Worship

Regular Sunday Service Times

What To Expect On Sunday Morning

Sunday morning worship is our time to gather as a Christian community to be uplifted and fed by God. Through the sharing of our faith story from Holy Scripture, relevant and meaningful preaching, communal prayer and inspiring hymns and the sacrament of bread and wine, we are transformed and energized to go out and share God's love with with the world. All members of the community are encouraged to share their gifts during worship and at other times to build up the Body of Christ in this place. We hope you will consider sharing your gifts at St. James.

Participation

Chancel Guild

This group helps maintain and care for everything related to the Altar such as communion vessels, the linen, liturgical vestments, etc. They take turns to come on Saturday morning and prepare for the next day’s services at the church. They also decorate the church for Christmas, Easter, Thanksgiving, weddings and other special occasions.

Chalice Administrators

This is a group of lay people who take turns to assist the clergy at communion by serving the chalice. Three people assist each Sunday.

 Greeters

They greet everyone and distribute bulletins at the church doors on Sunday Morning and ensure visitors are shown around the church and introduced to others.

Choir

St. James has a very active choir led by Laura Lavoy. They love to sing and enjoy meeting for practices once a week. They lead the congregation during the Service.

Servers

We have a number of young people who serve at the altar and assist the priest during worship. Children are usually invited to join the servers’ group when they get to be around eight years old

Readers

We have a number of readers who are on a roster and take turns to read the Scripture Lessons and lead the congregational prayers at the Sunday Services.

Coffee Hour

Parish Families sign up to host the Coffee Hour after the Services on Sundays. They prepare and serve coffee, tea, juice, and cookies provided by the Church. Coffee Hour offers a great opportunity for people to get to know each other and for newcomers to become acquainted with the Parish Family.
