Sunday Worship

navesideview1

Whether you are a believer, seeker, or skeptic, no matter where you find yourself on your spiritual journey you are welcome at St. James. Sunday worship at St. James follows the traditions and practice of the Episcopal Church centered on the Sacrament of Holy Communion, also known as the Eucharist or the Lord’s Supper. All who are drawn to Christ are welcome to share in the bread and wine, or may choose to receive a blessing instead.

Parking is available on Sundays and Select Holidays at St. Anne's Home, 300 Lake St. Please only park in one of the spots on the East end of the lot (near the entrance closest to 3rd Avenue).

8:00 a.m. Holy Eucharist

This is a simple, contemplative service, without music, for those who prefer a more intimate gathering with space for silent reflection. We gather in the parish hall following worship for a light breakfast and lively discussion of the scripture readings and sermon. It is a safe space to nurture and challenge one another as we grow in faith together.

10:00 a.m. Choral Eucharist

The principal Sunday worship service includes hymns, choral anthems, and a joyful blend of ancient tradition and contemporary reflection relating Christian faith to everyday life. The music reflects diverse genres and cultures. The preaching is intelligent and relevant. The style of worship is heartfelt, participatory, and reverent without being stuffy. 

On the first Sunday of the month, we celebrate a Community Eucharist that is more accessible for families with children: the music, readings, and sermon are designed to engage younger members of the community, while still providing spiritual nourishment to people of all ages. Nursery care is always available for infants and toddlers; during the school year, Christian education is offered during the Liturgy of the Word for children and youth, who then join us for Holy Communion.

A festive coffee hour follows worship so we can greet you in person and get to know you better.
