See What’s Going on at Emmanuel and in Our Community!
Christmas brings us the opportunity to thank God for the blessings and special people in our lives and to remember loved ones by making a special contribution to the Flower Guild which depends entirely on these gifts to purchase the flowers and greens that grace our church at Christmas. Please place your offering in the special envelope provided in the Sunday bulletin or mail your check to the church office along with a note that lists: your name, the name of the person being honored, and designate “in honor, in memory or in thanksgiving”. Offerings will be listed in the Christmas bulletin. Any amount is appreciated.
December Outreach. Please drop by the outreach table at the Advent Festival Sunday December 2nd to purchase a few goodies and support our outreach efforts. We will also have Angel tree tags of needed items for students at Audubon elementary school (APS). APS angel tree Items are due back to Emmanuel on December 9 so we have a short turn around time. We also need items for our Salvation Army Women’s Shelter Project. We need nice large bath puff puffs, individual toothpaste and toothbrushes, new towels and wash cloths (no hand towels), and for the kids, pillows with a kid friendly pillow case and small rolled Christmas blankets (Walmart has nice ones that very reasonable). Items for the Salvation Army are due back at Emmanuel no later than December 23.
