There are many ways to serve at St. James UMC. Here are some of the ways that you can get involved today!
St. James Food Pantry
The St. James Food Pantry has been assisting many families this summer and is in desperate need for donations. Please bring food to the church and place in the bins in the office hallway. Click here for a list of specific items.
Van drivers are needed for a new program at St. James, The St. James Adventurers. This is a multi-generational mission for all people to go on one-day field trips. Plans for the next few months are trips to visit the museums in Raleigh, the bird sanctuary in Scotland Neck, the U.S.S. North Carolina in Wilmington, and a baseball game in Kinston. The church needs van drivers to drive the participants to these events. These trips will occur on various days, some on weekdays and some on weekends.
Drivers will receive $10 per hour plus admissions fees and lunch will be paid for. Also drivers need to be trained, have a valid drivers license (a commercial license is not needed) and a church background check.
Kairos Maury Prison Ministry
There is an exciting ministry in eastern North Carolina that helps us fulfill Jesus’ teaching. It is the Kairos Maury Prison Ministry. This is a volunteer driven, not for profit ministry that is striving to build a church behind the walls of Maury prison. Their mission is “to share the transforming Love of Jesus Christ to impact the hearts and lives of incarcerated men, women, and youth as well as their families, to become loving and productive citizens of their communities.”
You know, a person does not have to travel to Africa, India, or any third world nation in order to do mission work; there is mission work right here in eastern North Carolina. There are a number of St. James members that would be happy to share their experiences with the Kairos Maury Prison Ministry. If God is leading you to serve him in a new way this year, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Call 758-4400 if you want more information about the services of the center.
