 Dear   ,    
 
We're feeling especially grateful this week for all the people who help out around Emmanuel in a multitude of supportive and loving ways. You are probably one of them! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

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

 
VBS is Coming!
VBS 2014 1

This collage is a little taste of last year's VBS to whet your appetite for what is to come! Mark your calendars for the weekday evenings June 29 - July 3. We'll begin with a variety of tasty meals starting at 6pm and then break into classes for both kids and adults, beginning at 7pm. The theme is "He's Got the Whole World in His Hands" and the adult classes will include subjects such as astronomy, international cooking, and swing dancing, as well as Rob Bell and Taize. Should be another awesome time together. Y'all come!

 
Yes! You Can Invite Your Friends!

The groundswell is increasing for the Garden Party! Last Tuesday a man from the neighborhood came by to say that he would be out of town but wanted to support us with a donation because we have been such good neighbors. Thanks be to God!

 

You can help with the groundswell. Pick up invitations on Sunday and pass them out. (Or, if you prefer click here for an electronic copy.) We are hosting this event for 3 reasons: 1) To raise funds in support of Habitat and our veterans; 2) To share our garden; 3) To expose our Emmanuel community to a wider audience. This is an easy and no-brainer way to "spread it around"!

Photo(s) of the Week

A big THANK YOU goes out to Steve and Company who setup, BBQed, and cleaned up after a delicious and festive BBQ last Sunday. Dave made an impressive and tasty fruit salad that included a shark carved out of a watermelon. Looks like I (Fr. Rob) got a little too close to the shark!
