Thursday Morning Update–May 12, 2011

Dear Friends of Emmanuel Church,

Things are busy around here and I’d like to highlight a few events coming up in
the next couple of weeks:

This Sunday, May 15th is Good Shepherd Sunday and the scripture comes from Psalm
23 and John 10. Special music will be provided by Shawn Hanks and Pastor
Joseph.

Tuesday, May 17th is MOOK Group (Meaningfully Obeying Our King) at 7 p.m. at the
Norwalk Daily Grind. All are welcome to this free-form Bible Study/Discussion
Group.

Sunday, May 22 is the Baptism of Ella Rayn Lucas at 10:15 a.m. After that
service, you are invited to stay and/or bring a covered dish to celebrate with
the Lucas family. The Youth will meet in the pastor’s office to look at
schedules for the summer–also after worship.

On Monday, May 30th, Memorial Day, we will be part of the remembrance of
veterans by having a short service in our cemetery at about 9 a.m. There will
be an honor guard and gun salute.

June 5th is Graduation and Educators Sunday. You will be asked to invite
someone who taught you something to this service. We will celebrate the
ministries of learning and teaching. After worship that Sunday will be the
covered dish, as well as a stewardship meeting for all interested parties.

June 12th is Pentecost with Communion.

Father’s Day/Choir Appreciation is June 19th.

Emmanuel’s 191st Homecoming Service is on June 26th, 2011.

Grace and Peace,

Pastor Joseph
