St Johns Chrysostom Church, Rancho Santa Margarita, CA

This weekend, at all three worship services, well bring our 2019 pledge cards forward to the altar and place them in the basket. Its an exciting part of the service as individuals, and sometimes entire families, make their way to the altar to offer their pledges to financially support the mission and ministry of St. Johns Church.

If you havent yet completed your pledge card, please set aside time to do so. And if you havent had a chance to watch the fantastic movie Because You Give . . . , youll find it through the link below. Youll get to hear St. Johns lay members and priests, in their own words, share why the ministry done at St. Johns Church is so important to the church family and to the greater community. https://www.stjohnsrsm.org/…/2019-Stewardship-Presentation.…

Lets pray!
Almighty and everliving God, ruler of all things in heaven
and earth, as we approach this important weekend in the life of St. Johns, hear our prayers for the hopes and plans we have for the life, mission, and ministry of our church. Bring
us all to be of one heart and mind within your holy Church;
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Church members, thanks to your generosity and hard work, 272 neighbors in need will each receive a grocery bag filled with fixings to help make a tasty and filling Thanksgiving dinner. It is not a stretch to say if not for you, it would be just another Thursday for many families.  Thank you, thank you, thank you for pitching in!

Next up is giving it all away — and that happens Thursday, November 15 at the RSM Cares Food Pantry gathering, held at The Bridge Church, 30162 Tomas, RSM, starting at Noon. 

Come at Noon to help organize the groceries, stay to help our neighbors receive their groceries. The Food Pantry is behind the building, ample parking is available.

Thanksgiving food drive update!

Thanks to this great group of volunteers, we’re at 140 bags as of this morning! Our goal is 220 bags — so we’re just 80 bags shy of our very do-able goal. Feel free to drop a bag or two by today if you can help. There is still time to pitch in!

Bags may be dropped at St. Johns, or at Roger and Joanne Bradshaws home at 8 Alamitos in Foothill Ranch. Come on by their home today or Wednesday this week to sort and stuff bags. Thanks!

Be sure to give Ruby and Penny a few pats as they are very good dog-helpers. #Vizslas #thanksgivingspirit #220bagsorbust

Well post another update late Tuesday! BRING IN THOSE FOOD BAGS!
Make plans now for Thanksgiving Eve, Wednesday, November 21 when we gather as a church family at 6:30 p.m. to give thanks for life’s blessings before the Thanksgiving holiday. We’ll begin with Holy Eucharist in the Church followed by a pizza dinner in the Cardinal Gym. Sign-ups for the pizza dinner continue in the Narthex. This is a really fun evening, so set the date in stone now!
Thanksgiving Food Drive UPDATE!

Last year the good people of St. John’s, Community Lutheran, the Church of the Latter Day Saints of RSM and our neighbors in Foothill Ranch created 220 food bags for our neighbors in need! 

This is a TREMENDOUS achievement, but we expect *at least* that many families to need our help this year. If you can put together a bag or two or four through Wednesday, it will be greatly appreciated! THE 2018 GOAL IS AGAIN 220 BAGS; AS OF THIS MORNING WE ARE AT 84 BAGS. Thats 136 bags to go! We can do this!

Bags may be dropped at St. Johns, or at Roger and Joanne Bradshaws home at 8 Alamitos in Foothill Ranch. Come on by their home Tuesday or Wednesday this week to sort and stuff bags. Thanks!

Before you go, check out the trunk-load of goods dropped off by Timothy England and Dina Cuba! Way to go, guys! #thanksgivingspirit #220bagsorbust
