Welcome to St James United Methodist Church
Our St. James UMC Leadership team, the Ministry Action Group, met Tuesday night and discussed the rapid increase in COVID 19 cases and particularly the increase in hospitalizations that are impacting our entire state. We will be closing for public/in-person worship services for the following two Sundays: 11/29 and 12/6. We are planning on resuming public/in-person worship on Sunday, Dec. 13th, depending on how things progress. This is in hopes that we can stem the rampant spread of COVID 19. We are doing our part.
Please stay safe, stay home as much as possible, particularly over the Thanksgiving season.
Pastor Stu Rammes

22nd Sunday after Pentecost/All Saints Day/Holy Communion
Scripture Passage: Matthew 5:1-12; 1 John 3:1-3; Revelation 7:9-17
Message Title: Children of God
Theme: All Saints Day is a day to remember and honor all those believers who have passed away. We set aside this day to remember their examples of faith, character, love and service. And this is also the day when we remind ourselves that we are called to be saints too.
SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 8, 2020
23rd Sunday after Pentecost
Scripture Passage: Psalm 78:1-7; Matthew 25:1-13
Message Title: Prepping for Eternity
Theme: Are you prepared for Judgment Day? When it comes to our eternal preparations, we can’t borrow faith from someone else; we can’t put off being prepared until later, because later may be too late; and by not being prepared, we will miss out on what awaits those who are prepared.

24th Sunday after Pentecost
Scripture Passage: Matthew 25:14-30
Message Title: Church’s Got Talents
Theme: Jesus’ parable of the talents is a reminder that we’re not measured by what we have to begin with, but by what we do with what we have. God has given each of us at least one talent, one gift that is to be used in the work of the Kingdom, for the glory of God.

Christ the King Sunday
Scripture Passage: Matthew 25:31-46; Ephesians 1:15-23
Message Title: What’s On the Final Exam?
Theme: A day will come, Jesus says, when He will put on His judicial robe and take His place on the bench and everyone will have to come before Him to be judged. What will the ruling be? Sheep or goat? We already know what the questions are on the final exam.
