A Worshipping Family Proclaiming Christ through Love and Service to all People



We welcome you to St. James’ website. St. James is a warm and welcoming congregation in the middle of Elmira.

Worship is at the heart of our life together and so we meet each Sunday morning. We begin with Sunday School at 9:00 a.m. A time of Fellowship with Coffee and tea is available at 9:45 and Worship begins at 10:15 in the Sanctuary. Holy Communion offered on the first Sunday of the month during the summer. Whether you are a seeker or a visitor to the area, here you will be invited to explore your faith, ask questions and encounter the Divine Mystery that is the source of all life and creation.
