Service Partner Activities


Christian Outreach of Lutherans mission is to give comprehensive assistance to families by reducing hunger and homelessness while encouraging personal growth and self-sufficiency. St. James steps in to assist by volunteering at their food pantry, working at the home sites and giving direct financial support. 


From monthly teacher lunches, to assisting at  the Food Pantry to students tutoring, St. James members interact and support North Chicago Community Partners with their mission to help address the academic challenges facing the children of North Chicago, an under-resourced community. 


St. James partners with PADS throughout the year by preparing monthly dinners and hosting PADS speakers to inform and update the congregation of the needs and successes of the organization. In addition the congregation provides  direct financial support. 


For over twenty years, St. James members and Habitat for Humanity have partnered together. We work with both the local affiliate as well as the larger organization volunteering at home sites from Lake County to other states near and far, lending a hand at the ReStore and with direct financial support.
