"Faith That Works"

The people of St. James are experiencing a faith that works. Our faith has provided us with a sense of purpose for our lives, direction when we are unsure what to do and comfort when tragedy comes.

Sunday worship service is at 10:30 am. All are welcome.

"God is Holding Your Life” 
Worship Series

6 Sundays: October 16 - November 20, 2016

The Psalms are the prayers of the Hebrew people and run the gamut from praise to gut-wrenching pleas for help.  Throughout this poetry runs a thread - we can trust in God to hold our lives.  In this series, we take a break from worry, anxiety, and distress that life can bring and let Holy Assurance hold us fast.

Oct. 16 - "God Is Holding Your Life" (Psalm 121)  Access sermon
Oct. 23 - "Surely Goodness and Mercy" (Psalm 23)
Oct. 30 - "Desert Blues" (Psalm 63)
Nov. 6 - "Into Your Hands" (Psalm 31) and Holy Communion
Nov. 13 - "There is a River" (Psalm 46)
Nov. 20 - "God's Love Endures Forever" (Psalm 136)
