you are welcome here

St. James’ Episcopal Church, Potomac

Our hearts are open to everyone

We are a vibrant, welcoming congregation committed to sharing the joyful warmth of Christ’s love. We worship together, learn together, and serve together. Sunday worship service times are 8:00 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. Please join us! Our hearts and doors are open to you.


Please join us for worship at 8:00 a.m. or 10:30 a.m. any Sunday. Then drop by our Parish Hall (the building next door to the church) for coffee, doughnuts, and friendly conversation.

Sunday School

Welcome! We love making friends, reading The Story, and learning about God’s love for us. Join us downstairs during the 10:30 service. (Children rejoin their families for communion.)
