We have a couple of general but important items to let you know about:

January’s “Just One Thing Initiative” focuses on our neighbors who live outside. We’re gathering sleeping bags and ground cover items such as yoga mats, camping mats, and even those ubiquitous blue tarps. Please drop your donations in the Narthex collection box. Thank you.

January is open enrollment month for our precious Festival Singers! The Festival Singers of Orange County, a community chorus active since 1982, invites singers to join them for their 37th season of “Sharing the Joy of Music.” Members come from all parts of the community and enjoy participating in this traditional four part (soprano, alto, tenor, bass) choral group. All styles of music are performed, from Bach (the classics) to Broadway (show tunes as well as pop, folk, and patriotic arrangements). Rehearsals for our March concert begin this Tuesday, January 7 and are every Tuesday, 7:30-9:30 p.m. right here at St. John’s Church. Additional information can be found on The Festival Singers website, www.festivalsingers.net. While formal auditions are not held, a short meeting will be held with the director to determine voice part.

See you at St. John’s!
