What can I expect?
How long is a St. james worship service?
In total, a St. James service is about 1 hour in length.
In our contemporary service the music is led by our praise band "Master Plan", while in our traditional service the music comes from the United Methodist Hymnal and is led by our choir and pianist - song lyrics are projected onto the screens so you can sing along and/or engage with worship however you feel most comfortable. After the music portion of service is complete, our pastor will share with us a message from the Scriptures in her sermon.
We meet at the communion table the first Sunday of the month. We practice open communion here, meaning that no one can earn a seat at the table - everyone is invited (gluten-free option available.
Every Sunday we take up an offering. If you are a first time visitor do not feel required to give, however if you feel called too or feel that St. James UMC is the place for you than we thank you for you gifts.
What's the culture like at st. james umc?
Sunday's at St. James UMC are exciting, casual, and relaxed. Come as you are and expect to feel welcomed as our guest.
What about my kids?
We believe that kids should have a blast at church every single week - and at St. James, we make this a priority. The other thing we make a priority is your children’s safety. We have Sunday School for kids all ages in between services. Our nursery is available during our services for children ages infant through 3 years old.
