 Dear   ,    
Though summer has arrived and vacations are in full swing, Emmanuel remains a busy place. Preschool teachers are getting ready for their summer program, the Brownies are having a special gathering, there are meetings daily as varied as Smokers Anonymous and Native American Ministries, and of course our office is staffed by wonderful volunteers from 9 am to 1 pm Monday through Friday (and also Kathy Palmer our bookkeeper on Thursdays and Fridays). Drop in anytime and say hi. We'd love to see you!  
        
Much love,
Mo. Lyn+

 


Our Woodworker in Residence

You may or may not be aware that we have a talented woodworker in residence. Dave Nicholson is the primary person responsible for the absolutely gorgeous wooden altar rails that replaced our dated wrought iron ones. Now Dave has noticed that after its many decades of use, our baptismal font is showing its age. So Dave is now sanding and refinishing it, readying it for our next baptism. The font at Emmanuel is quite unique, in that it serves as the base for our altar. The symbolism of that is powerful. It says that baptism is at the heart of every Eucharist we celebrate! Thank you Dave for your faithful ministry and for sharing your gifts with us.
