Emmanuel Serving Saints!
fom Emmanuel delivered 73 hot Thanksgiving meals at Brethern Manor in
Long Beach as part of Volunteer Action for Aging's annual holiday meal
give away. VAA, which is part of SCAN Healthcare, delivered 2500 meals
on Thanksgiving morning in Los Angeles, Orange, Ventura, and San Diego
Counties! I am grateful we could be a part of bringing the Holiday
Spirit to our seniors!!! ~ Patty McDaneld
Birthday Wish Fulfilled!
her birthday, the Babcock's grandaughter Allyssa decided she wanted to
help children who were less fortunate than her. Here's what Thom had to
say about that adventure!
a great day we had yesterday celebrating Allyssa's birthday! After
starting the morning with a surprise visit to Allyssa in school we
continued last night by taking 700 pounds of pasta and sauce and $680 in
cash and checks that we had collected to the restaurant where the fund
raiser was being held. Allyssa got a mention on the live KFI broadcast
and several big hugs from Bruno the owner of the White House Restaurant
for making the charity part of her birthday celebration.
Many thanks to all who helped make this happen.
Emmanuel Up and Coming
Movie Night: Come
join us at Emmanuel on Friday, December 19, 6:30PM, for the 1947 Best
Picture-nominated classic "The Bishop's Wife". Set at
Christmas-time, it's a delightful fantasy about a harried Episcopal
bishop who prays for a new cathedral-but receives a dapper undercover
angel named Dudley instead! Humor and warmth blend effortlessly as
angel Dudley's decidedly human presence affects the bishop, his wife
and everyone else Dudley encounters-all for the good. Stars David
Niven, Cary Grant and Loretta Young! As always, admission is free,
refreshments are served, and the company is stellar!
Virtual Labyrinth: Walk the Walk for Peace and Direction, Sunday at 12, bring your friends!
Lomheim's Home Group will skip it's regularly scheduled meeting in December so that folks can attend the Advent Program. We'll see you next month!
Preschool Fundraiser: Come
visit Fuddrucker's on Orangethorpe for a meal between 11am to 9pm on
December 4th and a portion of your bill will go to Emmanuel Preschool.
Easy way to feed yourself and feed the preschool! Bring a flyer along
(extra ones are in the church)!

Have you seen our new cross?
conducting the walkabout with Bishop Diane, we realized that we blend
in so well with the neighborhood that people don't even know we are
here! This celtic cross is a way of announcing who we are!
