Welcome to Emmanuel United Church of Christ

Summer is drawing to a close and it’s time to settle in to a routine. Our September starts off with a bang with “Rally Day” to officially start Sunday School, Re-Creation, and Singspiration. We have been blessed with five new members this summer and plan to welcome more in the fall. God has truly blessed […]

Thank You!

Thank you to everyone who donated to the VBS Mission, Go Joe 16. We received a thank you email from Joe Snedeker in which Joe encourages us to “Shine On!” I am really grateful to be part of such a generous faithcommunity family.

1st Annual Golf Tournament August 9, 2013

Thanks to everyone who helped made our first golf tournament a success. We had a great time between the raindrops, which basically held off until the tournament was almost done. The dinner was delicious and we all had fun awarding the prizes.


Thanks again to everyone who helped out with this fantastic fundraiser. Included below is the report of our profit which was a combined total of $7,838.14!!! As many of our guests said:

Holleman will not be filled, their secretary has been reduced to part-time and a part-time position which is […]

Youth Group is Back in Gear

Our next meeting will be on September 22. We need to decide when we will have our sleepover in October. We can also start talking about our Christmas fundraisers, but we can make a final decision at the sleepover. Suggestions for fundraisers were our usual Christmas cookie sale (which goes really well) and making ornaments […]

No Cost Fundraiser

Thanks to everyone who buys Weis or Carone’s cards. We appreciate all your support. See Marc or Denise or let a Youth Group member know if you want some more!

Nursery News

The nursery is getting a facelift and, in the process, some unused items are being found. Some really nice children’s chairs are in the Narthex looking for new homes. If you would like one or some, please make a donation and leave it in the offering plate. You can write “Children’s Chair Offering” on one […]

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.

Office Notes || Windows Crash!

Recently, our office computer crashed and could not be repaired. We purchased a new computer and software (old software would not work on the new operating system). The cost to replace the computer and software would have been $994.15, but with rebates and recycling rewards, it was $870.65, a savings of $123.50. Unfortunately, there is […]

For this reason, since the day we heard about you, we have not stopped praying for you. We continually ask God to fill you with the knowledge of his will through all the wisdom and understanding that the Spirit gives, — Colossians 1:9 (NIV)
