Adult Discipleship

Our discipleship model centers around our gathering together each Sunday morning to adore the triune God, hear from Him through the Word and Sacraments, share in Christian fellowship, and be sent out as disciples of Jesus, people He calls “the light of the world.” 

Adults are provided with multiple opportunities for learning, fellowship, and exploration of faith. Our goal is to encourage and enable every adult at St. James to be part of a group that helps them feel supported, while challenging them to grow spiritually. We offer meaningful opportunities to deepen our walk with Christ through our discipleship hour, classes, small groups, Bible studies, retreats & seminars!

Read below for more opportunities for discipleship, including our Discipleship Hour and our Bible Studies.

Discipleship Hour

Young Adult Ministry

The Young Adult’s at St. James are forming a beautiful community built on Jesus by:

Reaching Up

Every Sunday we join everyone in our worshipping community to exalt the triune God: Father, Son, and Spirit at our worship services at 8:45 and 11:00 am.

Reaching In

We gather bi-monthly to “stir up one another toward love and good works,” (Hebrews 10:24). Here we worship together, pray together, and explore what authentic Christian community looks like and how we can walk it out. We strive to do life together in an authentic, transformative Christian community that heals us and advances the Kingdom.

Reaching Out

On the weeks we’re not meeting together we intentionally find ways to love our neighbors. Some of us host dinners for the families that live on each side of us, some of us help tutor kids at our apartment complex – the idea is to simply reach out to the people immediately around us that they may “taste and see that the Lord is good,” (Psalm 34:8). The possibilities are endless!

Current happenings are distributed via the Young Adults Ministry email list.
