St. James’ is a welcoming in-person and “cyber church” that meets both on Sunday mornings, and also weekly on Wednesday nights for Zoom worship attended by parishioners from not just Encampment, but also Alaska, Arizona, Nebraska, Colorado, Cheyenne, Laramie and Rawlins. Through all life’s chaos and concerns, members bond over prayers, both ancient and spontaneous. Laughter and fellowship replaces isolation and enriches our prayer life.
We continue to grow like ripples on a pond, supporting each other no matter where our computers are plugged in. We love to add friends, neighbors and far-flung family members to our Wednesday night weekly Zoom services.

The early records of Encampment have been lost but we do know the Rev. Doctor R.E.G. Huntington, Rector of St. Thomas’ in Rawlins cared for the congregation in Encampment during the years 1888-1905. St. James’ was founded when Encampment was one of the most active copper mining towns in the country. Worship services in Encampment began in 1888. Today Encampment is renowned for its trout fishing, as key rivers and creeks go through the area.
