St. James is very happy to once again have two Sunday Services.
The Sunday 9am is a shorter and more simple, spoken service. The Sunday 11am service is our more traditional high church liturgy, with singing and organ music, and all the “smells and bells.”
Coffee, snacks, and fellowship between the services!!!
We are an open and welcoming community, called to be saints (Rom 1:7), dedicated to making Jesus Christ known and loved, in the joy and power of the Holy Spirit, to the praise and glory of God the Father. We value in-depth and transformative engagement with the Sacred Scriptures through dynamic study and preaching of the Word of God. We worship with great reverence, in the beauty of holiness (Ps 96:9), with traditional liturgy and aesthetics that values the sacred and the transcendent. The Episcopal Church, of which we are a parish, is sometimes called “the thinking person’s Church” because of how much we value faith-informed reason and learning. Yet we value not just head-learning but rather how it reaches down into our hearts to make us better disciples of the Lord Jesus so we can more effectively be witnesses of his resurrection (Acts 1:8, 2:32). In short, we are “not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth!” (Rom 1:16). And we invite you to “come and see” (John 1:38-39), come and be part of the Way (cf. John 14:6, Acts 9:2, 24:14), The Jesus Movement!, especially in such a non-judgmental, non-exclusionary, and loving community as St. James Clovis.
Celebrating in 2023 our 115th year of ministry in this wonderful local community.

St. James’ Episcopal Church believes:
in God, the Father almighty,
creator of heaven and earth;
We believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord.
He was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit
and born of the Virgin Mary.
He suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died, and was buried.
He descended to the dead.
On the third day he rose again.
He ascended into heaven,
and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
He will come again to judge the living and the dead.
We believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy catholic Church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins
the resurrection of the body,
and the life everlasting. Amen.
