Bishop Diane is Coming
Bishop Diane Jardine Bruce will be making a
visit to Emmanuel on February 4th. We will be having a single service at
9:00 am, followed by coffee hour. Part of the celebration will be the
baptism of the Marquez family's baby Kiara! Then the bishop will be
meeting with members of the parish leadership. Please mark your
calendars now. We want to have a nice turn-out to bless Kiara in her
life in Christ and to hear what Bishop Diane might share with us about
The Profile Committee Needs Your Help
Profile Committee is attempting to gather artworks that tell your story
at Emmanuel. Any art form that you would like to share (music, visual
art, poetry, scriptures) that tell your story at Emmanuel (whether
you are the author/artist or not) please send those things to Kathy
Eppick @ firstname.lastname@example.org. These will be added to our profile as
we seek a new rector.
Spring will soon be here which means that it
is time to prune the grape vines. This is actually a fun job and goes
very quickly if we have enough help. We will start at 9:00 this
Saturday, January 13 under the pergola for coffee, bagels and
instructions. Bring your clippers, gloves, hat, and remember to put on
The Garden has acquired, on permanent loan, a heavy-duty chipper/shredder. So, January 13 is designated as Compost Day.
It is our intention to empty and shred all the material in the compost
bins as well as what has accumulated at the rear of the vineyard. This
compost material, often referred to as black gold, is a very rich
resource that we have been b
uilding for years. It is time we began to use it. Come to prune and stay to shred!
We look forward to seeing you on Saturday.
