A Commitment to Lifelong Faith Learning
As Episcopalians, we practice lifelong faith learning, but we also strive to practice our faith our whole life long. Formation starts with young children...children's sermons, children's chapel, Sunday school classes, vacation bible school, and moves to youth, EYC, and young adults. We have formation for the confirmation of youth and adults, and regular formation classes for all ages. There is something for everyone. Small groups, large groups, men's groups, women's groups, prayer groups, study groups. You should be able to find a place to suit your formation needs at St. James.
