There are new sign-up sheets for July-December on the Flowers Board in the Coach House. Please take a moment to choose a Sunday or two to dedicate/donate flowers for our altar. It's a lovely way to celebrate or commemorate an occasion or a loved one while adding to the beauty of our sanctuary. If you have any questions, contact Nina at the office:
760-744-7667 or gracesmsecretary@gmail.com.
Now Taking Requests!

During our choir's summer break in July and August, we make a special effort to sing hymns and songs recommended by YOU! Please write your requests on the slips of paper found in the pews and place them in one of the canisters found at each door. You can also email your requests to Martha at cantejondo52@gmail.com.

Please note: More information about your choice(s) is better! Examples-hymn number, first line; title of song and author (if not in hymnal), etc. Be sure to include your name and contact info so Martha can reach you if there are any questions.

CASA Volunteers Wanted for
Voices for Children!

CASAs (Court Appointed Special Advocates) work one-on-one with a child or group of siblings. With the support of a CASA volunteer, children in foster care are more likely to succeed in school, receive vital services, and find a safe, permanent home. CASAs get to know the children, gather important information from reports and professionals, and advocate for the children's best interests.
Email us at volunteer@speakupnow.org or call (858) 598-2210 to learn more and sign up for a volunteer information session.
Weekly Eucharist and Bible Study 
Eucharist at 9:30 a.m. | Bible Study at 10:00 a.m.

We are currently studying the Minor Prophets.

Every Wednesday at 9:30 a.m. a small and faithful group gathers for weekly Eucharist.  At these services, we learn about our ancestors in the faith (using the saints' day calendar from A Great Cloud of Witnesses ) and we pray for all those on our parish prayer list by name.  

After the service (beginning at about 10:00 a.m.) we study scripture.
It is a free-wheeling sort of Bible study, with lots of time for questions and discussion. We talk about how the scripture applies to our daily lives. Please join us!
This is a FREE class!!
Please join us and bring your friends for this special and important outreach.  

Register on Eventbrite HERE or call/text 760-642-6457.
If you are interested in learning more about church safety and security, this is the perfect event for you!
