“For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.”

Matthew 18:20 (NIV)

We believe that spiritual growth happens best in connection with others. We strive to provide the opportunity to experience authentic community and spiritual growth. We have all types of groups for all types of people. It’s our intent to share the relevancy of God’s word in every area of your life.

Everyone is welcome here: whatever your story, your background, your life circumstances. We’re here to walk together on the journey of faith and that requires some activity from all of us.

We offer St. James free access to RightNow Media, an online church video library.
Essentially, it’s a Netflix for Bible studies with videos for kids, students, singles, parents and married couples by teachers like Tim Keller and John Piper. All the content can be accessed from a phone, tablet, computer or television.

We offer access to our in house lending library.
Explore all of the great Bible studies we have to offer.
