Our Mission and Vision

The Mission of St. James’ is to bring people together to be transformed by and to proclaim Christ’s love through worship, spiritual formation, and service.

The Vision of St. James’ is to be a place where all are welcome, to feel God’s love and share God’s love.

Having been called to this congregation in early 2017, I am impressed with the joy and warmth the people exude, and the many ways this joy of the Spirit shows up in our ministries and our worship.
