Marilyn Grau came to St. James in 2015. With a B.S. in Business from Indiana University and 30 years’ experience directing federal volunteer programs, she serves as secretary, newsletter editor, bookkeeper, rental agent, and 'Jack of All Trades' related to the church office. In a related position, she also serves as Vice President of Georgia PAUMCS (professional association for Methodist administrators).

Marilyn chairs the Outreach Committee at her own church, St. Paul’s (Episcopal), where she also sings in the choir. She enjoys making music with the Garden City Strummers Dulcimer Club and singing with the Harmony River Chorus of Sweet Adelines International. An avid tent camper, Marilyn served as a volunteer programmer and newsletter editor in four state parks for 15 years.

Anita Barnes came to St. James in 2023, having served as the pianist for Harlem United Methodist Church from 1996-2018, and at The Hill Baptist Church for approximately one and a half years.

Anita received her Bachelor’s degree in education (with an emphasis in music and math) from Shorter College before moving to Augusta, where she earned a Master’s degree in special education. After a 30-year teaching career, Anita retired from the Richmond County School System in 2020.

Raymond Hookfin

Sexton

Raymond Hookfin wears multiple hats at St. James, with jobs including (but not limited to) building manager, custodian, grounds keeper, and ministry leader.

On any given day, you may find Raymond setting up the altar for communion, distributing clothing and food to persons who are homeless, spreading mulch on the flowerbeds, or giving a church tour to a prospective bride.

Raymond came to Fort Gordon from New Orleans, LA in 1979, and stayed after his discharge from the U.S. Army. He joined the staff of St. James in 1986.
