Welcome to St. James' Episcopal Church


The fall sermon series begins with these questions: What do I want? What am I longing for? How is God inviting me to say “yes” in this season of my life?

For six weeks, beginning Sept. 7, we will explore the counter-cultural idea that an out- wardly simple life yields greater inner riches. This series, based on Jan Johnson’s book, Abundant Simplicity, provides an opportunity to examine busy schedules, multitudes of posses- sions, use of technology and other aspects of daily life in order to make choices that enhance quality of life and deepen our relationship with God.

Following is a sneak preview of the sermon titles:

  • Sept. 7 - Abundant life with God
  • Sept. 14 - What do you really want?
  • Sept. 21 - The intentional, unhurried life
  • Sept. 28 - Putting the “free” in free time,/li>
  • Oct. 5 - Living light, enjoying generosity
  • Oct. 12 - Everyday abundant simplicity

The sermon series is being accompanied by a church-wide book study. Groups are forming now. Please contact anyone on the Adult Formation Team for more information: Eric Amberge, Toppie Bates, Becky Coerper or Tom Schneider.
