This is the season of Epiphany! May
the light of Christ continue to shine in your life, revealing his love
and granting the epiphanies you need for the journey.

Two Letters of Invitation!
Hi Father Rob,
I will be holding a Safeguarding God's People class on Sunday February
28 from noon to 4 (It probably will not run that long) at St. Andrew's.
If you have new Vestry members or other parishioners who need the class,
please have them call (714-879-4350) or email (firstname.lastname@example.org) Minerva at St. Andrew's to register. Or they can email or call me (714-879-7168).

is especially for those who would like to bring communion to the sick
or work with children, and have not received the Safeguarding God's
People training (formerly called "Making the Church a Safe Place")]
Bus Trip Enthusiasts,
Just wanted to give you some preliminary information on our next bus
trip. We're planning a bus trip to Exposition Park on Saturday,
June 4. We'll leave Emmanuel at 9:00am and return around 4:00.
At Exposition Park there is the Rose Garden (should be beautiful in
early June), Natural History Museum($), California Science Center,
African American Museum($)
and IMAX Theater($). The USC campus
is nearby. The cost of the bus trip is $20 per person (under 12
free) and does not include entrance to any of the ($) exhibits. So
mark this date on your calendar. We'll have more
details in March and start taking reservations then.
Tours by Emmanuel
be to God for the Emmanuel Garden! Here is a photo of the Bishop's
garden along with a big "thank you!" to Karen Elise and Bill Almstedt
for taking care of the garden, and for Dave Nicholson and Deborah
Cantwell who created the sign!
Fr. Rob and Mo. Lyn
a wonderful Outreach Committee meeting and Emmanuel Garden meeting
after last Sunday's services. Thanks be to God for all the support and
care for these two vital areas of ministry!
was so wonderful to go back "HOME" on Sunday. We miss you
all so much and the love and peace that makes Emmanual so special.
Yes, it is "Crowded with Jesus"
