Christian Formation

Bible Study and Christian Formation

Study and grow in faith with us through our Christian formation opportunities. Help us serve the needs of others beyond our congregation through our many missions and community programs. Learn more about Bible study.

Children in Our Community and in Worship

Jesus said, “Let the children come to me.” At Saint James, we welcome children and their families to worship. Children are welcome in all of worship. A quiet play area can be found in the back of the church. Infants and children are invited to the rail to receive the sacrament or a blessing. There is nursery care available for children through age five as needed. Learn more about Christian Formation for Children.

Children and youth can serve in a variety of roles in our community:

  • Singing in the youth choir and providing instrumental music
  • Assisting in worship with ushering, reading, acolyting, and as eucharistic ministers
  • Helping to set up, serve, and clean up at events
