Acolytes and Choir ready to Process
Ballantine and Bishop Taylor at
|St. James is a
welcoming and accepting community of faith. We celebrate life's passages
with stimulating worship and music, challenging our intellect and
imagination to discover God through prayer. We are an active, caring
presence in our community and the world. We are called
To give thanks
To reflect, remember, and renew our hearts
To educate ourselves and our children in our beliefs and traditions
To integrate our faith with our daily lives
To grow in love and concern for the world
In addition to Sunday services, there are many other opportunities for worship and education:
Adult Forum - Meets between services on Sunday mornings to discuss various aspects of Christianity and the Bible.
Book Group - Meets several times a month for fellowship and to discuss the book and/or chapter that members have read during the week.
Cursillo - Is a national renewal movement in the Roman Catholic and Episcopal churches. Cursilllo involves a weekend commitment for a "short course" in faith.
Men's Bible Study - Meets weekly to discuss scripture.
