Children & Family Ministries

​St. James believes that children and youth are the church of today. We strive to provide a dynamic and transformative spiritual experience for our youngest members, as well as for our oldest. For more information or to get involved, please contact Family Ministry Coordinator, Haley Schroeck, at hschroeck@stjamesbr.org.

Sunday School
Sunday School programming is designed to spark a love for Bible-based learning in students from PreK- 5th grade. Using art, creative drama, music, cooking, digital media, bible trivia, games, videos, and science, students interact with scripture in two to four different ways. Youth are invited to serve as class helpers. The Sunday School year follows the school year beginning in September and ends in May.

Children’s Chapel
Children’s Chapel is an opportunity to experience regular worship services at an age-appropriate level. During 9 a.m. service, children are encouraged to gather in the Chapel of the Twelve Apostles, located in the Parish Hall, following the Gospel Reading. They return in time for communion with their families. The service is designed for children grades three and under. Interested in assisting with Children’s Chapel? Sign up here.

Nursery
The St. James nursery is currently open from 8:45am-noon until further notice. We are also on the lookout for a few new nursery workers. To apply, email to hschroeck@stjamesbr.org.
