St. James is dedicated to growing & engaging young adults in practical ways. Our Velocity Youth ministry gets “real” with students grades 7-12 by addressing the issues of day to day teenage life through solid programming and exciting group discussion. Based on Philippians 3:14, we're "off running, and we're not turning back."

 Sunday Programming

11am -  Middle school students (grades 7-8) meet for a time of study & discussion, while high school students (grades 9-12) are encouraged to attend the main worship service in the Sanctuary.

6:30-8:30pm- Students (grades 7-12) gather to experience awesome games, great food, music led by their peers, relevant messages and more!
*One Sunday each month we offer “Feed Your Faith” nights. On these nights students have some hangout time and then share a FREE full meal together and spend time in fellowship. Afterwards, there will be a small devotional, message, or performance from a guest speaker (HS student, MS student, Adult Volunteer, parent…etc.)
