Share the Gift

of Roots and Wings

“But they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.”

Isaiah 40:31

God has blessed us for over a hundred and fifty years with a school to give young people roots in God’s Word and wings to deal with the challenges of life. We also provide a learning environment that is couched in the peace, hope and love of Jesus Christ! St. James still offers the best in Christian education in Chicago! We believe so strongly in our God given product that we want every family to benefit from it, regardless of financial status.

 In order to make this terrific education possible for everyone we provide financial aid to a number of families.  All together, last year we provided over $340,000 in financial aid. Much of this support comes from the generosity of the St. James community.  This month we hope to raise $125,000 towards that.

Please prayerfully consider sharing the gifts God has given you by donating to our scholarship fund.  Some of you can give a large amount, some small. Any gift helps.  May God bless your generosity and His Life Giving mission at St. James Church and school for many years to come!

 

“Plant your roots in Christ and let him be the foundation for your life.  Be strong in your faith, just as you were taught.  And be grateful.”

Colossians 2:7

What is the Goal of Share the Gift?

We have set a goal of $200,000. In fact, the value of tuition aid offered is much higher than that. When you generously support this effort, you directly impact the lives of others.

How much should I give?

You should determine your gift on the basis of prayer and reflection upon the blessings God has provided to you to use to His glory. Every gift is a personal decision and should be determined with a joyful heart that you are making an education possible for one of God’s children.
