Dear FPCSA Family & Friends,
Another difficult week in the life of our community and our nation. We pray for God’s peace. In response to the unrest in our country, we are hosting a PRAYER VIGIL in our FPCSA parking lot tonight (6/4) at 6:30 p.m. for the Christian churches in Santa Ana. Representatives from Templo Calvario, Calvary Santa Ana, New Song, and other Santa Ana churches will be there. If you would like to come, please park on the street or in a city parking structure, wear a mask, and maintain safe, social-distancing. We’ll try to live stream the event on our Facebook page.
Quietly, this past week, our facility custodian, Kim Curteman, passed a milestone in her tenure here at FPCSA. She celebrated her 20th year anniversary with the church on June 1st. Thank you Kim for all the loving care and momma-bear protection you bring to our facility and to our members. We love you! And we hope you know how much we appreciate you.
In keeping with the idea of transitions, I received an email from the Rev. Lissa Smith at Canyon Hills Presbyterian Church in Anaheim Hills alerting me to the fact that Lee Massie is moving to Utah next month. Lee served as the organist/pianist and sometimes flutist at FPCSA for many, many years. He was deeply appreciated and dearly loved. He left FPCSA to serve CHPC several years ago but has remained a good friend to many of us. Lee is moving to Utah to be closer to family.
Terrie Park needs groceries. Is anyone available to purchase and deliver them (we can reimburse you)? If so, please reply to this email.
Finally, this Sunday will be the last sermon in the Quarantina series. It is also Trinity Sunday and it is the first Sunday of the month, so we will be celebrating birthdays and anniversaries and the Lord’s Supper together. Please remember to have bread and cup ready for the communion celebration of the live-stream worship service this Sunday (6/7). The title of my message is NOAH: 40 Days to New Beginnings.
Hope to “see” you there!
In Christ’s love & service,
Rev. Dr. Lance E. Allen, D. MinFirst Presbyterian Church Santa Ana
