Thanks so much for visiting St. James’ Episcopal Church online. We hope you’ll soon visit us in person as well. Feel free to keep poking around on our website. If you have any questions, give us a call at (541) 396-2322 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
St. James’ is a community of worshipping Christians. We pray with one another, study our history and our Scripture, ask questions and seek answers, and (most of all) live a life devoted to Christ. All are welcome to join us, whether you’re just passing through, looking for a church home, or are somewhere in between.
Weekly Services at St. James
Holy Eucharist – Sundays, 9:30 a.m.
Sunday morning is our principle time of worship. At 9:30, we gather in the sanctuary for the liturgy of the Holy Eucharist. We use Rite II from the Book of Common Prayer, and we sing hymns accompanied by the organ. Children of all ages are welcome and have the option to attend Children’s Church during the sermon.
Prayer Breakfast and Bible Study – Wednesdays, 8:00 a.m.
Wednesday mornings we gather to break bread and break open Scripture together. We pray Morning Prayer, Rite II, from the Book of Common Prayer. Then, instead of a sermon, we look closely at one passage in the Bible. A relaxed time for worship, fellowship, and good food.
Healing Eucharist – Thursdays, Noon
Our Thursday worship is a healing service following Rite I in the Book of Common Prayer. This service is more quiet and contemplative, and many come with a particular grief or to pray for someone they know who is sick. For those who wish, we also offer the sacrament of healing with oil and the laying on of hands.
Emmaus Dinners – Wednesday at 6:00 p.m. throughout the year
Most Wednesday we gather at 6:00 p.m. to have dinner and fellowship together, as well as to learn a bit more about our Christian history and Scriptures. Topics include Episcopal history, Christian authors and artists, the labyrinth in contemplation, Christian mission in the world, and specific books of the Bible. Check out our teaching schedule for specific times and topics.
