Bible Study
Nov 17 @ 9:30 am – 10:20 am

Every Sunday we gather to delve deep into the Bible. With the help of several leaders, we study the cultural, theological and exegetical significance of the Biblical texts. We enter into deep discussion and prayer so that we understand the underlying meaning of the Words we read. This study helps us to put the Word of God into our everyday life.

Faith & Reason Class @ St. James Episcopal Church
Nov 17 @ 9:30 am – 10:30 am

Faith is solidified with reason and reason is confirmed by faith. it is a journey towards each other. Some of the most difficult questions in the Bible always will remain hard to crack and difficult to understand. It does not mean we should not ask them and be puzzled by them. We all have questions for which no one has answers for. In the end, we are on a journey. To be able to ask a question is a necessary step to lasting and unchangeable faith.

In this class, anyone can bring up any question that they are struggling with or questions that one thinks are too important to ignore. No question out there is silly or simple. No question is too small or too big to shake up God. God is a big enough to contain the questions that sometimes unsettles us. True faith begins when true and deep questions exhaust.

Holy Eucharist
Nov 17 @ 10:30 am – 12:00 pm

Fellowship around the Table is the core of our worship. We celebrate and empower one another in the presence of Christ at the altar each week. We come together to sing, to pray, to praise and thank God for the blessings of everyday life. We believe in the grace given to each one of us to make a difference in the lives of people we meet. We put our faith through practice at worship.

Holy Eucharist is the celebration of the Last Supper of Jesus with his disciples in the upper room before Jesus was crucified. Jesus returned to the table that was set many times after He was resurrected. We celebrate and commemorate this event each Sunday as was commanded by our Lord Jesus Christ. We come together to utter the words of institution and celebrate the moments of death, and resurrection of Jesus from the dead. We celebrate Holy Eucharist as a Table Fellowship instructed and instituted by Jesus himself.

We follow the Book of Common Prayer as our guide to make this celebration orderly and meaningful. A printed bulletin is provided for our guest to make worship easier to follow. With four readings from the Bible, we read the Holy Scriptures more often and extensively on a regular basis. By celebrating the goodness and kindness of one another at the Table of Jesus in the Holy Eucharist we find ways to serve one another in joy.

Hymns are taken from Theologically sound and spiritually meaningful texts, while we bring in new and contemporary music to add flavor to our unique blend of worship. We take great pride in making our faith journey an integrated life founded on Scriptures, Tradition, and Reason.

We invite you to worship with us. Become part of our community. Call to make an appointment if you would like to learn more about us.

What I think of St. James!

The reason I am at St James is because of the Wednesday morning Healing Service, it is a very powerfull service that is good for people battling an illness,, suffering from job stress, dealing with family issues, also I love the compassionate Clergy here, and supportive fellowship. - Theresa McCullough
When I moved to Missouri from Texas and went to church for the first time, the congregation of St. James was so welcoming and took the time to get to know me. The people here are always willing to lend a helping hand or send love and prayers in times of need and will constantly check on you when there are troubles, and during the great times they will celebrate with you! St. James feels like home from the moment you step in the door, whether it is your first time visiting or if you’re a long time member. - Haley Sanderson
What I love the most about our St. James community is the unique, authentic way in which it embodies the spirit of Christ's love.  You can truly sense the sincere, personal interest for every person from your very first moments here and that's very special.  For me at least, these loving relationships have been a wonderful gateway into the broader life of God's Kingdom, offering support and joy to me as I continue in my personal walk, learning to better care for and serve others, as well as our broader community. Brett Durbin
We both love that St. James offers healing services every Wednesday where we feel the most at ease. There’s more intimacy among a small crowd than a large one. We still like Sunday services though where we can enjoy your sermons and participate in the Holy Eucharist with the whole congregation. TED and Elaine
