We had another weekend that made me want to shout "Hallelujah!". The Reconcilation Retreat for the kids was so beautiful and touched our hearts deeply. The Emmanuel Community Garden Vineyard First Vintage Party was so fun and festive. What an amazing community of people we have! Read more about these great events in this issue.

With love in Jesus,

P.S. Come join us Friday night at the church for a fun time with friends!

Reconcilation Retreat

What a holy time Fr. Rob and I spent with Emmanuel's young people at their reconciliation retreat that lasted from Friday June 9 to Saturday June 10. Our part was to be with each child individually as they made their first reconciliation (confession). They had been prepared for it so beautifully by Ginger Cash their catechist, with lessons on the True Vine and the Lost Sheep. After the reconciliation we celebrated Eucharist using bread that the children had made. This was followed by a pot luck supper with the kids and their families. We will cherish the memories forever. ~ Mo. Lyn

Emmanuel Community Garden Vineyard
First Vintage Release Party


It was a fun evening. We tasted the wine from our First Vintage. We tasted our red wine vinegar. We munched on cheese, crackers and fruit. We shared the garden. And we enjoyed each other's company.
A good number of people joined the Emmanuel Community Vineyard Guild - for which we give thanks. We also thank the Guild Team for hosting a great event - Rich and Lynda Bronzellino, Robert and Beth Jahncke, Lynette Nyaggah, Howard Minkley, Charles and Karen Julian.
We do have a bit of wine left, if you were not able to join us last Sunday evening, send us an email and we will arrange for you to taste the wine and perhaps join the Guild - .

  • Emmanuel Summer Camp Finale - Come on out for our end of the week blowout! We'll be gathering in Edwards Hall for BBQ at 6pm on Friday (June 16). Two different classes--art and swing dancing will be offered for adults from 6:45 until 8pm. Then we'll gather outside around the campfire with the children for a songfest and s'mores. Fun for the whole family!
  • Ready for some adventure with Humphrey Bogart and Katherine Hepburn?  Come to Emmanuel Movie Night, Friday, June 23 at 6:30PM for the 1951 classic "The African Queen"! Set during World War I, the movie was filmed almost entirely in the Congo by directing legend John Huston.  Oscar-winner Bogart stars as no-nonsense riverboat captain Charlie Allnut, who is taking Hepburn's prim spinster Rose Sayer to safety after her missionary brother dies from an encounter with German troops. Wonderfully written and perfectly played, Charlie and Rose battle each other, the river and the jungle, and the Germans in order to survive. Hepburn and Bogart bring a tangible sense of warmth and affection as their characters' feelings grow for each other, Bogie displaying his rarely seen but keen sense for comedy.  As always, admission and refreshments are free, and the company is stellar!

I was reminded again last Sunday after Eucharist how blessed we are to have Paul and Rosa's music. Not only during the service, but afterwards they often offer the gift of instrumental music that beautifully touches the heart and uplifts the spirit. Thanks be to God!
