St. James United Church of Christ
Relationships form us. One of the most treasured hymns of Christianity in the last century was "Blest Be the Tie That Binds." As we gather for worship in this series, we will be invited to consider how our relationships with the Holy and with each other forms and transforms us. And we will affirm the power of God's presence in our worshiping community to inspire us to "go and do likewise" in relationship to the world.
