One of the biggest and most anticipated days on the St. James calendar is fast approaching! On Saturday, May 4th, the 10th Annual Red Carpet Affair, hosted by Special Connections, welcomes those living with disabilities, 16 years of age to ageless, to an incredible evening of music, dancing and more! We expect this to be our biggest event to date with more than 400 special needs guests! The Red Carpet Affair is St. James’ way of proclaiming in a loud, clear, and joyful voice that people with disabilities are heirs to the same calling and promise of God as their    non-disabled peers. You are loved and valuable. God is calling you to a community of good purpose. The Red Carpet Affair will be held in building 1 of St. James UMC.
