Current Covid-19 Policy for St. James

The CDC has stated that those who have been fully vaccinated no longer need to wear masks or social distance. Those who have not received the vaccination should continue to wear a mask and social distance. The church council discussed this past week what this means for St. James.

Beginning today, May 23rd, individuals will now have the option of whether they want to wear a mask or not (at both services). We are asking that the right side of the pews remained distanced (using every other pew).

We are asking that our congregation members remain patient with each other and care for each other in the best ways possible. Some may not be ready to return to worship while others are ready to remove the mask. Continue to encourage each other, building each other up in prayer and petitions.

If you are feeling ill or exhibiting any symptoms of covid, we ask that you worship with us online.

Located in the heart of Montague, MI, St. James Lutheran has been part of the community since 1872. Made up of nearly 700 members, St. James Lutheran Church is a congregation on the go and on the grow! As you meet members of the congregation, it quickly becomes obvious that the family is the central bond that keeps our church growing. Many of our members are second and third generation families. Even if you are new to the area and our church, you will soon feel like you are part of our family.

Our Christian life is founded on the bible-based teachings of Martin Luther, who inspired the reformation of the Christian Church. Our beliefs can be summarized in three short, simple, yet powerful statements: Grace Alone, Scripture Alone, and Faith Alone. At St. James, you will find the spiritual studies to be interesting and thought provoking. Throughout the week there are many activities for Christians of all ages.

We pray that the grace of God has touched your spirit and that you feel welcome and invited to be a part of the St. James Lutheran Family.
