St. John's annual fund

We have been blessed with an amazing opportunity!

 

Before Thanksgiving 2017, we received a gift to match up to $50,000 from Doy Henley. Now we have received a second $50,000 match from the Nadeau Family! We thank God for their generosity!

 

Now every dollar you give to the Annual Fund will be matched TWICE. Will you help us meet our goal?

 

We have until December 31, 2017 to grab this opportunity. We have raised $26,000, and need to raise the remaining $24,000 to receive the full amount of both $50,000 matching gifts. Here's the math: if we raise $50k, we have TWO donors willing to match that, effectively tripling our donations. We're only $24k away from that goal. We are SO CLOSE! Every dollar you give goes to support equipping the STEM Lab, as well as enhancing instruction for all students. Please help our students achieve this opportunity!

  • STEAM Fund

    In 2018, construction will begin on a dedicated STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) Lab, bringing endless possibilities for educating St. John's students. The STEM Lab will include a Makerspace, #D Printing Lab, and instructional space for science and technology. 

     

    Across the hall is our newly-dedicated music room, which will complete a full STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) corridor at St. John's! We will be the only school in Orange County to have a dedicated STEAM corridor with opportunities for Kindergarten through 8th grade students to fully experience 21st century learning! 


    The STEM Lab is going to be awesome.

     

    Makerspace

    What is a Makerspace? It's a place in which people with shared interests, especially in computing or technology, can gather to work on projects while sharing ideas, equipment, and knowledge. It's a creative hub of student energy!

     

    3D Printing Lab

    St. John's students have already been experimenting with our four 3D printers, creating items and using their imaginations. Having a dedicated space for this will only increase our capabilities and the student's involvement in the process.

     

    Instructional Space for Science and Technology

    Educational Technologist Sarah Grack is already planning exciting projects and programs to utilize the STEM Lab and bring fun hands-on experiences to the students of St. John's.

  • Serving others with our lives, in the end, 

    is a matter of the heart

    Jesus is concerned with what we do with our words, service and resources because he is concerned about where our hearts are. The reality is that when we SHARE Christ our hearts are in the right place and we are becoming more and more like Christ.

     

    You have influence among those around you: family, friends, neighbors, coworkers, community members, etc… God has placed these people in your path that you might be his representative, a messenger of his grace and mercy. It is important for you to know that God has empowered you with His Holy Spirit; He has trusted you and He will work through you to influence his children around you.

     

    The Bible talks a lot about money and resources. Some 25% of Jesus’ words in the Gospels are related to the topic of worldly resources and the proper stewardship of them. Why? Because money is a critical component to the health and growth of God’s people. But, due to its role in our lives, it’s nearly impossible for us to separate the connection that money has to our hearts. Therefore, wealth and possessions are prime targets for idolatry. God desires that we live a life of generosity.
