Who We Are

St. James is an Anglican Church and part of the Anglican Church in North America. Anglicanism is one way of being a Christian. It is an ancient way of living out a Christian faith that stresses the authority of Scripture, the best use of our intellect, and an openness to unexpected questions. Anglicanism brings together ancient patterns of Christian living and worship with the challenges we all face in a modern world.

Our Services

What are services like?
Anglican worship follows an ancient pattern and may have a traditional or contemporary expression. We have two services at St James. Our 9 am service is traditional and our 10:30 is contemporary. Both follow the ancient pattern that would have been recognizable by a first century Christian. We love kids, and children are always welcome to stay with their parents throughout the service. We do have a staffed nursery at both services. The Nursery is located right next to our worship space. We also have Sunday School during the first half of our second service. We strive to be "kid friendly".

What is the community like?
Friendly, caring, involved,

What if I'm not a Christian?
Opening our hearts and minds to God is a big deal. Some people find it easy to make this decision. Other people need more information before they feel ready to take this step. At St. James we recognize that every person's journey is unique. If you want to learn more about God we want you to know that you are welcome to come hang out with us and explore the possibility of a life with God. We hope you will visit us on a Sunday, and look forward to meeting you. We understand that visiting a church for the first time can be anxious moment. We promise that we will not make a fuss over you and try to make your visit an enjoyable and memorable occasion.
