St. James Youth

St. James is an awesome place for a child or teen to grow in their faith. The programs available for children and youth 2-1-14 272are coordinated by compassionate and nurturing folks. They allow youth to flourish into the people that God intended them to be, while providing a safe environment for them to hang out (and eat)! The church offers a youth group for teens and young adults (7th– 12th grade) where there are games, fellowship, scriptural teachings and the occasional mission trip to help those in need. There is Revelation Youth Band as well, where you can sing, play an instrument, or learn how to play a new instrument. St. James offers a Sunday school class for all students ranging from pre-k to 12th grade. Students can study God’s word while having tons of fun. If you love to sing, you may want to join the Children’s choir. There are plenty of opportunities to make new friends at St. James. It is a welcoming and loving community of people that are always there to help. St. James has a positive impact in the lives of all that enter through its doors.  Our Children and Youth leader, Tonya Coley, enthusiastically welcomes all young people to St. James!

 Jesus said, “Let the children come to me. Don’t stop them! For the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to those who are like these children.”

῀Matthew 19:14
