Congregational Care Ministry

Congregational Care Ministry is a loving extension of the St. James family, the Body of Christ--designed to bring the Compassion of Christ into difficult situations.

We visit homebound members, offer Home Communion, and visit those who just cannot get out much. If you’re having surgery, someone will meet you and pray with you before you go into surgery. If you are admitted to the hospital, someone will visit you each weekday you are there.

If there is a death in your immediate family, Pastor Bill Curington and Rev. Bill Emerson will arrange to visit you. We will spend time with you, and help personalize the funeral or memorial service. During this visit, we will give you a brochure explaining the options for a small reception following the funeral.

For more information, email Rev. Bill Emerson: bemerson@sjumc.org or call the church office 706-548-1680.
