St. James’ has a long tradition of offering a wide variety of worship opportunities to meet the spiritual needs of our diverse and growing congregation. All our Sunday services offer Holy Communion, and all baptized Christians are welcome to receive communion from our altar regardless of denomination or previous affiliation.
During the summer, we combine our 9:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. services into a single 9:30 a.m. service.
7:45 a.m. Holy Eucharist, Rite I
This service is for those who like to worship early and simply. A said service that uses the beautiful Elizabethan English of the Rite I Eucharist and makes the most of the powerful liturgy of the Anglican tradition, this service attracts a loyal band of worshipers who constitute an important and vital part of the St. James’ family.
9:30 a.m. Holy Eucharist, Rite II
This traditional Episcopal service featuring a festival Eucharist, and beautiful organ music. It offers experiences for the young, and the young at heart. This moving, popular service is rich with all the ceremony so often associated with the liturgy of the Episcopal Church.
10:30 a.m. Coffee Hour and Fellowship
The brief time after the last service of the day is held in Bartholomew Hall, just down the hall from the sanctuary. Here you find the center of our fellowship activity. During coffee hour you will find hot coffee (regular and decafe), an assortment of hot teas, and lemonade or juice. The variety of nibbles will change from week to week, but tends to include some baked goods and fruit. It’s a time for good friends and visitors to take a break, grab a beverage and catch up with each other before heading out for the day. Don’t be shy; drop in and say “hi”.
An adult-run nursery for infants and toddlers under four years of age is offered from 9:30 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. every Sunday. This allows parents of young children to attend services and Sunday morning events knowing that their children are safe and well attended to.
We are fortunate to have a record of Fr. John’s sermons available online. Please visit the archive and enjoy.
