We Are Burying Hallelujah this Sunday!
Each year right
before Ash Wednesday we bury a sign in the garden outside Mo. Lyn's
office, bearing the word Hallelujah. This act is symbolic of the fact
that during Lent, we omit the word Hallelujah from our worship. Thus we
remind ourselves that we are entering a more solemn season of the church
year which is spent in introspection and penitence. We will bury
Hallelujah at the end of the 10:00 am service this coming Sunday,
February 11th. So
and join us as we sing our last Hallelujahs until Easter!
Celebration of Life
The memorial service for Yvonne Conklin will
be held here at Emmanuel on Saturday February 17th at 10:00 am followed
by a reception. Everyone is invited to come and give thanks for her life
and her ministry!
I am so sad to inform you that Joanie Schmid
died late Tuesday. Her memorial service will be held at Emmanuel on
Sunday February 18th at 4:00 pm. Her family wanted to be sure that the
entire Emmanuel community was invited to come and celebrate her life.
Emmanuel meant so much to Joanie. She was always so grateful that Al had
brought her here and introduced her to us!!! Please keep her family,
her caregiver Eva, and of course dear Al Perry in your thoughts and
prayers as they grieve for her.
Ash Wednesday is Here!
