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.

Centering Prayer Group and Study
Nov 20 @ 5:30 pm – 6:20 pm

Centering Prayer is a method of meditation used by Christians placing a strong emphasis on interior silence. The modern Centering Prayer movement in Christianity can be traced to several books published by three Trappist monks of St. Joseph’s Abbey in Spencer, Massachusetts in the 1970s: Fr. William Meninger, Fr. M. Basil Pennington and Abbot Thomas Keating.[1] The name was taken from Thomas Merton’s description of contemplative prayer (a much older and more traditional practice) as prayer that is “centered entirely on the presence of God”.[2] In his book Contemplative Prayer, Merton writes ““Monastic prayer begins not so much with “considerations” as with a “return to the heart,” finding one’s deepest center, awakening the profound depths of our being”.

The creators of the Centering Prayer movement claim to trace their roots to the contemplative prayer of the Desert Fathers of early Christian monasticism, to the Lectio Divina tradition of Benedictine monasticism, and to works like The Cloud of Unknowing and the writings of St. Teresa of Avila and St. John of the Cross. Advocates of Centering Prayer say it does not replace other prayer but encourages silence and deeper connection to God.[3] Also advocates of Centering Prayer say it helps people be more present and open to God.[4] Father Thomas Keating has promoted both Lectio Divina and Centering Prayer.
