 Dear   ,    
Welcome back to our Cursillo brothers and sisters who worked and attended Cursillo these last two weekends. And a big welcome to Elizabeth Oates who will be sharing at our Ministry Mojo series this Thursday!

With love in Christ,
Fr. Rob & Mo. Lyn+

Ministry Mojo
The Secret of Doing What You Love

This week's speaker is Elizabeth Oates. Elizabeth taught at Emmanuel Preschool for many years and now is using her gifts to encourage curiosity and educational exploration in her grand-kids! When she taught in the preschool she was not only an amazing teacher but also a mentor and inspiration to the other teachers and parents. Come find out about her mojo and in the process discover more about how the Holy Spirit is working in your life. You have been blessed to be a blessing!

Tonight at 7:30pm in the SHACK room.




Our Lenten program is about spiritual gifts. At Emmanuel we encourage people to do ministry that gives them joy. We believe that if you are doing what you love to do, you are most likely using your spiritual gifts. Each week a person from the congregation will share what ministry they are excited about, how they recognized the call to that ministry, how they responded to the call, what people they reach with their ministry, and what the experience of doing what you love feels like. In addition, there will be some time of music and worship and a short teaching by either Fr. Rob or Mo. Lyn about the use of spiritual gifts. The program will include an opportunity to fill out a spiritual gifts inventory so that those who attend can learn what their own spiritual gifts are.


The dates for the class and the speakers are: 


Feb 26th Amy Kremer


March 5 Thom Babcock


March 12 Elizabeth Oates


March 19 Cheri Collin


March 26 Ron Suich

Workers in the Vineyard

No longer just a parable topic, we are now the proud owner of a vineyard with Merlot, Zinfandel (and soon to come: Syrah) grapes. Thanks be to God for all the donations, corporate contributions, and hard work of Lorra and Gordon Dickinson.
