WE ARE A JOYFUL Christian community on Grosse Ile, where faith, friendship, and family go hand in hand.

In our WORSHIP we follow a two-part form, bringing together scripture and sacrament in every worship service.  Our sermons are lively, focused, and timely, composed in light of the times and needs of our members.  Our music is traditional and compelling, comprising beautiful words and melodies that are enjoyable to sing. 

In our profession of FAITH we are solidly Christian.  We believe Jesus was fully human and fully divine.  We seek to explore and understand what that mystery means for us.  We regard the whole Bible as meaningful, so our Bible Studies and sermons look to both the Old and New Testaments of scripture.  Above all we seek to know God as he has revealed himself to us in Jesus Christ, seeking to love God with all our heart, soul and strength and to love our neighbors as ourselves.

At Saint James’ our LIFE TOGETHER begins in Christ and is expressed in worship, but we enjoy fellowship opportunities of every kind.  For three years running we have chartered  a bus to attend a summer Tiger’s game.  We have had square-dancing and movie parties, musical celebrations on the front lawn, mission trips, vacation bible school’s and more. 

We hope this website will help orient you to who we are and what we value. As Jesus said to his disciples, “Come and See!”
