Enduring Faith

led by Grace Gillespie every Sunday at 10:45 a.m. in room P206 (5th grade classroom)

St. James Sunday school uses the Enduring Faith Bible curriculum. As students progress from preschool through adult, they learn all about their Savior Jesus Christ, what their Savior means for them, how to defend their faith, and how to teach the faith to others. The adult Bible class led by Grace Gillespie is also using the Enduring Faith curriculum, written for adults, to study the same lessons as the children and youth. This is an excellent weekly way to connect with all ages around the same Bible story. 

A Longer Look at the Lessons

led by Mark Bunton every Sunday at 10:45 in room F202 (fellowship hall)

Above All Else (New Member Class)

led by Pastor Ed Morrow beginning on Sunday, January 28 and Tuesday, January 30 in room F202 (fellowship hall)

New member classes will be starting soon! If you are interested in attending, please contact the church office at 423-1616. The classes will meet for 12 weeks. Each session presents the essentials of faith based on God's Word. The topics are not ancient stories with little relevance for life today. Instead, you will hear the Good News of forgiveness, life, and salvation; Good News for the challenges, problems, and tribulations you experience every day. This class is a great refresher for current members too. Please prayerfully consider joining us! 

The Sunday class will be at noon (child care and snacks will be provided).
The Tuesday class will be at 6:00 p.m.
