To all who need a church home – to all who mourn and want comfort – to all who are lonely and want companionship – to all who pray and to all who do not – to all who sin and need a savior, this church opens wide the door, and in the name of Jesus, says, Welcome!
Our vision for St. James Parish is to be a loving family, embracing all people, expressing the love of Jesus Christ and carrying out His ministry in our community of faith and the community in which we live.
We celebrate our past, embrace the present and look forward to an exciting and blessed future. As a loving parish that is not content to remain within the comfort and safety of its historic walls, we seek to journey out into the diverse community and world sharing our blessings, talent and most importantly, the saving message of Jesus Christ.

BACK TO SCHOOL DRIVE UPDATE
Through the generosity of our St. James family this year’s Back to School Drive brought in over $600 in cash, and several loads of supplies. The cash allowed several items to be ordered that were chosen by Jackie Ashley, Lake County Schools Social Worker. They consisted of 120 backpacks, 40 thumb drives and 19 headphones. Jackie deeply appreciates all that St. James parishioners have done to support our local students. Our thanks to Peg Hopper for heading this drive.
