Weekly Update–August 14, 2014

Good morning friends and members of Emmanuel Church,

There are quite a few things going on at church!  We need you to get active, to find meaning, to recharge . . . Here are some opportunities to see what God is doing in our community and to refresh yourself:

Saturday, August 16th is our next 10-10-10 Invitational Event:  We will meet at 10 a.m. in the church sanctuary to talk about our relationship with God and the community.  It will be a refreshing time for all.  Afterwards, there will be an optional time for lunch at a local restaurant.

Sunday, August 17th is our weekly worship.  We will be collecting the Noisy Collection for the Children’s Ministry of the Church and the message will be based on Genesis 45, the story of Joseph and his brothers.  The message is entitled “Children, Go Where I Send Thee.”  We are also collecting for St. Paul’s Homes (prizes, personal items, word book puzzles and so on).  and for the Blackburn Center–paper products.  Thank you in advance!

Tuesday, August 19th at 6 p.m., we have called a meeting to plan our 2014 “Fall Festival/Halloween Party” which will be on October 25 from 1-4 p.m. The theme this year is a block party, so we need some ideas of traditonal block party activities.  Come along to the planning meeting and we will get pizza!

Sunday, August 24th is our 2014 Prayer Walk at the High School Complex.  We will meet at the Franklin Regional High School Parking lot at 1:45 p.m.  The walk should take about 1 hour.  Please feel free to invite neighbors/friends or relatives.

Blessing of the Backpacks will occur in worship on September 7th at 10:15 a.m.  

An organizational meeting for all Youth of the church will occur on September 7 at 6 p.m.

Acolyte Training will be on September 14th after worship.  

Grace and Peace,

Pastor Joseph
