It takes place between our two Sunday services, from 8:45-10:15. Beverages and food are provided. Please join us!

Reception for Lucy Dennison
After the 10:30 service on April 23, members of Emmanuel held a reception in honor of our secretary Lucy Dennison, on the occasion of her 25th anniversary of faithful, devoted service to our church. Two former rectors of our parish, Rev. Ed Covert and Rev. Jane Sigloh, joined us and shared warm memories of their years of working with Lucy. They and other church members attested to the many ways that Lucy helps keep our church functioning well.
Bleeding hearts were in bloom during the latter part of April.
WE PRAY FOR:
Mary Kay L.
For James R.missionary in Japan
NOTE: Please help the office by keeping us informed of the status of people you place on the prayer list.
