Thanks be to God for a wondrous Las Posadas. Special thanks to our grumply innkeepers, the Ortiz family, and all those who contributed to this beautiful and lively event. Gene Cantwell took these great photos and made a video of the journey that you can see here:  Las Posadas 2016

News Flash
 

    • Join us for Emmanuel's monthly movie night on Friday, December 16, at 6:30PM! Academy Award Winner George C. Scott stars as Ebenezer Scrooge in Charles Dickens' classic drama, " A Christmas Carol". Admission and refreshments are free, and the company is stellar!

       
    • A Service of Light will be led by The Rev. Cindy Voien this coming Thursday at 6:30pm in the church. As we remember the San Bernardino attack from last year during this season and think of the occasions of violence that happen in our world, we pray for greater safety and peace for all. Any who feel led to come and pray are invited to attend.
       
    • Congratulations to Fred and Grandson Taavi who both recently celebrated birthdays together. They definitely look like they are related!
  

Message from Dave Dunlap: 

 

Just delivered the toys from Emmanuel Episcopal Church's Toy Drive for Project Di gnity - gifts for over 40 children living in motels here in Orange County plus enough money donated for Project Dignity to purchase toys for about 25 more. A huge success! Thanks to all at Emmanuel who supported this Outreach effort!

Santa Surprise
We had a marvelous time at the Santa Breakfast and raised around $500 for Emmanuel Preschool. The two kids are Miss Michele's children who were baptised at Emmanuel last year. Can you name the Santa? (Hint: He had an accent that seemed not only from a little north of here but also from across the pond.)
