Welcome to St James United Methodist Church

A place to Worship, Grow & Serve

We are a United Methodist congregation open to everyone who wants to come and worship. Located at 401 Carlwood Dr., Miamisburg Ohio, 45342, we are among the oldest churches in Miamisburg, Ohio, with our congregation’s founding dating back to 1838. We are also a come-as-you-are church where everyone is welcome to our casual blended worship led by Pastor Stu Rammes.

We also have a nursery where children, from infants up to 2 years of age, may stay. Quality childcare is provided as well as changing areas in both the nursery and main restroom. We even have TV’s in both the Gathering Place as well as the Nursery so you can keep posted on your child’s activities while also worshiping. We also have a child care center and a Christian based preschool.

Baptism of the Lord
Scripture Passage: Matthew 3:13-17
Message Title:  A New Beginning
Theme: Some of us need to be set free from our old lives.  Some of us are unhappy with where we are in our faith journey.  Some of us have made grievous mistakes along the way.  The waters of Christian baptism symbolize the opportunity every child of God has to make a new beginning.  To be set free.

Scripture Passage: John 1:29-42
Message Title:  Behold The Lamb
Theme:  “Behold the Lamb of God that takes away the sins of the world.” See Him in His majesty.  See Him in His mercy.  See Him in His ministry to the world, a ministry He calls you and me to complete.  May His example inspire us and His presence empower us until all the world knows that the victory has been won.

3rd Sunday after the Epiphany
Scripture Passage:  Matthew 4:18-22
Message Title:  When Fishermen Don’t Fish
Theme:  When fishermen don’t fish, they fight.  When fishermen don’t fish, they lose their courage and run away.  When fishermen don’t fish, they forget what their primary reason for being is.  Let’s get back to our primary task reaching out to and ministering to people.

4th Sunday after the Epiphany/Holy Communion
Scripture Passage:  Matthew 5:1-12
Message Title:  The World’s Most Extraordinary Club
Theme:  Jesus invites us into an extraordinary fellowship.  He’s already paid the price of admission—once, and in full, and for all.  If you don’t have anything to offer to God except your heart, the kingdom of heaven is open for you.  If this world has nothing to offer you, the kingdom of heaven is also open for you.  If you’re willing to open yourself to Jesus’ love, the kingdom of heaven is open for you.

5th Sunday after the Epiphany
Scripture Passage:  Matthew 5:13-20
Message Title:  Salt and Light

Theme:  The Spirit of the living God is active in our lives and through our lives, to make us salt and light.  The Spirit animates the church which is the body of Christ to pursue the mission Jesus entrusted to His disciples: to let their light shine before others, the earth, the world  –  those within and without the family of faith.
