Children’s Sunday School
Children’s Sunday School lessons and activities are available for children ages preschool to 5th grade during the church service. Children meet in the back of the church during the Gradual (song before the Gospel reading) and will walk to the classroom together. They will join their families during the exchanging of the peace so they can join their families during Communion. If you have questions, or are interested in helping with children’s ministry, please contact Paula Velez (559-389-8042 or email@example.com).

$$ Building Fund for the Future! $$
Some of our parishioners have started making deposits into our Building Fund. We encourage our whole congregation to consider giving to this fund as the Lord leads. Soon we will have a “thermometer” to watch this fund grow as our Transition Team is diligently praying, working, and looking for the right place for St. James to settle as we continue to serve our most gracious Lord. These are exciting times and God is good!
