We believe God is calling St. James’ to live out this mission:

“Nourished by Word and Sacrament,

we are sent out to do the work God has given us to do,

to love and serve God

as faithful witnesses of Christ our Lord.”

Serving for Worship

We give glory to God when we worship together to celebrate the liturgy of the Holy Eucharist.


Loving One Another

We love and serve Christ when we love and serve one another.


Reaching Out to Others

We do the work God has given us to do when we engage in hands-on mission and outreach in locally, nationally, and globally.


Caring for  Our Property

We offer adequate and well-maintained space for an ever-growing number of programs as well as anticipate the needs of future generations when we attend to the needs of our historic structures and grounds.


Leading Our Parish

The role of the Vestry is to share with the rector in leadership, decision-making, and discerning a vision for the future as well as setting the tone for leadership that encourages other leaders in our parish to grow and flourish.
