Welcome To St. James

It is my pleasure to welcome you to St. James' Episcopal Church, where all are welcome and everyone has a place. We believe in living the Word and loving those whom we encounter. Preach when necessary is what we follow while treating everyone with respect what we do. Life at St. James is casual but intentional, and we believe in making this church a community of believers in Jesus, believing in the power of the Holy Spirit to change all of us to be better people. Give us a try and experience the power of community to propel your spiritual life. 

If I can be of any help in this journey you are on, or to know more about the Episcopal Church, give me a call. 417-881-3073

What I think of St. James!

The reason I am at St James is because of the Wednesday morning Healing Service, it is a very powerfull service that is good for people battling an illness,, suffering from job stress, dealing with family issues, also I love the compassionate Clergy here, and supportive fellowship. - Theresa McCullough
When I moved to Missouri from Texas and went to church for the first time, the congregation of St. James was so welcoming and took the time to get to know me. The people here are always willing to lend a helping hand or send love and prayers in times of need and will constantly check on you when there are troubles, and during the great times they will celebrate with you! St. James feels like home from the moment you step in the door, whether it is your first time visiting or if you’re a long time member. - Haley Sanderson
What I love the most about our St. James community is the unique, authentic way in which it embodies the spirit of Christ's love.  You can truly sense the sincere, personal interest for every person from your very first moments here and that's very special.  For me at least, these loving relationships have been a wonderful gateway into the broader life of God's Kingdom, offering support and joy to me as I continue in my personal walk, learning to better care for and serve others, as well as our broader community. Brett Durbin
We both love that St. James offers healing services every Wednesday where we feel the most at ease. There’s more intimacy among a small crowd than a large one. We still like Sunday services though where we can enjoy your sermons and participate in the Holy Eucharist with the whole congregation. TED and Elaine
