St James Presbyterian Church

Who We Are

Dynamic, Relational, Community, Multi-Generational, Missions, Bible, Grace

St. James Presbyterian Church exists to ignite a contagious passion for Jesus Christ, becoming God's instruments of transformation here and around the world.

St. James' core values are being Christ-centered, inwardly strong, and outwardly focused.

St. James is a welcoming friendly church where relationships matter. Authentic relationships throughout the church encourage and inspire one another, whether someone is connecting for the first time or have for many years. Relationships throughout the community of Littleton and the Greater Denver area are also important at St. James. We are committed to partnering with neighbors, neighboring churches, ministries and community organizations to maximize impact. We also partner and are active with ministries around the world.

We have a dynamic multi-generational worship life at St. James. Sunday mornings include two worship services. Our 9:00 am service in our sanctuary is a blended traditional service, meaning you will find hymns, worship songs, some liturgy, in a comfortable setting. Our 10:45 am service in Avery Hall is an informal contemporary service where people feel comfortable whether they have ever been to a church before or not. Both services value excellence to allow people to encounter God in meaningful authentic ways. There is no dress code at St. James. You will find people wearing jeans and casual clothing to suits. The important thing is to come as you are. Dynamic relevant Biblical preaching is a priority in all of our worship experiences.

St. James values living life and doing ministry through the lens of grace. We emphasize the transforming nature of God's love and truth.
