About Us

St James United Methodist Church is a place to WORSHIP God, to GROW in faith, and to SERVE others so that all God’s children live out their faith in Christian action.

We are a United Methodist congregation that has been in existence since 1838 in Miamisburg, Ohio. The first pastor of our Miamisburg Methodist church was a Circuit Rider who traveled on horse to minister to other churches. Among the oldest churches near Dayton, Ohio, St James celebrated their 175th anniversary with a year of activities in 2013.

Our building is handicap accessible because our facilities are located on one floor.
We have 13 acres surrounding our facility with an outdoor chapel area. Our building is home to a Christian based child care center (infants through 5th grade) as well as a Christian based preschool. St James is a community of faith-based people who have great caring and giving hearts and spirits for persons outside the church walls and beyond. We believe that everyone should be given a chance to build closer, stronger relationships with God, and this is why we keep St James United Methodist Church’s doors open to all those who wish to worship.

People of all ages and walks of life are welcomed into our church – our doors are open to everyone. Our Sunday morning worship consists of blended music, heartfelt messages which focus on Jesus as Lord and Christian moments from the Pastor with the children. Casual dress is welcome. Our Lead Pastor is R. Stuart Rammes.

If you’re looking for churches in Miamisburg, Ohio as well as Springboro, Germantown or other neighboring areas in Ohio, come to St James United Methodist Church and you’ll be very happy you did.
