Online services on our Facebook page every Sunday.  In-church Services have been suspended as of 3/15/2020, as a precaution for the sake of the public health, as all churches have been requested to do due to the COVID-19 emergency in our world.  Stay safe. Practice social-distancing. Wash your hands often for at least 20 seconds.

We will not be reopening during RI Phase II, out of an abundance of caution, will not be resuming public worship services at St. James during Phase II. If we see that the Covid-19 case load continues to decline and that the staged re-openings are not contributing to m...ore infections during this phase, then we think we can look at starting in-person worship once the state makes the move to Phase III.

For the time being, in light of current events of COVID-19, service will be Live on Facebook at 10am Each Sunday, which you can watch live or at your leisure.  Click here

Once Phase III in RI begins, we hope we may be able to return to our normal schedule. Please stay tuned.


  • 8:00 AM (quiet service)
