"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.

Our current sermon series is Living the Life!

As part of our year-long sermon series: "I Am/We Are Christian: Living the Life" we are doing a 10 part series on "Resilience".  This series is based on scientific research on what are the 10 factors most found in people who showed great resiliency in the face of tragedy, crisis, trauma and extreme stress.  Each week we will explore one of the factors.  In addition, we will explore how these resiliency factors can become part of our lives through the resources offered to us by faith and in the life of Jesus.
