St. James Church offers a variety of opportunities for youth to be involved in the life and worship of our congregation. Besides the weekly programs listed below, youth serve on committees, volunteer in mission work, and participate in church activities throughout the year.
Help Support the Youth Mission Trip!
On June 8, 2013 the Youth Ministry will be holding a Golf Outing at the Danville Country Club to benefit the annual Youth Mission Trip. All proceeds will go to the upcoming and future mission trips. I would like to ask the St. James and Danville communities to support our youth in two ways:
The first is by playing in the event itself. Golf will start at 1:15pm, with registration from 11:00am – 12:00pm. Lunch will be served at 12:00pm Noon. The fee for the event is $75.00 per player which includes green fees, cart, and lunch. Prizes include: $10,000 Hole-In-One, Closest to the Hole – Longest Drive, Team Low Gross and Low Net Skins. The outing will be a Scramble format with 4-person teams. If you do not enter a team list you will be placed with other single entry participants.
The second in supporting the youth is by considering sponsoring a hole/tee at the event. This sponsorship can be done by business or families. All sponsors will have their business/family name on a sign at a hole/tee, and will be acknowledged during the Luncheon following the event. Sponsorships can be split between two families. Sponsorships are $500 Gold Level, $250 Silver Level, and $100 Bronze Level. Sponsorships are the backbone of making the event a success so please consider this opportunity!
Both Golf Outing Entry Forms and Hole/Tee Sponsorship Forms are available on the following links:

Youth 6th grade through 12th grade are able to participate in our youth group. Our youth group meets once a week during the school year where we have a devotion and have fun playing games including dodge ball, sardines, ping-pong. There is a part-time youth director that plans the activities for our youth. We do various fun activities throughout the year including ski trips, amusement parks, swimming, canoeing. Every summer high school aged youth may attend a mission trip to Appalachia. The youth also help with local missions including Habitat for Humanity and Faith in Action. Our youth participated in various fundraisers that including pancake breakfasts, Pumpkin Patches, and more.
