From the Pastor’s Desk

Here are some the great opportunities for Emmanuel UCC during the month of September 2018!

Sunday School will again resume for our young people. Bible/Book study Youth Group Our continued dynamic worship services. And we all look forward to our choir returning in September!

Six Month Budget Review

Emmanuel’s consistory has just received its six-month budget review at the first meeting held after the said time period. We are seeing some trends that have given us cause for concern. By using average weekly giving numbers and projecting to the end of 2018, numbers suggest we will fall short of our financial obligations. As […]

Teen Talk on Sunday Mornings

Teen Talk is back on Sunday mornings starting on September 9 at 9:30 am. This is our own time to dig deeper into our faith. It’s not just another “Sunday School class” or Bible Study. It’s all about us – who we are, what’s happening in our lives right here and now, and how does […]

From the Pastor’s Desk

The last week of July, 2018, with consistory approval, I mailed out letters to approximately 27 of our brothers and sisters in Christ about what’s happening at Emmanuel UCC. Those who received letters were the folks on our directory list whom I haven’t met before, or have not seen in a while. I want them […]

From The Pastor’s Desk

For our July Newsletter, I thought it would be appropriate to include this important pastoral newsletter found on the UCC website, UCC.org. As a minister, I do not preach politics from the pulpit, but I do feel it is important for us as Christians to allow our voice to be heard in government decisions. We, […]

VOICES AND INSTRUMENTS WANTED

It’s summer and time for our choirs to be on vacation. But that doesn’t mean that we want a vacation from music. Anyone who will sing, play an instrument or (if you’re really talented) do both, is welcome to pick a Sunday to make a joyful noise to our God. Please see Denise Dean so […]

From the Pastor’s desk

I must confess I’m always unimpressed by the Statements of Faith that churches post on their sites. They just lie there, impassive, motionless, like an impressive monument artfully designed, yet lifeless. What’s a Statement of Faith anyways? It is supposed to be a compilation of our core beliefs, the foundation on which we stand, right? […]

Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. — Ephesians 4:29 (NIV)
