Serve at Saint James


Please take a moment to browse the many parts to the worship life of Saint James. Maybe your calling is found in one of these ministries.


Worship is at the heart of all that we are and do as members of the Body of Christ. The truth in which we live and the foundation upon which we build is Jesus Christ; in this knowledge we embrace the future with boundless hope.
