 Movie Night at Emmanuel 




Great movie planned for this Friday night at 6:30 PM  in Havermall Hall! The classic "To Kill A Mockingbird" with Gregory Peck, adapted from the Pulizer Prize winning book by Harper Lee, will be shown. Y'all come!


 Lenten Launch!  



Shrove Tuesday

Our pre-Lenten activity will be a traditional pancake supper headed up by Chef Charlie and the band of EBNO volunteers. After the supper we will have a Mardi Gras style musical procession out to the garden to bury "Alleluia" which will remain hidden until we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus at Easter. Come on out Tuesday at 6pm for food, fellowship, and great fun.


Ash Wednesday 

Services will include scripture and inspirational readings, imposition of ashes, and communion.

7 am

10 am

7 pm

The evening service will begin with a brief Taize service which will include the Ash Wednesday readings, and then continue with imposition of ashes and communion.


 Lent 2014

                Holy Spirit



Wine and Cheese 

and the Wind in the Trees


Emmanuel's Lenten program this year promises to be lively and spirited. The focus of the program will be a deeper anointing of the Holy Spirit. Each week's gathering will begin with a wine and cheese tasting and will include a teaching by Fr. Rob and Mo. Lyn, a witness from someone in our Emmanuel community, followed by some worship and prayer. The topics for each of the weeks include, The Wind Blows Where it Will, Fresh Air, Wind Wind Blow on Me, Deeper Currents, Wind Screens, and Soaring on the Updraft.  The classes will be held at 7:00 pm on March 6, 13, 20, and 27th and April 3 and 
10th. Mark your calendars now and plan on joining us!

Pete Petersen, this one's for you! 
(On a recent Vestry Retreat, the theme of "flying pigs" seemed to fill his vision. :) I took this photo at my sister's house in Phoenix.
