"...it is now the moment for you to wake from sleep." -- Romans 13:11
We will spend the first 11 weeks of 2020 examining the contents of the Bible by exploring the consistent themes present in both the Old and New Testaments. This series is a great way for exploring the major threads of our faith. Hope you will join us on Sundays at 10:30 AM or read them online on the Sundays you cannot be with us.
In February 2014, the congregation at St. James voted unanimously to become an Open and Affirming Congregation. The St. James ONA Statement begins:
