Spring Turkey Dinner Planned May 17 At Emmanuel United Church Of Christ

Emmanuel UCC’s delicious Turkey Supper will be served on Saturday, May 17, from 3:00 to 7:00 pm. Tables will be piled high with mashed potatoes, gravy, home-made stuffing, green beans, corn, pickled cabbage, fresh bread, cranberry sauce, and of course, turkey. We’ll have dozens of cakes for you to choose from to complete your dinner. To wash it all down, drinks include juice, water, ice tea, hot decaf or regular tea, and hot decaf or regular coffee. Ticket prices are $10.00 for adults; $4.00 for children age 6 to 11; children 5 and under for free; or $10.00 for a well-portioned take-out. If you would like to reserve tickets for the meal, please call Doris at 379-3755 or the Church Office at 868-5675. Tickets will be available for sale at the door. Come enjoy a full “sit-down” dinner complete with turkey and all the fixings (and no clean-up!).

Sunday School will hold a Bake Sale during the Turkey Supper on May 17. If you are able to create some yummy cupcakes, candy, cakes and such for our kids to sell, please drop them off in the narthex the morning of the supper (we’ll need time to package and price them).

Got stuff? We’ve got a place for you to sell it! On Saturday, May 24, from 8 am to noon, we’ll sponsor a craft show and flea market. You can rent a table for $15 and show off your stuff. Please Note: The church is NOT collecting items to sell. We want to provide a place for you to sell your own items. So pack up all those wonderful creations you made, clean out the garage and attic, and make some money! The church will also be selling delicious breakfast items so you don’t have to browse on an empty stomach. Emmanuel is located at the intersection of Alberdeen Road and Blue Ridge Trail, across from Andy’s Gas Station. To rent a table, please call the church secretary at 570 868-5675.

On Sunday mornings, we start with Sunday School at 9:00 am for group time and then divide up for lessons, games and crafts. After Sunday School, we meet at 10:30 am for Worship Service. On May 11, our greeters will be Camille Daniels and Diana Decker and our liturgist will be Wayne Mast.
