Community

St. James makes its space available to non-profit organizations and special needs as a community resource in the Fairhaven neighborhood. Generally we charge a small use fee to reimburse some of our actual costs. The fee is applied by the Building and Grounds Committee.  The church secretary keeps the calendar and she is the contact for requests: (360) 733-1325, Tuesday though Friday from 9 am to 2 pm. All current groups and their meeting dates and times are listed below. Use request forms are available under Contact Us.
 

Our motto is "music self played is happiness self made", and the ukulele is just about the happiest instrument in the world. The Bellingham Ukulele Group (BUG) meets at St James downstairs in the big hall on the first Saturday of the month. (September will be the 2nd Saturday because of the holiday). Our regular meeting is from 3:00 to 5:00 and we have a beginners introductory session at 2:00 for people who want to get started on the ukulele. We have loaner ukuleles so you can come and try one out. We ask for a small donation to cover the cost of the room.  BUG meetings are open to any one who would like to strum and sing and have a lot of fun.

Check out our website - but be careful, playing ukulele can be addictive and you may catch the BUG.

If you want to talk to someone, you can call 733-6867, or 647-5259.

Classes start September 24, 2012 from 9AM to 1 PM meets daily Monday through Friday. For information call: 360-510-7574
The Children's Co-op Preschool is a parent cooperative first organized by Whatcom Community College several decades ago and housed at St. James Presbyterian Church.
