New Children’s Ministry Director

New Children’s Ministry Director

I am absolutely thrilled to announce we have filled the position for our Director of Children’s Ministry.  Yay!

Sandra Escoto begins this Sunday!  For the past year, Sandra has been Assistant Program Director of our after-school tutoring program: La Semilla Learning Center.  She is a Santa Ana native and fully bilingual.  She comes highly recommended.  On Sunday, March 1st, we’ll highlight her in the Family First Sunday worship service and have a welcoming reception for her in the gallery after the service, followed by a time for Q&A with parents in the Creativity Center.  Thanks be to God for answering our prayers!  I invite you to introduce yourself to Sandra and pray for her, for our children, and for the ministry of First Presbyterian Church.

Mark your calendars for Ash Wednesday.  Our service is so different and powerfully meaningful for all those who attend.  The Psalmist reminds us, “Be still and know that I am God.” (Ps. 46:10)  But how often do we quiet ourselves and rest in God.  Ash Wednesday is a time to be still, to meditate on God’s word, to pray, and to listen for God’s still, small voice.  Ash Wednesday is February 26th any time (open door) from 5:00 to 7:30 p.m.  All are welcome!

May God richly bless you, even as He blesses others through you!

For those who might be interested, I’ll be the keynote speaker at the next Presbytery meeting.  This will be much different from what I presented after my hooding last June.  For more information, follow the link:
