St. James Episcopal Church serves Zanesville, Muskingum County and the surrounding southeastern Ohio area. We are a welcoming, caring, diverse, and inclusive community of faith, hope, love and fellowship. The people of St. James joyfully celebrate our love of God through worship, preaching, and music. In Christ’s name and led by the Holy Spirit we strive to learn more about God, endeavor to grow in our faith, and to serve others.

I wish to welcome you to St. James Church. In The Holy Gospels, Jesus welcomed all people who came to him. Some of them had broken bodies and some had broken hearts. Some of them just seemed fine but were amazed by his words and presence. However you find yourself on this day I want you to know you are welcome here. In this sacred place, amongst God’s people, you will find the real presence of Jesus Christ who will bring you healing and fullness of life. The Glory of God is the human being fully alive! Peace be with you.
