Worship & Music

Typically, St. James offers three worship opportunities each weekend Labor Day through Memorial Day.  Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, we are not open for in-person worship, but are offering weekly worship online on our YouTube Channel, StJamesVerona.

  • Online Worship

    8:30 am Sunday

    Currently we are offering Streaming Worship at 8:30 am on the first three Sundays of each month on our YouTube Channel, StJamesVerona.  On the fourth Sunday of each month, we offer a pre-produced service, also available for viewing on our YouTube Channel.  We invite you to join us!

  • Traditional Worship - Paused

    5:00 pm Saturday, 8:30 am Sunday

    This service offers the opportunity to worship in a "traditional" setting, featuring our new Rogers organ. The liturgy setting from Evangelical Lutheran Worship is currently Setting Four (Lutheran Book of Worship Setting Two). During the school year, there is a children's sermon at the 8:30 service. Saturday evening worship follows this pattern.

  • Blended Worship - Paused

    10:45 am Sunday

    Blended Worship features piano, and occasionally other instruments. The liturgy is Now the Feast and Celebration by Marty Haugen.

    During June, July, and August, we offer two worship opportunities at 5:00 pm on Saturday and 9:00 am on Sunday and we alternate between Traditional and Blended Worship each week.

    Eucharist is celebrated at every service.

Sunday Morning Conversations12

Sunday Morning Conversations

Every Sunday after worship services we gather for a light discussion around a variety of topics – we may explore the Sunday readings and the sermon, hear from a person in the community and their particular ministry, or explore a current topic of interest that impacts our lives as Christians. There is no signup. Join us any Sunday at 9:40 am in the Emmaus Room.

For more information, please contact Pastor Peter Narum at (608) 845‑6922 or pnarum@stjamesverona.org

Funeral Planning


The Christian funeral is a gift. In the midst of grief and sorrow, we gather to comfort one another and to hear what is at the center of our faith: Jesus is Risen! The Christian funeral is a proclamation that nothing can separate us from God’s love: the promises we receive in Baptism are forever.
