New Members

We are so blessed to have you as a part of the St James church community.


We expect all New Members to participate in a four-session New Member Class that is held on a quarterly basis.  The dates for the classes can be found here under Membership Classes.  You don’t have to wait until you complete New Member class to join a ministry, attend Sunday School or participate in a Bible Study.  You are welcome to join a ministry that will fit your gifts and continue your faith development through regular Bible Study.  A listing of the Sunday School classes are available here.   At St James, we are Connecting People With God in Practical Ways, so if you have an idea for a new ministry or Bible Study topic, we would love to hear from you!  If you have any questions about your new church home, growing in your faith or which ministries might be right for you, please contact Minister Elmer Cunningham, our Minister of Faith Development, at 816-444-5588 x118 or ecunningham@stjamesumc.com.

St. James is better because you are here!!  We praise God for you!
