. All men of the parish and friends are invited to join the group.
