Welcome to Christ Church St. James!

We are seeking to be a caring, compassionate, welcoming family of God in Jesus Christ whose Mission is to:

  • Work through the power of the Holy Spirit to bring new members of all ages and backgrounds to Christ and to His Church.
  • Encourage life-long growth in Christian discipleship.
  • Care for the lonely and marginalized.
  • Provide pastoral care for the church family.
  • Go deeper in our worship of God through both existing and innovative forms of worship.
