I serve as an usher with my 12 year old daughter - it's a great opportunity to participate in the service and help others!

This weeks prayer is for St. Johns Church! If youve glanced at this weeks Weekly Reminder post, theres a lot on deck in the next seven days. Lets keep in prayer our own this week, that all may be buoyed for family and job responsibilities, ministry opportunities, and imbued with wisdom for all situations which cross our paths.

Let us pray.
Almighty and everlasting God, from whom comes every good and perfect gift: Send down upon our bishops, clergy — and our own vicar and associate vicar — and upon the congregations committed to their charge, the healthful Spirit of Your grace: and, that they may truly please You, pour upon them the continual dew of Your blessing. Grant this, O Lord, for the honor of our Advocate and Mediator, Jesus Christ. Amen.Image attachmentImage attachment

Heres the Fall newsletter for our fabulous Youth Group! St. Johns Youth Group is open to kids from other schools — if you have friends with kids not involved at St. Johns, let em know! Youth Pastor Patti Peebles and her team of adult volunteers would love to speak with your friends. Give Mrs. Patti a call at 949.888.4536 or via sjecyouthgroup@gmail.com.
For this weeks prayer, were looking at relationships and friendships — whether close and nurturing, or distant and tense. Did one in particular come immediately to mind when you started reading todays post? If you have an abiding friendship, thanks be to God! If you have a friendship or relationship that could use some work, todays prayer works for that as well. Todays post may prompt you to call a loved one and make a coffee date, or you may feel the need to pray  about a fraught relationship. Either way, step forward knowing that the God who created each one of us is with us on our journeys.

Lets pray.
Direct us, O Lord, in all our doings with Your most gracious favor, and further us with Your continual help; that in all our works begun, continued, and ended in You, we may glorify Your holy Name, and finally, by Your mercy, obtain everlasting life; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
