Craft Show & Yard Sale At Emmanuel UCC

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 yard sale. 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 18, our greeters will be Barb DeLuca and Carol Duffy and our liturgist will be Wayne Mast. Come, join us for worship this Sunday.

Vacation Bible School this year is scheduled for Sunday, July 13 to Thursday, July 17, here at Emmanuel. It’s an outdoor theme as we “point kids to Jesus” to find True Peace, True Riches, True Power, True Love and True Hope. Our second planning meeting was held on Monday, April 28. Our opening/ closing is at “SonRise National Park Lodge”; the Bible story area is “Discovery Bay”; crafts will be made at “Busy Beaver Crafts”; we’ll eat at “Blueberry Patch Snacks”; get moving at “Wild Wilderness Games” and our PreK will have their own “Little Bears Den”. We discussed where each station would be and some decorating ideas for them. Our next meeting is May 19 at 7:00 pm when we’ll discuss ideas for our Mission Project. We’re looking for more Assistants to help our Leaders, so anyone interested, please come to our next meeting.
