This Sunday is going to be awesome. African Dancing, Million Meals
Ingathering, Mouth-Watering BBQing. What a great way to celebrate
Emmanuel: God With Us!
With love in Christ,
Fr. Rob+ and Mo. Lyn+
A Dancing Outreach Banquet!
We get to combine so many of the things that we do well this
Sunday! First of all, to lift our hearts to God--inspired by Pross and
her friends who will share liturgical dance in the African style.
Secondly, to make a difference in the world by collecting money for
Million Meals (now approaching 10 million meals provided by this
congregation!). And finally to have a blast feasting and fellowshipping
together as we enjoy some good food and good company.
When: Sunday, May 29th at 9am
What to remember: Bring any coins you've collected or a check to Emmanuel with "Million Meals" in the memo
AND a side dish to share at the BBQ if you are able.

- Million Meals Ingathering
your buckets of coins, checks, and any other kind of contribution on
May 29th at 9am. Each dollar provides four meals for those in need
through the Orange County and LA County Food Banks. Our goal is to reach
the 10 Million Meals Mark! (If you write a check, make it out to
"Emmanuel" with "Million Meals" in the memo.)
- Are you interested in being a LEV
I want to invite any of you that are interested in joining the Lay Eucharist Visitor
ministry. In the last year, I have been blessed to be with many
that are unable to attend church (due to being shut in or ill), by
sitting with them, sharing stories and most of all sharing Eucharist.
Many times I go thinking I may not know what to say or do with the
person I am visiting, but the Holy Spirit always arrives just at the
right moment. I leave each time thinking what a blessing to sit,
listen and be with those that can't attend church with us. It's an
intimate time, a gift, a double blessing for each person, you and them.
If you are interested in being a LEV or would like to know more information, please contact me: firstname.lastname@example.org
, 714-446-9670. We will be having a class in the near future.
Thank you, Jen Wagner

Garden of Paradise!
Emmanuel Community Demonstration Garden continues to be a blessing for
our community and the surrounding neighborhoods. We had another great
turnout for the monthly (third Saturday of the month) plant sale. Here
Gordon, Warren and Charley are enjoying the fruits of their labors
(which in this case were mostly vegetables!)
