    #eepkids (for Preschool)
  • Emmanuel Church and Preschool at Faces of Fullerton was a tremendous success. We gave out a boatload of Emmanuel mugs with free coffee and numerous flyers and information letting people know about the preschool and church activities. A big THANK YOU! to Nancy Shively, as well as Amy and John Kremer for coordinating the day. Thanks, too, for Ginger and Dan Cash, Lyla Merrell, Diane Coy, Carolyn Cardamis, and the other folks who made this such a great way to get the word out to our Fullerton community!


  • Outreach Meeting Follow Up
    Thank you to Joe Cirrito for sharing the needs and possibilities for helping the homeless. Your words were inspiring and galvanizing. Thanks, too, for Joe's daughter Bella who is planning a project to provide hygiene care packages for the homeless in our area. More info to come about how we can help! We also reflected on Project Dignity, L'Arche, Laundry Love, The Emmanuel Community Garden, and Emmanuel Preschool. Some really exciting and new possibilities are on the horizon for significantly helping people in need! Thanks, Dave Dunlap, for being our Outreach go-to guy!
  • An Emmanuel Current Affairs Event
    Screening of the HBO documentary film, "Requiem for the Dead:  American Spring 2014"
    Thursday, April 21, 2016, SHACK room, 7 pm
    Access to the movie is being provided by Gary Scott.   Amy Kremer will moderate the discussion.
    This documentary movie presents footage from Facebook, Twitter and other social media, 911 calls and police file material, to put a human face on some of the estimated 8,000 individuals who died as a result of gun violence in America from March - June 2014.  After the movie, those who attend will have an opportunity for discussion.  Whatever your viewpoint on this part of American life, this movie provides context for what we might do to reduce gun violence deaths in the United States. 
    A note of caution:  This film contains content and crime-scene images that some - especially survivors of gun violence - may find disturbing. It should not be viewed by children under the age of 14 without adult supervision.

  • April Friday Night at the Movies
    Up for a grand adventure on an epic scale? Join us in the Shack on Friday, April 22 at 6:30PM, for the exhilarating quest of "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade"! Thundering through three continents, Spielberg and Lucas' witty and laconic "Last Crusade" is a joyous succession of adrenaline-shot action cliffhangers, perfectly timed humor and spitfire romantic chemistry, all underpinned by a brilliant musical score. More significantly, it is also a moving and reverent exploration of faith and belief. This time, Indy is battling Nazis to find the Holy Grail and his missing dad-an archeology professor who's found the Grail's location. Harrison Ford returns as the charismatically prickly Indy, and the venerable Sir Sean Connery stars as his antagonistic but loving father. Perfectly modulated work by Ford and Connery deliver not only plenty of laughs but a credible father-son drama which takes the emotionally-stunted pair to a profound destination at the end of a heroes' journey. As always, admission and refreshments are free, and the company is stellar!
