We are Christ’s people, and this is Christ’s house with its doors wide open. If you are passing through, Godspeed. If you are looking for a worship home, stay with us. We invite guests to join us, but most of all, to return often.
St. James Lutheran is an ELCA Congregation
The Evangelical Lutheran Church of America (ELCA) is one of the largest Christian denominations in the United States. “The ELCA confesses the Triune God — Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We proclaim Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. In our preaching and teaching the ELCA trusts the Gospel as the power of God for the salvation of all who believe.”
St. James has been blessed through the dedicated leadership of its ministry team.

The Word of the Lord.
Thanks be to God!
for I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me
‘…you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength…. You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.
Do not worry about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.
