Good morning friends and family of Emmanuel Church,

Sunday morning will be celebration of The Lord’s Supper along with worship.  The lesson comes from Luke 14:7-14 and the sermon title is “The U.S. Open.”  The sermon will deal with issues of poverty and wealth, openness and hospitality.  A cookout will follow with hot dogs provided.  Please bring a dish to pass and/or your favorite beverage to share.

Tuesday, September 3–we will begin our morning Bible Studies once again.  We meet at the church at 10 a.m. and will be studying the Gospel of Matthew.

Sunday, September 8th–Children who will be 12 as of next spring are invited to an informational Confirmation meeting after worship.  We will meet in the sanctuary.

Tickets are on sale now for our Invitational Event.  6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, September 18th at Hoss’ Restaurant, Murrysville.  For the tired and over-worked of us, the theme is “Taking Back Your Family’s Schedule.”  The program will give you tips on how to get your spiritual center in the midst of our fast paced life.  Tips and solutions will apply to all families, with children, without children, grandparents, and so on. Price is 30 dollars for two tickets, includes the evening meal and program.  Contact the pastor to get your tickets!

Grace and Peace,

Pastor Joseph

Let God be blest, be praised, and be thanked,
Who to us himself hath granted
This his own flesh and blood to feed and save us!
May we take right what he gave us:
Lord, be merciful to us.
By thy holy body dead in shame,
Lord, which from thy mother, Mary, came,
And by thy holy blood
Ease us, Lord, from all our load:
Lord, be merciful to us.

–George MacDonald, Scottish author, 1824-1905.
