Be Ye Doers of the Word and Not Hearers Only Start Doing

Youth Ministry – 6th to 12th graders

The Youth Ministry at St. James’s is so much more than just a “youth group.” We help engage 6th – 12th graders, and their families, in all aspects of church life in addition to providing service projects, programs, and retreats specifically for youth.

Mission and Values

St. James’s Youth Ministry loves and supports our youth through a joyful Christian Community so that they may explore a relationship with Christ, find their identity in God’s love for them, and serve God as Doers of the Word.

Ministry Values

  • Community – We develop and celebrate friendships.
  • Love – We love others as Christ loves us.
  • Acceptance – We welcome and celebrate all, as members of the body of Christ.
  • Faithfulness – We are grounded in God’s love and seek to grow in faith and service.
  • Fun – We embrace a playful environment.
