Worship with us online Jan. 21, 2024

Posted By EmmanuelUMC on Jan 27, 2024 |

Welcome to our worship service on January 21, 2024!  The order of worship can be found at this link.


*January Mission Project: The Children’s and Youth Ministry Team invites the congregation to collect stuffed animals/toys through the month of January for our local first responders to use when making emergency calls involving children. These small gifts can help to greatly ease the fear and anxiety a child experiences in these times of crisis. Please place your items in the Narthex tub by NEXT Sunday, January 28. Thanks for your help. Please see Jeanie Combs with questions.

*Blessing of Church Leaders: On Sunday, January 28 during morning worship, we will show our gratitude to the church leaders who have served us in 2023 and offer a blessing for the 2024 Lay Leadership of our congregation. We appreciate all our ministry leaders and faithful volunteers who devote themselves to serve Christ through the ministries of our church and give thanks for the many ways God calls each of us to give of ourselves in service.

*Save the Date: On Sunday, February 11 immediately following worship, the Vitality Team will sponsor a Valentine themed luncheon for the congregation. More details to come!

*2024 Offering Envelopes and Church Family Christmas Cards: If you have not yet picked yours up, they are located at the back of the Sanctuary. If you do not have an envelope number and would like to receive envelopes, please contact Mike Stinnett or the church office.
