Becoming a Member
If you would like to learn more about becoming a member of the Episcopal Church of Saints James and Andrew, you might begin by joining us for worship, where you will gain a deeper sense of the beliefs and practices of our faith community. You can also schedule a time to meet with the clergy and download our Newcomer's Guide. You can also download a Buildings & Grounds Map, Lower Level Map, and Parking Map. As you consider whether Saints James and Andrew is a place for you, here are a few unique things about our community.
We are an inclusive, welcoming community that believes worship should engage people of all ages, and are committed to making worship meaningful for the whole church. No matter what your age or situation, there is a place for you.
From newborns to children, teens to young adults, middle somethings to elders - we gather as one body for worship seeking to involve all interested worshippers. There is a littles corner in the back of the church, and bags with coloring at the church entrance.
We have talented parish musicians and a dedicated choir that offer excellent music. The music enhances our worship and community, and provides opportunities for people to offer their talents for the glory of God.
We are committed to serving those facing poverty and hardship in our community. We offer many services to support our local community, such as Second Helpings, our free community meal; a skills sharing group, St. Andrew's Guild; everyday essential items not covered by SNAP dollars at Whitney's Pantry; spiritual companioning for those on the margins, and much more.
Love our Neighborhood
We care deeply for our neighborhood and are always seeking to build stronger relationships with our neighbors. Whether it’s through church sponsored events for the community, sharing our spaces with the community, or parishioners volunteering at local schools, hospitals, and service agencies.
The Episcopal Church of Saints James and Andrew is more than just Sundays. Throughout the week, there are many ways to be involved in education, fellowship, and ministry.
