Children and 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 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 10:30 a.m. services, 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.
Summer Playdates

When temperatures rise and the summer drags on, the families of St. James are invited to come together for fellowship and fun with various summer playdates. More details to come as the summer approaches.

Youth Ministries

The St. James Youth Group monthly meetup – open to youth from grades 6-12 – takes place every third Sunday of the month in Bishops Hall, after 10:30 a.m. services. The site remains the same unless otherwise noted. Meetings conclude at 1:45 p.m.

Education for Ministry

Education for Ministry (EfM) is a unique, four-year distance learning certificate program in theological education based upon small-group study and practice. Since its founding in 1975, this international program has assisted more than 100,000 participants in discovering and nurturing their call to Christian service. EfM helps the faithful encounter the breadth and depth of the Christian tradition and bring it into conversation with their experiences of the world as they study, worship, and engage in theological reflection together.
