Small Groups

St. James is a church rooted in relationships. From the rich history that exists, to the investments in the next generation, St. Jame is committed to ensuring we facilitate a place of community. A place of purpose. Most importantly, a place of faith.

There are a number of opportunities for members and friends of the St. James community to become engaged in groups providing a variety of options from learning and growing together.   **Due to COVID-19, Some information below may differ** Contact the office for the latest in a particular small group. 

St. James United Methodists for LGBTQ+ Full Inclusion- a Reconciling Community

We believe that God loves us all and we are all God's children. We affirm our similarities and our differences and believe, as disciples of Christ, we should love God and love our neighbors. With Open Hearts, we welcome everyone into full membership and ministry within our community. With Open Minds, we respect and affirm the dignity and sacred worth of all people. With Open Doors, we joyfully invite all to join us and become disciples of Jesus Christ, as we affirm and seek justice for people of all sexual orientations, gender identities, and gender expressions within our church, our neighborhood, in Atlanta, and throughout the world. If you’d like more information about our group, please contact Meredith Seelos at
