"Come and See" said Jesus in John 1:39.

We invite you to come and see what St. James Lutheran has to offer. We offer you many opportunities to find the comfort and rest of knowing Jesus Christ as our Lord. Through our opportunities for worship, Christian education, fellowship and many other activities plus our community support and outreach, we hope you will find what you have been searching for. So, come and see. We are here to welcome you.
