At St. James UMC, we seek to provide a caring Christian atmosphere for the youngest visitors and members of our community, so that they might learn to love and follow Jesus.

Our children's ministry seeks to create an encouraging environment for children to learn about God's love and how that love translates into every day action in their lives. We seek to build a foundation of faith through games, arts and crafts, and Bible study.

Nursery Care
A nursery is available in Rooms #107/109 from 9:30 am to 11:30 am every Sunday morning for infants and toddlers. Our nursery is staffed by experienced and caring individuals. No reservations are required for Sunday mornings.


KiDS Club (Kids in Devotion and Service)
On Sunday afternoons, children (1st grade-5th grade) meet for KiDS Club to participate in activities to experience God, grow in Christ, and share God’s grace.

The next series that we will begin in Fall 2016 will be “Finding Jesus Under the Sea.” We will learn together what it means to dive deeper into our faith. Each week we will look at a different sea creature created by God. When we go under the sea and take a closer look at the creatures, we see that the sea has much to teach us about God.


Vacation Bible School
One of the highlights of being a kid at St. James UMC is Vacation Bible School. Each summer children gather for a week to experience God’s love through lessons, games, music, crafts, and prayer that are geared just for them! To register, click here:
