1 cross + 3 nails = 4given

We fix our problems with duct tape; Jesus used nails.

Lent is preparation for the SONrise.

It must have been a wild ride to travel with Jesus from the shores of Lake Galilee to be present for most every significant event in His ministry. The amazing teaching, the astounding miracles, and standing up to the powerful on behalf of the oppressed. Simon, Andrew, James, and John, the four fishermen got everything they bargained for and more. In the words of a hymn, the peace of God filled their hearts "brimful and broke them too." Jesus’ followers died to everything they had been or wanted to be in order to be born anew as apostles—the ones Jesus sent out into the world with the Good News of the Kingdom of God.

There are those who claim they can worship at home. But worship is not the sole reason we are commanded to meet together. On the surface it would seem that anything we can do at church, we can do just as well at home. So why are we commanded to meet? Why go to church? We are surrounded by forces that work to blow us off course. Sheer individual commitment alone is not enough to keep us in line. When we share in God’s grace through fellowship, we are spurred on to faithfulness!

Welcome Experience 

Mary and Nancy Radonovich

Our first impression was that St. James was a beautiful, old church.  Not like the churches we saw in England, very old and very formal.  We soon realized that the people of St. James are very modern, friendly and outgoing.  We have been welcomed at every church function that we have attended. 

We love the services and we especially loved the Christmas program.  We try to get to the Wednesday Healing Services.  We have talked about it being like the ancient worship services; a small group of people in a small room that is hidden, gathered to praise God.

We thank you Father Fred and the congregation for being so welcoming and so supportive.
