New Member Classes Forming

The pastors cordially invite anyone thinking about becoming members of St. James to a one-session class on Sunday, May 19 from noon to about 3:00 p.m.

March’s class included thirty-one registrants seeking information about membership here at St. James United Methodist Church. Many have decided to take steps toward joining our congregation.

 
The classes will cover the following:
  • Getting to Know You–an overview of the entire class and an opportunity to introduce ourselves to one another
  • Core Values and Expectations–the values of being devoted, rooted, united, and missional and the promises we share as members of St. James
  • Discipleship Basics–Bible, Prayer, Worship, and Service
  • The Story of St. James–a walking history tour of St. James led by four longtime members and lay leaders of our congregation
  • The United Methodist Church and Wesleyan distinct traditions
  • Ministry at SJUMC–the “organizational chart” of ministry at St. James and how to plug into the ministry that inspires you; the nuts and bolts of participation

Sessions will be led by Pastors Ben Alexander and Mark Woods as well as lay leaders of St. James and Chris Garcia, director of Congregational Engagement.
 
The class will be held in the Fellowship Hall.  Please register by clicking the button below:
