"Saint James has been my home for 40 years, through Baptisms, Weddings, Funerals...support through highs and lows. It is a source of quiet worship, loving care and nurture, and great friends."
"I love the liturgy and our music takes me to great places, either in my past or just happily in the present. My spiritual home is definitely St James’, and will be forever."
"Church attendance for me slows down the pace of life and helps me to focus on the ‘big picture.’ Prayer and gratitude are a practice at St. James’. It is comforting to be in a relationship with like-minded people."
"To me and my family, St. James’ means an accepting and inclusive community that sees the spirit of the Lord in every one of its members. We came to St. James’ because our children found fellowship here, and we did too!"
"For my family, St James’ is much more than a place where we worship. The people of St James’ are an extension of our family. Over the years we have found our faith re-affirmed, enjoyed fellowship and fun times but also, importantly, received caring and assistance when we needed it."
"My early interests were in ensuring that my children had a solid foundation in faith and personal discovery. Today, I have a better sense of myself because of worship, adult education, and the leadership positions I have held."
"St. James’ offers an environment that is welcoming to all and where my family and I can find spiritual sustenance. We were drawn to St. James' healthy mix of both traditional and progressive values. St. James’ also offered us the opportunity to establish deep and meaningful connections to our community."
"Being a part of St. James’ is the first time I have felt I am really a part of a congregation, and look upon those I have met as extended family. There are so many opportunities to be involved through outreach activities, and to make a difference locally and globally."
