Christian Education

St. James’ welcomes, nurtures, and incorporates children in our worship and community life.  Children develop a sense of St. James’ as their church family and home.  They are encouraged to be acolytes, choir members, ushers and greeters.  We have a dynamic Church school program from infancy through teens.  Our church school is a vibrant community of adults and children who come together every Sunday morning to worship, learn, pray, sing, play games, develop a sense of belonging, and explore what it means to be a child of God.  Our vision is to provide God’s people with lectionary-based, ecumenical resources that empower all ages to be transformed in Christ as they:

  • explore meaning and mystery in the Bible
  • celebrate in worship, sacraments, education, and service
  • engage in ministries of love, justice, and witness
  • live in inclusive communities of faith, shaped and led by the Holy Spirit.
