Happening Now at Saint James UMC
Sunday, April 15

Join the Encounter Service at 9:30am as we talk about 'Living on the Edge of Tension and Choice' with Pastor Spencer.  View previous messages here  

This series will raise questions like: Are you living on the edge or playing it safe? Are you  having an adventurous lifestyle and behaving in a manner that creates risks for yourself? Join us for a journey into the lives of five different biblical characters who experienced the best God had to offer them as they stepped out beyond the routine to live on the edge in a powerful, healthy and beautiful way. The good news is you can experience the excitement and adventure of living on the edge too! Join us April 8-May 6 at 9:30 & 11:00am services.
