Saint James is a place of extreme welcome and radical hospitality. Among us are people of great heart, including those suffering addiction and homelessness, restless children, honored elders, surly teens, thoughtful seekers, gays and lesbians, forgiven Christians, hopeless sinners, progressives and traditionalists, and so many more. Absolutely everyone is welcome here. You are wanted, expected, and awaited.​

“At Saint James we are truly part of a community, not just attendees at a service. My kids make regular connections with people of all ages and have formed deeper relationships with adults. These are priceless, formative faith experiences for my kids.”

—Jen, mother of 2 middle-schoolers
