Grant, we beseech you, Almighty God, that the words which we have heard this day with our outward ears, may, through your grace, be so grafted inwardly in our hearts, that they may bring forth in us the fruit of good living, to the honor and praise of your Name; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.-BCP p835

Not sure what to during worship with us? Click on the open door for a good discussion of worship in the Episcopal Church. It's easier than you think....
Whatever your religious background and however you have come to be here, welcome to St. James Episcopal Church!

In the pew you will find two books, which we use in our worship: the red Book of Common Prayer (referred to as BCP in the bulletin) and the blue Hymnal (all music notation preceded by an “S” can be found in the front section).  In this bulletin you will find the service outline and the page references to those two books. If you find it difficult to follow the service at first, please feel free to ask someone near you for assistance. After a few services, it will become easier. Standing, sitting, or kneeling for various parts of the service is a matter only of custom, and you should feel free to assume whatever posture is most helpful to you.

All baptized Christians are welcome to receive Holy Communion. At the time of communion, please come to the Altar rail and stand or kneel. First, the bread will be placed in your outstretched hands; when the chalice of wine comes, you may drink directly from it or dip the bread in it. If you prefer not to receive communion, but would like to receive a blessing, please signal your desire by crossing your arms across your chest. 

We are delighted that you are thinking about joining us for worship. Please join us after the service for a little fellowship so we can get to know you better. 

We use three Rites for Holy Eucharist at St James. Why so many, and which would appeal to you? Click here for some thoughts.... Read More

Morning Prayer Ad

St James church is a sacred space. It is a place to come, sit, and rest quietly in the presence of God. Why not take a break for contemplative prayer during the late-morning? "...in returning and rest we shall be saved, in quietness and confidence shall be our strength...."
