The Annual 300 Club at Emmanuel United Church of Christ will be held on Saturday, June 17, from 12 to 6 pm. Only 300 tickets are sold to have a chance to win 43 prizes. That’s better odds than the PA lottery! Tickets are $35 for 2 people to come for a day of delicious food and excellent entertainment.
There are hourly drawings starting at 1:00 pm. At 6:00 pm the final grand prizes are drawn, which everyone has a chance at since we put all previous winners back “in the pot!”
Add to that all the great eats and awesome music by Mud Pond Boys and Sundance and you have a terrific afternoon filled with fun. If you want to attend but don’t care about the prizes, just pay $15 per person and still enjoy all the food and entertainment. Donation items are needed for the SILENT AUCTION which will be held during the 300 Club. These need to be new items for a Silent Auction. Many items are donated by local merchants and businesses. If you have something to donate or think of someone who might donate, please take some of the donation memos on the table in the narthex. Fill in the person/ business name, the date, and the item and its value and give it to the person/business for their tax records. Also note the value of the item for us so we can put that on the bid sheets for the auction.
During the summer months, the choirs at Emmanuel take a break. We then look to other talented members of our church who are willing to provide musical ministry for our Worship Services. We ask our members, some of whom may have obligations which do not allow them to participate in the choir on a regular basis, to volunteer to sing or play music during the Worship Service. It is always refreshing -and sometimes surprising -to discover who has musical ability. Whoever it is and whatever they do, we always enjoy the variety that this season brings to our worship experience. Anyone wishing to perform special music is asked to see Denise Dean and she will add you to the summer schedule.
Sunday worship service is at 10:30 am and is led by Pastor Lou Aita. We welcome visitors and friends to join us for worship every Sunday.
