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.

Weekly Eucharist and Bible Study 
Wednesdays
Eucharist at 9:30 a.m. | Bible Study at 10:00 a.m.

We are currently studying the parables of Jesus.

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!
Remember:
Our Food Drive is Ongoing!

Please bring canned goods and non-perishables to Sunday services and leave them in the basket at the door. They will be blessed at the offering and passed on to those in need in our community.
