 Dear   ,    
It was a marvelous miracle! The Emmanuel Tea Party came together beautifully, with room for all, food galore, extraordinary costumes & commentary, and a bountiful boutique. Thanks be to God, and thanks to all who helped!

With much love,

Emmanuel Tasty Tea Triumph!

Emmanuel Tea 2014

A big THANK YOU to all the people who made the dream of the Emmanuel Tea Fundraiser a possibility. Thanks to Mary Jane Bonilla who coordinated everything, Jean Eden and all her models, the servers, culinary wizards and those who helped with setup, cleanup, and takedown, as well as all those who contributed their creativity for the boutique. You were all marvelous! We don't have the figures back yet, but it looks like we raised somewhere around $3000 for Emmanuel. Thanks be to God!

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
