Mission & Values

Almighty and eternal God, so draw our hearts to you, so guide our minds, so fill our imaginations, so control our wills, that we may be wholly yours, utterly dedicated to you; and then use us, we pray, as you will, and always to your glory and welfare of your people, through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Amen.

Our Mission

Our mission is to grow in faith, serve others through God’s love, while celebrating our traditions and embracing the future.


At St. James you will find a joyful and reverent celebration in the Episcopal tradition with Christ-centered liturgy and music.


We provide Christian education throughout the week and on Sundays for all ages, children through adults, allowing us all to deepen our understanding of God’s word and actions in history and in our lives. Our day school—infants through pre-K—provides an exemplary, nurturing Christian learning environment.


Adults, youth and children give of their time talents and treasure to minister to those in need locally, nationally and internationally.


We love and care for one another, and believe that strong community makes us healthier members of the body of Christ. Building fellowship allows us to spread the love of God through music, pastoral care and numerous organized ministries.


Food, fun and fellowship are at the heart of who we are and how we celebrate the joy of our life together in Christ. People of all ages and walks of life are welcome to come, to visit, to build relationships
