“…love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength.”
Mark 12:30

The life of a Christian is one of ever deepening conversion.  God’s love for us is deep, and that depth is unfathomable.  We are called to seek after God, and we do this through prayer, worship, praise, repentance, and education.  No part of the human person – be it mind, body, heart, or spirit – remains untouched by God.

As Christians, we at St. James’ take great joy in learning more about God and the work of God in the world.  Here are some ways you can join us as we learn more about God’s love for us and presence in the world. 

Prayer Breakfast

Each Wednesday morning, starting at 8:00 a.m., we gather for Morning Prayer and to Bible study.  Our focus tends to be the daily reading, but we also focus on feasts and fasts throughout the year.

Beginner’s Biblical Greek

A small group gathers together each Thursday afternoon to read the New Testament in the original Greek.  Most of us are just beginning, and we use inter-linear texts.  All are welcome, no matter what your reading level is.  We begin at 2:00 p.m. and tend to finish up at 3:00.

Book Club

Our book club meets on the first Saturday of each month from 11:00 to noon. All meetings are open to the community, and anyone can join in, even if you haven’t read the book.

Our schedule of books ahead is:

Emmaus Meals

Most Wednesdays, we gather at in the evening, first to break bread with one another, then to participate in a variety of teaching series. These series are provided by our priest and other members of the community.  Topics range from studies on the sacraments to labyrinths, from centering prayer to church history.  All are welcome at these meals, whatever your creed, interest, or affiliation!

Our dinners begin at 5:00 p.m., and our education begins at 6:00.  If you want to come to one and not the other, feel free!

Emmaus Meals are on a short hiatus but will return again during Epiphany season, 2020!

Here are some examples of what we’ve studied in the past:
