The men are retreating so they can advance! Keep them in your prayers as they are away.

Also, this blurb has reminders about how to help hurricane victims and our preschool--plus a little vineyard action. Check it out below.

With love in Jesus,

Be a Preschool Super Hero

 Our preschool is transitioning to a new director.  Ms. Nancy is retiring to pursue her call as a hospital chaplain after 21 years at Emmanuel Preschool.  The preschool has been hit hard the last 3 years competing with the new state funded free transitional kindergartens, She has been working hard to grow the school again by adding social media, neighborhood marketing, extended hours and much more.   We have started to see the results nearly doubling our numbers at the beginning of this school year.  We are ready to bring on a new director (Ms. Lisa) but Nancy has taken a reduced salary in recent years so we must up our budget significantly.  We need support for a little while until the school gets completely up to speed with the new salary.  While the vestry (church board) has agreed to help to partially support the school this year, they can't help until Fr Rob retires.  We are asking  you to  help fill the gap.    We need $5000 .  The preschool brings the community to our campus and is a source of life and inspiration.  We are calling all preschool "Super Heroes" to help fund this outreach and this wonderful service to our community which began nearly 45 years ago!  Thank-you for your support.

You can contribute by writing a check to the church with "preschool" in the memo or by going to this Go Fund Me linkEmmanuel Preschool

The stomping of the grapes was accomplished with great fun! The wine is now bubbling away in the carboys. Next step is racking.
 
Thanks and hugs,
