Romans 8:28

And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God.

We welcome you into our faith community where we believe that the body of Christ is one with many members and all of the members unite to form one body. The St. James United Methodist Church body is a universal church in the name of Jesus with a mission to spread God’s love and redemption. Our unity in the Holy Spirit gives us comfort in knowing that God is continuing to do new things to empower us to make a way in the wilderness and give us rivers in the desert.


No matter the circumstances of the day, St. James United Methodist Church continues to be a refuge and a resource to everyone in our Alpharetta community. Whether through our virtual faith fellowships, our array of digital group ministries for all ages, or our pandemic and family support efforts, we will continue to walk boldly in our service for the Lord. We look forward to you and your family joining our unified family to find connection, hope and new strength as we move forward together.
