Christmas Preparations Underway At Emmanuel UCC

Songs, parties and programs are on the list of our Christmas preparations at Emmanuel. After worship on Sunday, December 10, we’ll be tuning up our voices to go caroling at the local nursing homes and for our homebound members. It’s such a pleasure to see the looks of joy on their faces when they hear those familiar songs. It’s wonderful when they join in and add to the fun. Bringing delight to others is such a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon, so come join us.

Sunday mornings at 9:30 am is Sunday School for ages 3 through 6th grade. Emmanuel has a great program based on our Hands On Bibles. We’ll have fun making crafts, playing games, and solving puzzles which help us understand the stories in our Hands On Bibles.

Teen Talk is for anyone in 7th grade and above. The group meets Sunday mornings at 9:30 am to talk about God and Jesus, how our lives are influenced by them and how we can be an influence to others around us. There are so many things that try to manipulate us away from God.

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.

Upcoming events:

December 10 –Kids Choir 9 am, Youth Choir 9:15 am, Chancel Choir 9:30 am, Worship at 10:30 am, Christmas Caroling after Worship
