First of all, we believe that everyone who attends worship services at St. James, whether you’re a first-time guest or you’ve been around here for years, should be able to come with the expectation of meeting with God. That applies to those who are on top of the world and to those who feel like they’ve hit rock bottom: the Lord wants to meet with you. So, our worship services are designed to facilitate those encounters—meeting with each other, and meeting with God. You will hear good news proclaimed to you each week.
Not everyone worships in the same style. Our 8:30 service, for instance, is a more traditional worship service, while our 11:00 service incorporates both traditional and contemporary worship styles. It's not unusual at our later service to have traditional hymns as well as a jazz ensemble accompanying our Praise Team. Regardless of the style, our desire is to lift up Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.
