Weekly Update — July 29, 2018 — The Modern Psalm


Good morning friends and Members of Emmanuel Church,

It’s an overcast morning on God’s hill!

Sunday, July 29th marks the last Sunday of the month but also a new theme in worship.  We will begin a series on the book of Psalms called: The Modern Psalm.  It will last through August 26th and will look at our life from all sides–in the book of Psalms there is every human emotion; grief, anger, praise, hope, praise, love, loss, worry, concern and joy.  We will discuss how to deal with emotions using the Book of Psalms during this series.

Looking ahead:  Wednesday Evening is the Prayer Angels at 7 p.m.  We will pray for 2 blanket recipients and will make 2 blankets, as well as pray for the congregation.

Next SundayAugust 5:  Holy Communion and The Modern Psalm.

Wednesday, August 8th:  Consistory at 7 p.m.

Wednesday August 15th at 7 p.m.: Confirmation 2018-2019 organizational meeting for Confirmation youth and their parents.  (12 years old by May of 2019 is the recommended age)

Grace and Peace,

Pastor Joseph
