What We Do

Saint James' Episcopal Church - Hackettstown, New Jersey

Regular worship services

Our Sunday worship is in the Episcopal Tradition as found in the Book of Common Prayer. Worship is joyful and reverent, led by lay people and clergy together.

Summer worship services

We move to one service on Summer Sunday mornings and experiment with different forms of worship, such as Native American and Celtic liturgies, as well as the Holy Eucharist from other traditions such as the New Zealand Book of Common Prayer.

Special services

Interspersed with the traditional worship of The Episcopal Church are special services of healing, taizé, Children's Sabbath and the community celebration and remembrance of special occasions such as Thanksgiving and Veterans Day.

Prayer Ministry

A group of parishioners faithfully pray, each in our own way, for people known or unknown to us when they are in need of prayer. Prayers might be requested for someone who is critically ill; for someone preparing to undergo surgery or in recovery; for those who mourn or for someone in hard times, a job loss, a family in crisis.

Mission and Ministry

Our mission is to be an open, inclusive, and caring faith community that embraces diversity and celebrates the joy of Christ. Our ministry is how we carry out our mission; read about our many ministries here.
