Chapel Offerings

St James helps instill the spirit of giving in each child's heart by supporting different local organizations each month. Please consider giving a quarter every Wednesday.  A little bit of change can really make a difference.  Thank you!

    The women’s shelter gives support to women during difficult times.  We collected hats, gloves, mittens, and scarves for the children and women the YWCA supports.
  • Heifer Project
    There are many people in the world who are hungry.  Through Heifer International we purchased a cow that would produce milk for a family in another country.  The family was able to sell milk to make money.  That money was used to send children to school. The cow’s calf was given to another family in the village.  One cow made a big difference in a community!  Each cow costs $500. 
  • Worship for the Shut-ins
    Worship for the Shut-ins is a 30 minute Lutheran television worship service.  The service is taped in Ft. Wayne and can be seen in 12 states.  People in the Lafayette area are able to enjoy this service through cable television.
