Ministries & Auxilaries

St. James United Methodist Church Ministries

Every member is a maturing disciple involved in ministry.

Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God’s grace in its various forms.”  -1 Peter 4:10, NIV

One of our primary goals at St. James is that “Every Member [is] a Maturing Disciple involved in Ministry.” The road to involvement in ministry begins with understanding our church, your Christian disciplines and utilizing your time, talents and gifts. You are encouraged to visit the monthly ministry meetings of interest to you in order to learn more about the service opportunities available. You may join a ministry at any time by contacting the ministry chair. Please give prayerful consideration to your commitments to ensure that your ministry selections allow for optimum use of your gifts and graces which are blessings from God.
