St Johns Chrysostom Church, Rancho Santa Margarita, CA

Attention, St. Johns men! This Saturday, February 16, court is in session in the Cardinal Gym at 6:30 a.m.! Bring your best game to the basketball court — all are welcome; participants come from all churches, work places, and neighborhoods. This is a great group of men who share a love of basketball,  and you are most welcome to join in. Come on down!
Youre aware St. Johns Church is in search of an organist and choirmaster? For the past many months weve enjoyed the ministry of Gary and Marjie Toops — Marjie singing in the choir, and Gary so ably stepping into the role of interim organist and choirmaster. Last Sunday Gary and Marjie fulfilled their commitment to St. Johns, and now, for the next three Sundays, Daniel Lozier returns to St. Johns to help out. In the meantime the search committee is working hard to find our next organist and choirmaster, so lets pray for the search committee as well as for the person God will bring to our congregation.

Let us pray.
O God, saints and angels delight to worship You in heaven: Be ever present with our search committee members as they sift through applications to find the right person for St. Johns. We pray also for all of Your servants who seek through art and music to perfect the praises offered by your people on earth; please grant them even now — and especially the person who will be called to St. Johns — glimpses of Your beauty, and make them worthy at length to behold it unveiled for evermore; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

This pic from Advent Lessons and Carols is a bonus for me as it reflects my son Josh and granddaughter Allison in the front row seated next to Rev Karen.😍

We are so grateful for the beautiful gift of Gary and Marjie's presence with us.

One Thing Initiative is a monthly opportunity sponsored by the St. Johns women’s ministry. Each month the group announces one small thing we all can do or give to help those in need in our community. In February were collecting mens belts and/or unisex gloves (new or gently used). Many of our homeless neighbors keep up their pants with duct tape, string, rope, or other things. Also, with the temperatures dropping at night, gloves are critical. A box to collect the donations is in the Narthex. Thank you for your generosity!

Lets pray this week for respite from the busy-ness of our lives, and for the opportunity to seek and bask in Gods presence. Mondays here, the traditional work/school week stretches before us. Before your week gets packed with meetings, tests, drop-offs and pickups, plan now, at this moment, to spend time in Gods presence each day. It could be 5 minutes, or 15, 30 or more minutes. It will be time well spent, thats certain.

Let us pray.
O God of peace, You have taught us that in returning and rest we shall be saved, and that quietness and confidence will be our strength: By the might of Your Spirit lift us — we pray to You — to Your presence, where we may be still and know that You are God; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
