We are glad that you might consider being to be part of our church family for worship, as Doers of the Word, worshiping God and serving others to build God’s kingdom. We hope you will feel at home at our service and will not hesitate to ask ushers or clergy if you have questions. The service bulletin you receive when you attend includes the material you will need to take part in the liturgy except for the hymns and service music which you will find in the blue Hymnal. The Sunday Chimes that encloses the worship bulletin provides descriptions of upcoming events and ministries of St. James’s, which you are invited to attend or join. We encourage you to recycle the bulletin and take the Sunday Chimes home so you can learn more about our parish life and continue praying for the week.
Children are a blessing and welcome at all of our services. We want them to feel at home, too! Please help them find materials for drawing and coloring in the cabinet on the east side of the narthex (entrance foyer). The nursery for ages 1-3 is on the first floor of Gibson Hall, which is connected to the sanctuary. Bathrooms are underneath the sanctuary.
The Holy Eucharist (communion) is the central act of worship at most of our services. In the Episcopal tradition, those who receive the sacrament of Holy Eucharist have already been baptized in a Christian denomination; however, we invite all to come forward and participate. An usher will direct you to the altar at the appropriate time. You may kneel or stand. You may receive the bread and wine separately, or intinct (dip) the wafer into the chalice of wine. Please tell the priest if you need a gluten-free wafer. If you do not want to receive communion, we hope you will come forward to the altar and cross your arms over your chest, that we might share a prayer with you.
