Worship the Lutheran Way

led by Bill Crum every Sunday at 10:45 a.m. in room F202 (fellowship hall)

Come learn more about the Divine Service! Throughout the summer we will review our weekly worship practices at St. James. What do we do in the sanctuary and why do we do it that way? Join Vice President Bill Crum in the fellowship hall as your schedule permits this summer to learn (or relearn) Lutheran practices and what those state about our beliefs. Contact Bill with any questions you may have. 

Enduring Faith

led by Grace Gillespie every Sunday at 10:45 a.m. in room P206 (5th grade classroom)

St. James Sunday school uses the Enduring Faith Bible curriculum. As students progress from preschool through adult, they learn all about their Savior Jesus Christ, what their Savior means for them, how to defend their faith, and how to teach the faith to others. The adult Bible class led by Grace Gillespie is also using the Enduring Faith curriculum, written for adults, to study the same lessons as the children and youth. This is an excellent weekly way to connect with all ages around the same Bible story. 

Coffee Club

led by Pastor David French every Thursday at 7:00 a.m. - on hiatus for the summer.

The Thursday morning “Coffee Club” will be resuming our weekly 7:00-7:45 a.m. Bible study. We use an informal format. The first 15 minutes is coffee and a pastry followed by reading a chapter and plenty of discussion. If it works for you, just give us a try!

Men's Bible Breakfast

led by Pastor Jim Barton & Doug Schroeder every Friday at 7:00 a.m.

This group meets on Fridays from 7:00 to 8:00 a.m. at The Downtowner restaurant in Market Square. More men are always welcome!
