St. James Lutheran Church Weekly Church Services Saturday 6:00pm & Sunday at 8:45am
We currently provide two different formats of worship service.
We hope you will join us in our quest to grow closer in our personal relationship with our creator God. Visitors are always welcome. If you have any questions, call the church office 908-454-2864.
Saturday evening (6:00-7:00PM) is more contempory, lightly liturgical with more lively music mostly with piano. Attire is casual.
The complete order of the service is presented through our bulletin which is available upon entering the Church. Communion is offered, at every service, in groups that come forward to the altar and is performed by dipping a wafer or bread in a wine filled chalice. We practice “open communion”—meaning anyone who understands the extreme spiritual significance of this sacrament is welcome to partake. Children not yet instructed in the sacrament are always given a blessing.
Sunday morning (8:45 - 9:45AM) is more traditional with a strong emphasis on our 500 year old historic Lutheran Liturgy which in a three year cycle covers all basic Bible teachings and Lutheran doctrine. Music is mostly with organ and traditional older hymns.
The complete order of the service is presented through our bulletin. Communion is offered at every service, in groups that come forward to the altar and is performed by receiving a wafer or bread and a small individual cup of your choice of grape juice or wine.
