Emmanuel by Kathy


50/40/30/18 ???


There is a gala being held this month at Emmanuel Episcopal Church.  It has been dubbed the 50/40/30/18 Celebration. Here is the significance of those numbers:



50 years since Emmanuel Episcopal began its ministry at the Fullerton YMCA


40 years since Emmanuel Episcopal Preschool opened its doors.


30 years since Father Rob Bethancourt, the rector arrived at Emmanuel.


18 years since Mother Lyn Crow, the associate rector arrived at Emmanuel.


There's lots to celebrate, lots to be grateful for. Most of all we are grateful for the guidance and inspiration of the Holy Spirit during all those years of ministry. We are grateful for Father Paul Edwards and his ministry as rector for the first 31 years. Grateful for all the amazing people who have attended through the years and who are the church. Grateful for the incredible ministry that has been and continues to be done through these people. Grateful above all that Emmanuel is a "Grace Place", a place where the grace and love of God can be experienced. And of course, grateful to be a part of the wonderful city of Fullerton.


The celebration is being held Sunday September 29th beginning with the church service at 9:00 am and followed by a BBQ, lots of entertainment, a bounce house for the kids, a silent auction and who knows what else. Emmanuel alumni are coming from all corners of the nation to celebrate with us. Visiting dignitaries include The Rt. Rev. Diane Jardine Bruce, Bishop Suffragan of the Diocese of Los Angeles. The public is invited to come and  celebrate with us. 


Emmanuel Appreciation Fund



 For people who would like to show their appreciation for Emmanuel's 50 years of ministry and service, we've started an Emmanuel Appreciation Fund. Our goal is to raise $50,000 that will be a support fund for Emmanuel's future.


If you would like to contribute to this fund, just send a check made out to Emmanuel with "Appreciation" in the memo. Thank you!
