The mission of the Welcoming & Hospitality Ministry is to ensure that all members, visitors and newcomers feel welcomed at St. James. We want all to feel comfortable during worship and to experience God’s gracious hospitality through fellowship and a variety of ongoing programs (Sunday hospitality and clean-up, assemble newcomer welcome packets, write notes to visitors), annual events (Shrove Tuesday pancake supper, Habitat for St. James buffet, Annual Meeting luncheon) and special celebrations (receptions for baptisms, celebrations of life, confirmations, recitals etc.).

If you are interested in serving in this wonderful ministry, please contact the church office at or (480)345-2686.
