You Belong Here! Joyfully Proclaiming, Living, and Sharing Christ's Love
Welcome to St. James' Episcopal Church in West Bend, Wisconsin. We are an active parish of the Episcopal Diocese of Milwaukee with local roots going back to 1876. We put our faith into action. Our many ministries and outreach programs help to share the grace that God has showered into our lives with those who live around us in our communities.
St. James' welcomes all whom God sends us regardless of race, religion, age, gender, or sexual orientation. We believe that baptism is full inclusion in the family of the Church and all baptized Christians are welcome to share in Holy Communion.
You will find that St. James' is small enough to be personable, but large enough to offer a variety of ways to grow in faith and serve the community.
