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.
"All My Days: A Summer of Prayer" Sermon Series:
Using prayer beads has been a spiritual practice for most of the major religions in the world.
Each week, we will deal with something which we can include in our times of prayer utilizing a set of prayer beads which we have made to help us focus in prayer. If you miss a week or two, you can access those sermons by going to the tab "Sermons" on this website's homepage. Even better yet, if you are nearby, join us on Sunday at 10:30 AM for our service of worship, where the following messages will be shared:
