About St. James'

We are diverse community of friends and neighbors, old and young, long-term members and newcomers. Our present and future is based on our own efforts to work together for our neighbors, welcoming and accepting all people. Many of us have come to St. James' as tourists or nomads and by welcoming St. James' into our hearts, are now pilgrims, sharing our gifts and talents to make the love of God and Jesus Christ known to any seeking them.
Not all of us were raised in the Episcopal tradition. We have, however, found a home in St. James', a place where all are welcome to share in God's grace. We are able to find a niche here, and contribute our gifts as we are willing and able. Our many ministries speak to the varied display of members: children and elders, cooks and gardeners and knitters, caregivers and helpers, listeners and speakers, lifelong students and teachers and searchers. We have found that all of us have gifts to share; participating in the life of this parish helps us to discern what those gifts might be, and how to put them to the best use God has intended.
Our worship services and music programs, from traditional and contemporary, shape our beliefs and allow us to give thanks for the blessings we receive through prayer, song and sacrament. Christian formation and education provides the continual, lifelong process of deepening our understanding of our own faith. We use our personal testimonies to share how own relationships with God have changed and grown. We strive to make clear the work of our parish, the Episcopal Church, and the gospel, to anyone who is interested. The beauty reflected throughout our campus is a testament to the abundance of God's love.
We invite you to join us in whatever degree or capacity you able: we are an inclusive, multi-cultural congregation which welcomes all seekers and people of good will.
