Weekly Update–November 16, 2012

Hello Friends and Members of Emmanuel Reformed Church,

This past Tuesday we had the Funeral Service for James Karp at Wolfe-von Geis Funeral Home and Twin Valley Memorial Park, Delmont.  Please keep his family in your prayers.  You can find his obituary here. 

Tuesday afternoon was the memorial service at Redstone Highlands for Molly Moose.

On November 11, at 10:10 p.m., Heather Dulaney gave birth to Aria Lynn!  She was 6 pounds 7 ounces and 18 inches long.  Praise God that both mommy and baby are healthy!!!

This Sunday is the last Sunday that we will be collecting for the Food Bank and our worship will be a Thanksgiving Themed worship.  The Sunday School has a special event planned during worship, as well as our noisy collection.  The sermon is called “The Power of Giving Thanks.”

Wishing you a healthy and safe Thanksgiving Week.  Blessings from Emmanuel Reformed Church to your family!

Grace and Peace,

Pastor Joseph

O Most merciful Father, which of thy gracious goodness hast heard the devout prayers of thy church, and turned our dearth and scarcity into cheapnesse and plenty: we giue thee humble thankes for this thy special bounty, beseeching thee to continue this thy louing kindnes unto vs, that our land may yeild vs her fruits of increase, to thy glory and our comfort, through Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen.–A Prayer for Thanksgiving, Book of Common Prayer, original language of 1549.
