Deanery IX Annual BBQ


The Barbie

Emmanuel is one of twelve churches in northern Orange County that make up Deanery 9, a geographical area within the Diocese of Los Angeles. Fr. Rob is the Dean of this deanery. 



Each year a different church hosts a BBQ for everyone within Deanery 9. This year, Trinity Episcopal Church in Orange will be hosting us. They are preparing a wonderful Texas BBQ and are looking forward to any Emmanuelites who might like to come and enjoy their food and hospitality. If you like, bring a side dish or dessert to share. They would also like to know the number of people who are going, so please contact Fr. Rob or the church office if you would like to attend. Hope to see you there!


Where: Trinity Episcopal Church, 2400 N. Canal St, Orange

When: July 27, 4pm - 6:30pm

Who: Anybody from a church in Deanery 9. That's us!



Emmanuel VBS for Everyone!

The Joy of the Lord


VBS 2012

What a blast we had last summer in our "Vacation Bible School for Everyone" week. Adults did everthing from music, gardening, and wine making to spiritual breakthroughs and discoveries. Children did crafts, singing, murals, music and a host of other activities. 


This year we will have the theme of "The Joy of the Lord" and the fun will begin on August 5 at 6pm. Each evening of the week we will have dinner together and then split up into the adult and children tracks. Some of the opportunities for adults will be Hawaiian spirituality, the spirituality of photography, a class on keeping up your body's energy and a class on social justice in the 21st century. Children's tracks will include sign language, painting mandalas, and flower arranging to name a few. Each night will end with a time of worship in the sanctuary and Friday evening there will be a bonfire with s'mores and song.

  Dan and Nancy Love Spoken
Nancy Kent sent this photo of her and Dan sharing the Emmanuel "Love Spoken Here" card. Maybe we could start a whole trend of places you've been with this Emmanuel invitation. Thanks, George, for this great reminder of who we are. May we carry on your legacy!
