Saint James Episcopal Church

Vocatus atque non vocatus, Deus aderit


We are a small, inclusive Episcopal Church that hosts a broad-based Spiritual Center for the community.
We seek new ways to relate with and serve God in this place and celebrate the fullness of life in each individual.

Given the exceptional shelter-in-place situation, we are delivering a pre-recorded Sunday service. The above link will be active after 10 am.

Read or hear Father Jeff’s sermons connecting our traditional faith with the world we live in, seeking wisdom and love for day to day life, and life beyond the day to day.

Speaking from her home via Zoom, Bishop Lucinda Ashby discusses how to carry on our pilgrimage during a pandemic, meeting virtually with clergy, and plans for an online Easter service. “It is a time of gift and a time of challenge … we weren’t trained for this, but we are equipped for it. Because we have this single thought: we love our neighbor and we love God.
