This year, St. James’ wants to remind everyone of the importance of staying connected spiritually.  Over the past few years now, the ongoing stress and uncertainty of the world has taken a toll on everyone.  Staying grounded spiritually can help us all remember to put faith in God that He will hold our anxieties.  
From the very beginning of the pandemic, St. James’ responded by putting worship, music, and programming online to be easily accessed by most.  Additionally, a strong and consistent effort to keep our homebound parishioners connected was implemented.  Every day, St. James’ clergy & staff look for resources to offer parishioners that strengthen faith and fill the daily need to feel God’s love & presence.  During the month of October, parishioners will share their personal stories of what tools or items are in their spiritual suitcases. These items could be simple things like a Bible, Devotional book, favorite movie, meditation practice, or even Worship with St. James’.

  • Sunday Worship 7:30/9am/10:45am
