At. St. James' Episcopal Church, at the corner of Valley and Bellevue, we will gather for our last Sunday worship services on our Summer Schedule of 8:15 and 9:30 a.m. (On September 9th, we return to services at 8:15 and 10:15 a.m.) Because this Monday is Labor Day, we will prayfully ask God to help us to recall that our common life depends on each other’s toil, to be grateful for those whose labor benefits our community, and to dedicate our own work to serving God's mission of compassion for all.
