After so many months,
St. James’ is scheduling
in-person worship. 
All NYS & Diocesan Health Guidelines will be followed.  The St. James’ Re-Gathering Task Force has been working hard to create procedures, garner supplies, and establish a plan for worship.
These first in-person worship services will look different than normal.  You can expect:
1. Only 24 people plus Becky may attend.
2. Register online or email to reserve a spot by Thursday prior to Sunday.
3.  Mask must be worn in addition to social distancing, and safety protocols.
4.  Worship will be outside in the fenced area located behind the church.  (if rain-no worship will be conducted that day)
5.  Worship will be 30 minutes, no music or singing and communion will be bread only.
Be sure to review the Safety Plan powerpoint on the right of this page.  
While re-joining this way may feel restrictive, the goal is to take the first step and help those experiencing isolation an opportunity to see their St. James’ family even for a short while.  St. James’ is hopeful that restrictions will ease and more people will be able to gather.  St. James’ is committed to providing online worship each week that is full of the rich liturgy everyone has come to expect complete with music.  Keep watching on both Wednesday at 6pm & Sunday at 9am on Facebook/StJamesSkaneateles.  All worship is saved and stored on this website on Worship Videos page.  
Please only sign up for one Sunday at this time as we want to be able to let all St. James’ family members have a chance to worship together. The current dates are below and more will come in August as soon as the worship schedule is finalized.
If you have questions on registering, please email
