Music changes lives. 


The majestic sound of the organ has welcomed people to St. James by-the-Sea for nearly a hundred years. We live out our faith as Christians in artistic expression, and nothing speaks more deeply to the soul than powerful, spirit-filled music. St. James has always been known for the quality of its music ministry, and we live into that by investing our time, talent, and resources to offer our very best to God. We are proud to be known for our music, and now more than ever our world cries out for the compassion and beauty that music uniquely provides. That is why when our previous organ reached the end of its life, we made a bold choice to build this new Rosales/Parsons organ. 

Our goal. $3.5 Million.

Building a new organ is a big commitment. This campaign aims to raise $3.5 million. Included is the cost of the organ itself, preparations to our building, and an endowment for organ maintenance and education. The church has faced challenges in every generation, and each time the St. James community has risen to make the outcome even better than it was before. As you consider making a pledge, remember that The St. James Organ Project is about living our faith, not just fixing something that is broken. It is about standing at the crossroads of faith and culture as a witness to our community. Every gift makes a difference!
