Welcome Visitors & Newcomers

First, thank you for worshipping with us! We know visiting for the first time can be daunting and worship in the Episcopal Church can be unfamiliar to some. It takes some courage to attend that first time. We are grateful for your presence, whether you are passing through town on vacation, visiting family, or looking for a spiritual home. We trust God will draw near to you as you draw near to God.

Upcoming Events

Adult Formation: God in the Digital Age

Sundays, July 14 – Aug. 11 at 9 a.m. in the Trinity Room

 What does it mean to be a Christian in the midst of social media, the 24-hour news cycle, online church communication, and the ever-evolving capacity for scams, AI fakes, and various threats? Is the digital world a mystery for you? It seems not a month goes by that a fake email or text goes out, almost like we’re in an unfortunate golden age of fraud! We’ll spend the rest of the summer orienting ourselves to finding God and avoiding or resisting evil online and in the digital world. We’ll explore how to spot a scam or a fake, how to critically analyze news, how to use social media with the baptismal covenant in mind, how to connect with St. James through Realm and online, and how to be human in the digital world of 1s and 0s.
