Story Day is Coming - Saturday August 12th
We all have stories about Emmanuel - how we found Emmanuel, why we stayed, unforgettable Emmanuel moments . . . you know - stories about the things that make Emmanuel the truly unique parish that it is.
The first step in the process of calling a new priest for Emmanuel is for us to get together and share all those stories with each other and your Profile Committee so that we can weave them into our Parish Profile.  That Profile will become the "ad" that will draw our next rector to us.  Our Profile needs to communicate the essence of who we are, and the qualities we're looking for in our new Rector.
Please plan on joining us for Story Day - the beginning of Emmanuel's journey to the future.  More details will be announced soon.

Walking together on this journey...
Would you like to get more involved?
I would like to invite any of you that are interested to become a Lay Eucharist Minister.  In this ministry, we need Lay Readers and Chalice bearers for the Sunday services. What a blessing it has been for me to read scripture and share the blood of Christ, by being a chalice bearer.
I would also like to invite any of you that are interested to become a Lay Eucharist Visitor.  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, them and me.
If you are interested in finding out more information or being a LEM or a LEV, please contact me:, 714-446-9670. Mother Lyn will be leading a class on Saturday September 16, 2017 from 9:00am-12:00noon
Thank you, Jen Wagner  

Marti has sent word that Jacob and Joe are having a great time traveling with their drum line. What an honor and opportunity that they were chosen for this tour. They send thanks for your prayers and support!
