St. James Lutheran Church


St. James is a congregation of the ELCA. We are here to share God’s love and grace with the world around us. We ground our life in worship. Services are Sunday morning at 9:00 am. Communion is celebrated weekly. We invite you to grow in faith with us. Children’s Sunday school is the second Sunday of the month, (during the school year) immediately following worship. Check out the calendar for times on Adult Bible Study. Our food pantry is open on Wednesdays, from 6:00-8:00 pm and on Thursdays from 9:00-11:00 am. Our office is open Monday-Friday from 9:00 am-1:00 pm.


What to expect: We come together to worship God, hear God’s word, and share in God’s holy meal. All are welcome at the communion table. Sunday morning worship is relaxed and clothing is casual. It includes hymns, communion and a short children’s time. Coffee is shared before the service. It is ready and waiting on the counter with mugs when you come in. We have accessible restrooms on the same floor as the sanctuary. Parking is abundant, with handicap parking available. There is a children’s table with toys in the sanctuary.
