Worship Style Options
We offer a variety of Sunday morning worship styles and times for you at two locations.
- At St. James East we offer traditional worship services at both 8:15 and 9:45 a.m. These services are in English and feature our organist/pianist, chancel choir, and the great hymns of the faith. We've added an Hispanic worship srevice at 11:30 a.m. This Spanish speaking service is filled with great songs, fellowship, and preaching.
- At St. James West we offer contemporary worship services at both 9:30 and 11:00 a.m. These English speaking services are led by a praise team and we sing contemporary Christian music with some traditional hymns arranged for the band. The use of a projector and screen allows us to use much multi-media in the services.
Child care is offered at all five worship services.
All Are Welcome Here
At St. James we are large enough to have just about something for everyone but small enough that you will feel part of a warm family of God. Check out our pages on Children’s Ministry, Youth Ministry, Young Adult Ministry, Women’s Ministry, and Men’s Ministry
