Weekly Update–October 11, 2019

Dear Members and Friends of Emmanuel Church,

It’s a gorgeous autumn morning on God’s hill!

This Sunday is worship at 10:15 a.m.  We will be continuing the preaching series, “What’s in a Name?”  
I will be doing something I rarely have a chance to do this Sunday, I will be preaching one one whole book of the Bible.  The lesson this Sunday comes from the book of Ruth, which is four chapters long, so it makes for a compact sermon.  

After worship we are calling a quick congregational meeting to inform folks about some needed minor repairs.  The official congregational meeting for these repairs will be October 27th, 2019 after worship.  So please stick around this Sunday for a couple of moments. 

Sunday afternoon is the CROP walk starting at 1:30 p.m.  I will be walking, so please sponsor me in the name of Emmanuel Church.  Also, Sunday night at 6 p.m. is youth group.  

This Week at a glance:
