 Dear Gene  

So many beautiful things happened in 2011. Now we have a chance to celebrate them! This Sunday we will worship, do some business, celebrate, envision and feast! See you there!
With gratitude for you,
Fr. Rob and Mo. Lyn

One Lord, One Faith, One Baptism...

Emmanuel's Annual Meeting this Sunday

Emmanuel Candle 

"We gather together to ask the Lord's blessings". I love that childhood hymn. This Sunday we get an opportunity to give thanks for all the many blessings of 2011 and also discern what the Holy Spirit would like to accomplish in our midst during 2012. 


We will gather at 9am for communion and I will share a pictorial journey though the past year. Who knows, you might see your face up on the wall. :) Then we will hold our Annual Meeting, where we will present the budget, elect a new vestry member, gather our thanksgivings and begin charting our course for the coming year. Afterwards (around noon) we will be treated to a delicious feast by George Hayward and company. What a great way to celebrate our lively faith, beautiful friendships, and sumptuous food!


By the way, special guest appearance by Lew and Bobbie Lardie. They will be in town and are looking forward to seeing their 8:15 and 10am friends.


See y'all there!

Fr. Rob
