Welcome to all visitors of the Saint James website.
Many people comment that they know of St. James as one of those two little “white country churches” that they pass on Mays Landing Road on their way to the shore; or where they park to attend a ballgame at the field next door. We also have visitors who have stopped at the cemetery and prayer garden for some quiet time.
St. James is a member of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. We may be considered a "small" church, but that does not mean we cannot show God's love in a big way.
If you visit us you will come to see we are like a large family who love each other - warts and all. We work at being God's hands and feet in our community and helping others to know God's love through our actions, from the littlest of us to the oldest of us.
We invite you to attend our services and get to know us better. Linger for fellowship time following our service and enjoy refreshments while getting to meet our members.
Please join us as we grow together in faith and fellowship. We invite you to become involved in activities that serve and support our community on the local, regional and global levels.
Our church entrance is on the parking lot side of the church.
