Welcome to Emmanuel United Church of Christ

Hi – This is usually Pastor Penny’s spot but since she’s away celebrating the 25th wedding anniversary of her son and daughter-in-law, Charlie and Lisa, I’m filling in. What a busy season so far. Rally Day was just awesome with the kids participating in the service. They were just bouncing with enthusiasm. It was a […]

Thank You!

TEAMeffort Staff Member Anna Charro sent a card to thank our youth and church for the Gatlinburg mission trip. Our youth brought some joy and protection to the Holder’s home by fixing their roof. Anna hopes that they will return next year. We received letters from Lancaster Theological Seminary, Bethany Children’s Home and Phoebe Devitt […]

This year will be great, starting with a terrific new program called LIVE (as in “LIV-ing”) plus NEW BIBLES to go with it!! We will be using the Hands-On Bible and that is exactly what it means – hands on. It’s filled with science experiments, crafts, snacks, Bible Hero Biographies, Fun Facts, FAQ’s and lots […]

Welcome to Emmanuel United Church of Christ

As you may know this letter is not really from my desk. It’s from my computer on my lap in the chair I’ve been in for about five days now when I wasn’t in the bed. I’ve been sick. Today I’m finally feeling better and hopefully I’ll be back to the church tomorrow. I heard […]

Thank You!

Thanks to everyone who donated their time and cooking/baking abilities to make the concert a memorable experience. The young adults of Re-Creation truly appreciated your hospitality. They look forward to coming back to perform here again.

Leah Deitrich sent us a card thanking everyone for the cards and get well wishes she received while in […]

Magazines for Nursing Homes

Cindy Heller is still collecting magazines for local nursing homes. You can leave them with her on Sunday mornings or on the table in the Narthex. Thanks for “recycling” your magazines by giving them to others to enjoy.

Picture Perfect

Check the front entrance bulletin board for the following pictures:

Re-Creation is pictured performing their show at Emmanuel. They were sensational and everyone who attended the performance agreed that they would love to hear them again (which may happen since the members of the cast liked performing here.) The kids were all geared up to […]
