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.
