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.
"The Journey: Walking to Bethlehem"
November 29 - December 27, 2015
"Joseph also went from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to the city of David called Bethlehem, because he was descended from the house and family of David. He went to be registered with Mary, to whom he was engaged."
As a community we will take “The Journey” with Mary, Joseph, Elizabeth, the shepherds and wise ones in order to understand more about the historical and geographical aspects of the story and how this can inspire us to our own questions about our life journeys. The congregation will deepen their understanding of the context of the story of the birth of Christ while deepening their own spiritual quest for new life in Christ.
