Soup, Salad, and the Holy Spirit!



Nancy Kent

Our theme this week will be "Nurturing Life in the Spirit".  We will look at how we can continue to grow in the power of the Holy Spirit and answering the musical question "If it's all grace, why should I do anything to help my spiritual life?" Nancy Kent will be giving her witness this week and sharing some tools from her life and experience. Come join us and be part of a life-changing event!


Each evening in this series will begin with a soup and salad bar followed by prayer and praise songs, an introduction of the evening's topic, a witness talk by one of our parishioners, small group discussion, and a closing prayer and song.


The class topics include Creation and Creativity, Fall and Redemption, Receiving the Holy Spirit, Nurturing Life in the Spirit, Ministry-Discovering Your Spiritual Gifts, and Miracles-Stories of the Kingdom. The program will be an updated and contemporary version of the Life in the Spirit seminars that were so popular here at Emmanuel a number of years ago.


Come join us in the SHACK room to hear stories of Emmanuel, to grow, be refreshed, and to feel more deeply connected with this wonderful community of Christians. 



Open the Eyes of My Heart, Lord


Paul Dobies

 Our own Paul Dobies, not only an excellent musician but a talented speaker and Doctor of Optometry, will be presenting a workshop on building bridges of communication through everyday conversation. He will show participants how to combine the knowledge of eye movements with their knowledge of the people in their lives, to see themselves and others in a "whole" new way. 


 The workshop will take place this Saturday, March 17 at St. Stephen's Episcopal Church, 10925 Valley Home Avenue, Whittier. The event will begin with healthy snacks and fellowship from 12:45 to 1:15 pm, and the workshop will commence at 1:15 and last until 3:45.
