Youth Ministries

Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity.    1 Tim 4:12

St. James' Youth Group

We seek to foster a nonjudgmental and compassionate environment where youth in grades 6th through 12th grade can be themselves, wherever you are on your journey of faith. (Friends and guests ages 12-18 are always welcome.)  RSVP to If you have dietary restrictions, let Simone know.

Children's Choir (for all children and youth): The choir meets monthly at 4:30 pm to learn music, have dinner, and sing at the 5:30 pm Sunday Children's Service (Next date is Sunday, November 17.)

Family Christmas Eve Service: Join us for our annual family oriented service at 4pm, Tuesday, December 24th. We begin the service with a 'pick up' pageant, where children come dressed as their favorite character from the gospel narrative: Stars, Angels, Sheep, Shepherds, Mary, Joseph, baby Jesus, Wise-people, and Animals of all kinds. When their character is mentioned in the story they will be invited to join us up at the manger. (No costume? No problem, we have plenty!) The pageant is followed by a brief child oriented Eucharist with music provided by our Children's Choir.
