For Lutherans, worship is an ever-changing and growing experience.
Central to everything we do, worship unites us in celebration, engages us in thoughtful dialogue and helps us grow in faith. At St. James Lutheran Church, we celebrate Word and Sacrament using traditional forms with new vigor to reach new generations of believers. A rich variety of music supports and inspires our worship. Come to worship God here and expect to encounter the Holy Spirit in this community of faith. Worship services are open to all, and we welcome you to worship at any time.
Holy Communion is integral to our worship services. We celebrate the Eucharist at every worship service, and we welcome all to come to the Communion Table.

Sundays, 8:15 a.m. and 10:45 a.m.
