Holy Week & Easter Events
 
The week leading up to Easter, is a time of great emotional turmoil as we commemorate the Passion of Christ, Who died on Good Friday and rose on Easter Sunday to give new life to all who believe. While Holy Week is solemn and sorrowful, it also anticipates the joy of Easter through the recognition of God’s goodness in sending His Son to die for our salvation. At St. James, we encourage you to experience the Passion of Christ by participating in the Holy Week services.
 

Easter Sunday

Joy and Hope burst into this world as Jesus conquered the grave and rose on Easter morning!  At St. James, we celebrate His victory and worship the Risen Savior.  We hope that you will join us for any or all of the events on Sunday morning, April 21st.
