Our vision for St. James guides us as individuals and as a community down a path of relationships and connections. It begins with and is centered in the loving relationship that God has established with our community through the waters of baptism and the hospitality of the table. By grace, we are brought into a vibrant and life giving connection with the Creator of all life. Because of God’s action in our lives, we find ourselves intricately linked to others within this community. Among us, there is a diversity of perspectives, experiences, ages, income levels, and ethnic identities. We celebrate this reality and we seek to support each other. In addition, God’s grace invites us beyond ourselves into the lives of neighbors who surround us with an even greater, and many times undiscovered, diversity. Our vision invites us to put people before programs, commitments before consumption, and love into action in tangible ways that benefit our neighbor.
St. James is a congregation of the St. Paul Area Synod and the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America.
