St Johns Chrysostom Church, Rancho Santa Margarita, CA

As our Youth Group retreats this weekend with the amazing adult leadership team, please keep all in prayer for travel mercies, good health, open hearts and minds, and the opportunity to relax and veg!
A wonderful new support group begins this Thursday, January 17 at St. Johns. If you or someone you know is dealing with experiences that have caused you pain or loss, the Grief, Gratitude, Growth support group may be for you. This is an open group, designed for anyone who is grieving a loss, including the loss of a loved one, a job, or a marriage. There are many life experiences which cause us pain, and this group is open to anyone who needs a place to express grief and receive the support of loving, compassionate friends who will listen to, and pray for one another.

The group meets at 10:15 a.m. in the Bride’s Room located in the Church entryway.  Questions? Contact Rev. Karen, 949.888.4595, x239 or kmaurer@stjohns-es.org. All are welcome to join at anytime. We meet every other week. Meetings for the next four sessions are January 31, February 2 and 14, and March 14.
Were praying this week for all who serve in law enforcement, as well as for our military women and men. 

Let us pray.
Almighty God, we commend to your gracious care and keeping all the men and women of our law enforcement agencies, and armed forces at home and abroad. Defend them day by day with your heavenly grace; strengthen them in their trials and temptations; give them courage to face the perils which beset them; and grant them a sense of your abiding presence wherever they may be; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Were mentioning this again, because its important. To all who turned in their 2019 pledge cards — thank you! We’ve received 114, but have a ways to go! 

Your Facebook Correspondent recently joined St. Johns. Im so grateful to be part of a church where *everyone* is welcomed and embraced. St. Johns is an oasis in what is often a chaotic world. It is a pleasure to make a financial commitment to this church because I know the hearts of our leadership, and their shared desire to make known the Good News in our community.

If you haven’t had a chance to complete your 2019 pledge, now is the time! We are encouraging 100% participation, *regardless of the amount pledged*. Pledge cards are on the Narthex counter. Simply fill it out and drop it in the offering basin. Or, if you prefer, call Cindy in the Church Office, 949.888.4534, to secure your pledge over the phone or send her an email, cdrennan@stjohns-es.org. Thank you all for your support of St. John’s!
