Saint James Timeline

Over 275 years of worship, prayer and service to others

1744 – 1799 | 1800 – 1899 | 1900 – Present

The history of Saint James has been made by numerous men, women and children, lay and ordained who have sought to live out faithful lives in their families, in Lancaster and sometimes far beyond Pennsylvania.

These timelines attempt to show visually and in chronological order, many of the key people and events which shaped both this congregation and the wider world. Through text and images it is hoped that the viewer will be able to easily appreciate the important milestones in the life of one congregation and the evolution of members’ understanding of discipleship, mission and spirituality in response to the challenges and opportunities of their generation.
