Welcome to Emmanuel United Church of Christ

One more piece from the secretary before I hand over any “pastor stuff” I’ve been handling. YEA!!!

I’m really glad we found an interim pastor. Pastor Ken started officially on October 19 and has been getting acclimated to his position here. I’ve heard many complimentary comments regarding his sermons and his sincerity.

We’ll all get […]

Welcome to Emmanuel United Church of Christ

Teen Talk on Sunday Mornings

What does the Bible have to do with me? Why didn’t God do what I wanted him to? How should Jesus’ teachings affect the way I act? Why should I go to church? What happens when I die? People of all ages have questions about their faith and teens are no different. Teens especially can […]

[On Not Loving the World] Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, love for the Father is not in them. For everything in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—comes not from the Father but from the world. — 1 John 2:15-16 (NIV)
