St. James Church has adopted Paularino Elementary School in Costa Mesa to bring the love of Christ to the children, staff and families. Opportunities include volunteering in the classroom as reading helpers, being part of the Good News Club team, caring for the teachers and staff with luncheons, goodie bags and other treats, and donating books to the library. We’ve completed several campus beautification projects and also host a Christ-centered Christmas Party on campus.
