Starting the evening of September 10, St. James’s Episcopal Church will offer our regular semesters of Wednesday night programs, which all begin with an Evening Prayer service in the Chapel at 5:30 p.m.. This is followed by our famous Wednesday night dinners, prepared by our finest cooking teams and served from 6:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. Dinner and all programs are held in the Michaux House, our primary education and meeting space on the corner of Birch and West Franklin Streets.
Following dinner, we offer two tracks for parishioners and anyone who is interested in learning more about the Episcopal Church and our faith and traditions.
Wednesdays 7:00 to 8:00 p.m., Michaux House, Room 304

Are you looking to join the church, learn what it means to be an Episcopalian, or be baptized or confirmed as an adult? If so, you are invited to join this class, which is designed to provide a grounding in the three areas of Christian discipleship: worship, study, and service. It includes introductory material in the areas of theology, the Bible, church history, The Book of Common Prayer, the creeds, liturgy, and prayer. This class is also the required preparation for adults seeking baptism or confirmation and is recommended for those from other denominations who would like to join the Episcopal Church. The clergy will present a topical lecture each week, followed by small group work in which the night’s topic is discussed and the Bible is studied. The class convenes in two sessions in the fall and spring. Participants who attend either session may be baptized, confirmed, reaffirmed or received into the Episcopal Church when the bishop visits in the spring.
