Wanting to Move to St. James?

Please send an email to hello@annunciationoca.org or give Fr. Joel a call to arrange a time to visit.

If your family is considering a move and would like to visit first, we would love to meet you and can most likely host you for a weekend. We also have a realtor in the parish who can help you begin looking for a new home near the church.

Enter a starting address:

If you prefer good old-fashioned step-by-step directions, here they are from I-44.

  • Take exit 189 for Rolla (Hwy V, Hypoint Ind. Park)
  • At the stop light, turn north onto Hwy V.
  • Go 2.5 miles, then turn left at CR 2080
  • Go about 1/4 mile and you will see the sign for Annunciation
  • Turn right onto PVT 2083. The Church is the first drive on the right.
GPS Guidance

If you prefer to use voice guidance, we recommend using the Google Maps or Apple Maps apps on your smartphone with our address, which will guide you right to the door of the church. (We do not recommend using a GPS unit such as Garmin or TomTom, which will take you to downtown St. James about eight miles away.)

Once You’re Here

Visitors Welcome!

Here are a few tips to help make your first visit with us a good one:

  • We don’t have a proper parking lot yet, so please just park wherever you can find a spot.
  • Be sure to sign our guestbook in the entryway with your contact information.
  • Please take anything of interest in our literature rack  – we have many free brochures and booklets. We also have a small book store with many books on the spiritual life available.
  • If it’s your first time to an Orthodox service, the service books offered are often more of a hindrance than a help so we recommend just observing for your first visit.
  • Please know that Holy Communion is for baptized Orthodox Christians who have made preparations through prayer, fasting, and recent confession.
  • Be our guest during Social Hour after the Divine Liturgy on Sundays (and go first in line)!

We love having new people come and look forward to meeting you. May the Lord bless you and your visit!
