 Dear   ,    
 
Tonight is Ministry Mojo 2.0 - the second in the offering of discovering the secret of doing what you love. Read on to find out more about tonight's Emmanuel guest speaker and to see the other opportunities during our Lenten journey.

With love in Christ,
Fr. Rob & Mo. Lyn+

P.S. Remember that it is Spring Forward Sunday! (Daylight Savings Time)



 
Ministry Mojo
The Secret of Doing What You Love


This week's speaker is Thom Babcock. Thom has a passion for outreach and caring for those who need practical help. Recently he and his granddaughter teamed up to help feed hungry children. Just one of the many stories you will hear tonight about how the Holy Spirit is working in the midst of Thom's commitment to make a difference in the world!

Tonight at 7:30pm in the SHACK room.



 

-------------------------------------


 

Our Lenten program is about spiritual gifts. At Emmanuel we encourage people to do ministry that gives them joy. We believe that if you are doing what you love to do, you are most likely using your spiritual gifts. Each week a person from the congregation will share what ministry they are excited about, how they recognized the call to that ministry, how they responded to the call, what people they reach with their ministry, and what the experience of doing what you love feels like. In addition, there will be some time of music and worship and a short teaching by either Fr. Rob or Mo. Lyn about the use of spiritual gifts. The program will include an opportunity to fill out a spiritual gifts inventory so that those who attend can learn what their own spiritual gifts are.

 

The dates for the class and the speakers are: 

 

Feb 26th Amy Kremer

 

March 5 Thom Babcock

 

March 12 Elizabeth Oates

 

March 19 Cheri Collin

 

March 26 Ron Suich

I liked this photo of Faith that was taken on Shrove Tuesday. It has been a few weeks, but I thought you might enjoy seeing it.
