St. James Episcopal Church worships according to the Episcopal Book of Common Prayer 1979 (http://justus.anglican.org/resources/bcp/). Each Sunday our services are The Holy Eucharist, also known as The Mass, The Lord’s Supper or a Communion Service. All baptized Christians are invited to receive the sacrament. It is Christ’s Body and all Christians are members.
Our worship is based on the Latin 14th century European service which the Roman Catholic and Lutheran denominations also used to develop their current worship. The Episcopal Church’s order is influenced by Orthodox Eucharist practices through our connection to the Anglican Free Church of Scotland.
We use the Revised Common Lectionary for our scriptural passages each week.
