 Dear   ,    
Tea for two and two for tea--or maybe a whole lot more than that! Pray that we can find a seat for everyone. What an awesome challenge to have! Thanksgiving for all of you who have contributed so much time, energy, gifts, and culinary expertise to the upcoming Emmanuel Tea Party.

With much love,
Fr. Rob and Mo. Lyn

Emmanuel Tea Party!

Tea Party

The tickets are all sold, but the fun is yet to come! A reminder for those who have purchased tickets that the tea will be this Saturday, October 18, 2pm until 4pm. Early 20th Century Fashion Show and Holiday Shopping Boutique will provide the entertainment to accompany culinary treats and tasty tea!

Poinsettias Arriving at Emmanuel!

Armstrong Garden Centers have offered the Emmanuel Community Demonstration Garden the opportunity to purchase florist-quality Poinsettias as a fund raiser.



You can order a 6-inch sized pot, with 6 to 8 blooms, for $10. Or you can choose the 8-inch size, with almost twice the blooms, for $25. (Only available in traditional red.) Armstrong poinsettias are famous for their high quality - "they last and last and last!"


Also available are Mixed Fir Wreaths, noble, pine, and juniper with pinecones, in 20-inch and 28-inch sizes. They sell for $17 and $25 respectively. The wreaths are dipped in a safe product to preserve their freshness and lovely pine fragrance.


The church normally purchases 12-14 6-inch poinsettias, 2-4 8-inch poinsettias, and 4 wreaths to use in decorating the church for Christmas. This fundraiser is an opportunity for you to support Emmanuel by placing an order for the church when you order poinsettias and wreaths for your home.


We will be accepting orders until November 14 for delivery the week of December 8. For more information call Lorra and Gordon at 714-525-5578 or email
