Children are invited to come between 10:00 am - 10:30 am for a time of self-directed fun and fellowship. At 10:30 am our children join us for the beginning of the service of worship. Then, they go into their classrooms (Infants through Kindergarten, and 1st through 6th grades). What they learn and experience in their age groups is consistent with the message and scripture used in worship. Our classroom time with the children includes the use of visual and media arts, storytelling, drama, games, and journaling.
Within the Sunday School hour, during the worship service, and through at-home activities we recognize, celebrate and bless the various milestones in our children’s lives. Throughout the year we focus on milestones such as Baptism, Prayer, Receiving a Bible, Blessing of Backpacks, Communion, Confirmation, Money, Mission and Graduation. Resources for parents and caregivers are provided, so that families can continue to celebrate and encourage children through important transitions. Together we can explore how God is present in each stage of our lives and honor the growth of our children within the context of church and family.
Adults at St. James have a variety of ways they can move forward in their journey of faith. Throughout the year we offer several Zoom Adult Ed sessions. We also have a small library in the social hall where folks can borrow (not take) books that may be helpful to their faith journey.
