St. James is very happy to once again have two Sunday Services.

About Us

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.

Dear Friends,

The month of July is already upon us, hard to believe! Just as July 4th is the year’s major celebration of our wonderful country, July 25th is the major celebration of our wonderful parish!
Thursday, July 25th, is the Feast Day of St James. It is our major annual celebration, our fiesta! Please plan ahead so you can try to be there. We will have an open house from 12noon to 5:30 pm and then a Eucharistic celebration at 6pm. We will have a water slide and fun outdoor games for kids, and we are looking for people to help grill up hot dogs and serve food and drinks. 
Can you please help us on this day? Just as we used to do a major community outreach on Chili Day we are trying to have a major outreach day on our Feast Day, July 25th. But we need help: people to be there and to help with cooking and giving tours of the church and extending invitations to people looking for a church home.
We also need help spreading the word! So share with everyone and invite them to come and be a part of church festivities on July 25th, the Feast Day of St. James.
Looking forward to everything with you all; it is truly a highlight of the whole year for our parish family.
With you this month on the camino to St James,
Father Simon 

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.
