A Church that is a Farm that is a School

Our Vocation


We are a church. A new phase of life for Episcopal Church of Our Saviour, St. James will remain a community of worship, preaching, teaching the Christian faith, and celebration of the sacraments. We worship in the Anglican tradition, following the Book of Common Prayer. Join us at 11 a.m. every Sunday.



We are a farm. Since 2003, church members, friends from the neighborhood, and the organization Gardners in Community Development have been growing food and feeding our neighbors in need. This farm is central to our mission, and will be a vital part of our educational program.



We will be a school. By the Fall of 2019, we intend to transform our way of being a church by becoming a Christian middle school that serves the students and families of Pleasant Grove.


Episcopal Identity

Being an Episcopal church and school means living out the Christian faith as it has been passed down to us in an ancient tradition that still speaks today.

We worship together, grow as a community, devote ourselves to study and faith formation, and work for social justice.
