Concordia Preparatory School –Saint James is one of the founding member congregations of Concordia Preparatory School. Through the Association Saint James supports Lutheran secondary education in the Baltimore area.
History – Saint James was established as a worshipping community in 1906. We have been serving the Lord and receiving His gifts at our present location since the winter of 1907.
Family Oriented – Saint James has an average Sunday worship attendance of about 75 and enjoys the participation of Christians of all ages. Young singles, new parents and children, middle aged and retirees are all an active part of our fellowship.
For those who may need a little extra help we are fully handicapped accessible, with an entry ramp, elevator and handicapped restrooms on both floors.
For families with young children our restrooms are equipped with baby changing stations. Our narthex is furnished with comfortable chairs, clear glass windows and a sound system that allow parents to see and hear the worship service even while they may need to leave the service to tend to their children’s needs.
About Saint James -
Worship – Saint James uses traditional liturgical service settings found in the Lutheran Service Book, which contains all of the familiar liturgies and hymns of our Lutheran heritage as well as many of our new favorites.
Worship is a time when God serves His people by offering His love and forgiveness delivered through His Holy Word and Blessed Sacraments. God’s people respond to these gifts by prayer and praise.
At Saint James we regularly celebrate the Sacrament of the Altar (Lord’s Supper). In this sacrament Jesus’ true body and blood, given and shed by Him for the forgiveness of our sins, are distributed and received at His altar. Because we also see fellowship in this sacrament as a confession of unity of faith, we ask all visitors to speak with the pastor before participating.
We leave the worship service each week empowered by the Holy Spirit to live lives as good stewards of the time, talents and treasures God gives us and to share God’s love and the good news of Jesus with everyone we meet.
