Dear Friends and Members of Emmanuel Church,

It is a beautiful morning up on God’s hill!  And there’s lots to report as we are in the final Sunday before the Lenten Season begins.

Sunday’s Worship at 10:15 narrates the amazing story of Jesus bringing life to Lazarus , who had been dead in the tomb for four days (John 11)!
