The New Devotional Guide

St. James UMC will continuing the publication of devotions beyond Easter.  The new Devotional Guide will be available only in an online format—posted to Facebook on the St. James UMC page and sent as an email.


The writing of our fellow members in the Lent Devotional Guide has provided comfort and has been a source of encouragement.  It has given our writers a way to express their experiences of faith.  Therefore, we want to continue publishing devotions, hoping readers will continue to gain solace and draw inspiration from the writing of fellow members of St. James UMC.


Daily devotions will be published online through the seven weeks of Easter to Pentecost, then possibly through the 25 Sundays after Pentecost, during what the church calls Ordinary Time. Perhaps we will end in the early fall as, we hope, we actually do return to “ordinary time.”  

We will keep sending the devotions via email to those who signed up for that delivery option for the Lent Devotional Guide.  For those of you who did not those that option previously and would like to receive the devotions via email, please register here: ​
