St. James Lutheran Church is a part of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America.  ELCA congregations are centers for evangelical mission, where people of faith celebrate, learn and connect with one another and others around the world through service and weekly worship. We are a church that belongs to Christ. We are the church that shares a living, daring confidence in God’s grace. For us as the ELCA, this faith comes through the good news of Jesus Christ and gives us the freedom and the courage to wonder, discover and boldly participate in what God is up to in the world.

BE inspired

Our Practice of Faith is 

     to live among God's faithful people,

     to hear the word of God and share in the Lord's supper,

     to proclaim the good news of God in Christ through word and deed,

     to serve all people, following the example of Jesus, and to

     to strive for justice and peace in all the earth.  (ELW, p. 236)
