Pre-Advent Retreat

Presiding Bishop Michael Curry has invited the whole church to take up The Way of Love, a “Rule of Life” focused on practices for a Jesus-Centered Life. Facilitated by the Rev. Chris Thompson, St. James’ Episcopal Church in Lewisburg will host a retreat with a focus on developing these faith-based practices in our own lives. Participants will develop a personal “Rule of Life”, and at the conclusion of the retreat there will be a Service of Commitment to the Way of Love.

Life Line Screening

Life Line Screening, a leading provider of community-based preventive health screenings, is pleased to offer a preventive health event at St. James Episcopal Church on 9/28/2018.  Five screenings will be offered that scan for potential health problems related to: blocked arteries which is a leading cause of stroke; abdominal aortic aneurysms which can lead to a ruptured aorta; hardening of the arteries in the legs which is a strong predictor of heart disease; atrial fibrillation or irregular heart beat which is closely tied to stroke risk; and a bone density screening, for men and women, used to assess the risk of osteoporosis. Register for a Wellness Package which includes 4 vascular tests and osteoporosis screening from $149 ($139 with our member discount).  All five screenings take 60-90 minutes to complete.  There are three ways to register for this event and to receive a $10 discount off any package priced above $129, please call toll-free 1-888-653-6441 or visit or text the word circle to 797979
