(July 2021): The Latest Guidelines for In-person Worship
Bishop McLoughlin has lifted the mask requirement for in-person worship and gatherings. While masks will no longer be required, those parishioners who wish to wear a mask are welcome to do so. Also, if you have not yet been fully vaccinated, we ask that you continue to wear a mask until you have received one of the covid vaccines.
This week the service schedule is as follows: Saturday at 5:00 PM, Sunday at 7:30 and 10:00 AM, and Wednesday at noon. Both the Saturday and Sunday 10:00 AM services will be livestreamed on our Facebook page. Facebook Bulletins for all weekend services are available here: Saturday and 7:30 Sunday and 10:00 Sunday. As an additional aid to online worshippers, links to the assigned hymns and liturgy can be viewed here: Hymns and Liturgy. Please note that Adult Christian Formation will not meet this Sunday, July 25th, or the next, August 1st. The class will resume in August, with details to follow in upcoming eBulletins.
We welcome worshipers not just from our congregation, but from all over the country. We welcome worshipers who are not members of the Episcopal Chruch, those who belong to other churches, and those who may not want to join a church, but want to be with us on Sundays. If you would like one of our clergy or staff to be in touch with you, or wish to be added to our parish email list, please click here. Contact form
And now, we bid you welcome to our website and thank you for your interest in St. James! Our parishioners form a vibrant community of 700 plus members who come here to be refreshed through worship and Christian education, so they can continue to live the mission to which they have been called by God. We strive to create a nurturing, caring, and supportive spiritual home where all are loved, welcomed, and served. We eagerly anticipate getting to know you and welcoming you into our family. Our life together as members of St. James Episcopal Church in Hendersonville is guided by our mission and vision statements:
St. James Mission Statement: Every member is vital as we follow the example of Jesus’ servant ministry to welcome all, love all, serve all, through Christ.
St. James Vision Statement: St. James will be a community of passionate servants who live out God's ever-present love through inspiring worship, faith-forming discipleship, and active ministries that make an impact in the church, the community, and the world.
We strive to adhere to these statements in all of our ministries and our life together, whether they are in helping the community around us or in supporting our fellow parishioners.
