Infants – 3 years olds
Sunday School for our youngest United Methodists begins in the Nursery as soon as our babies can sit in a chair. Early Christian Awareness (ECA) introduces the foundation of life-long faith formation in an interactive, song-filled atmosphere.
3 year olds – 5th grade
Sunday School at St. James is designed to help students learn to discover how they are part of God’s big story using their faith as a foundation for life.
St. James Kids uses curriculum that includes adventure, exciting stories, science experiments, arts and crafts, animated video storytelling, and active games—all combined into a living-faith experience that will help children discover what it means to be a disciple of Jesus Christ today!
Kids 3 years old through 4th grade are divided by age or grades. The 1st through 5th grade classes are combined upstairs in the newly renovated “Mountaintop.”
MAD+, (Missions, Arts & Drama)
(Kindergarten – 2nd grade)
Through missions, arts, drama and more, children in Kindergarten through second grade will have a chance to explore their faith in a variety of fun activities. Each is designed to help kids imagine where they fit into God’s big story.
T2 (Tween Time) (3rd – 5th grades)
Designed for our older elementary students, T2 provides students with an engaging way to dive into their Bibles, to build a strong foundation for their faith. Students are encouraged to bring a brown bag supper or join their families at Wednesday Night Dinner in Jones Hall. The first Wednesday of each month is a crowd pleasing Pizza Night provided by the children’s ministry. No need to sign up, just join us!
PNO (Parents’ Night Out)
2nd Saturday Sept. – May
Parents’ Night Out is designed to provide kids with a fun, safe place to be, while parents get a brief respite (and maybe a date). The evening includes a snack supper, games and more. Designed for infants through 5th grade. Cost is $10 for each child.

ADVENTURES FOR THE CITY: The week-long camp is scheduled for August of every year. St. James is aiming to make camp more accessible to children in our community so that every child can experience Christ-like change through outdoor adventure, authentic relationships and Biblical truth.
Adventure for the Cityers will experience just about everything traditional away camps have to offer – from rock climbing to archery tag to soaking-wet water activities – supervised by the world’s most energetic counselors. For one week, they’ll worship with friends, explore God’s unchanging Word and learn what it means to be a kid who follows Christ.
Registration starts in early March. You can register by going here:
