About Us

The mission and ministry of St. James Lutheran Church begin with God. The church exists not as a human invention, but because God calls it into being. Our starting point is not what we want, but what God wants. Therefore we are always attentive to God, listening to where and how God is calling us. Each week begins with worship–time devoted to looking beyond our wants and wishes to what God is saying to us.
