Worship at St. James
Every day as we walk through our lives we are being deeply formed by our world. Media, marketing, and many other forces have a significant impact in shaping our vision and values. When we gather for Christian worship, it gives us an opportunity to re-frame our vision and reform our hearts into the kinds of people Jesus Christ would have us to be. We see our weekend worship gathering as counter vision and counter formation to renew our minds and hearts for the kingdom of God.
We want to be the church, rather than simply attend it. Our elements of worship and church life reflect this desire. Whether we are learning together, praising our God together, serving in the music ministry, playing together, or ministering to others through a variety of outreaches, our goal is to glorify our great God!
Come as you are. Our concern is not your dress, but that you are seeking to experience relationship with Jesus the Christ. When you come, expect to experience genuine fellowship with friendly people, God-honoring worship, and teaching of the Word. Bring the whole family, as *children are welcome and encouraged to participate in worship with the family.
*For little ones who are not quite yet able to participate in the family worship service, a “Cry Nursery” is available at the back of the sanctuary, where parents may take their infants and small children if the need arises. This “Cry Nursery” is equipped with sound proof glass and speakers, allowing the parents to continue to participate in worship, while staying with their children.
