Home // Giving at St. James United Church


St. James United Church is made up of many volunteers who give countless hours of their free time but, as a nonprofit charitable organization, we also depend on financial generosity to carry out God's mission of love and compassion in the community and around the world.

Legacy Giving

So many of our blessings, including our church, have been provided for us by those who have gone before. Now it’s our turn. Legacy giving is an opportunity to help ensure that St. James United Church will have adequate resources for those who come after us.
