WORSHIP SERVICES IN PERSON AND ONLINE
Thank you for joining us for online services last Sunday as we made every effort to slow the spread of COVID-19 within our church family. We are aware of less than five new cases in our congregation in the past week.
This Sunday, October 17, we will meet in person and online. Celebrate Recovery will also meet in person this Friday, October 15. We strongly encourage everyone to wear masks while indoors.
We are holding our Emmanuel Ministry Fair outside in the back parking lot this Sunday. Worship services will be shortened to allow time for everyone to explore the many ministries and opportunities to serve that Emmanuel has to offer. Envision Kids will meet for the full hour to allow parents to explore the Ministry Fair, and children can be picked up as usual at 10:00 and 11:45am. Parking will be restricted in the area of the Ministry Fair.
It’s going to be a great weekend at Emmanuel!

Food, games, crafts, Trunk or Treat - an evening of free fun for the whole family!

SHOEBOXES FOR HAITI
October 17-November 14
Each year we collect shoeboxes filled with gifts for our students in Haiti. School supplies, hygiene items, toys, and other small gifts make a big difference in the lives of Haitian children and their families. You can share God’s love this Christmas by packing a shoebox.
Visit their table at the Ministry Fair this Sunday, or in the Welcome Center over the next few weeks, for more information and materials.

HOLY LAND TOUR WITH PASTOR STAN
March 15-24, 2022
I invite you to join me for 10 exciting days in Israel. This Holy Land Classic program will expand our knowledge of the Bible and this sacred land. A journey following in the footsteps of Jesus will change the way you read the Bible, and you will learn why scholars refer to it as the "Fifth Gospel." I personally invite you to be a part of this adventure in faith and join us in experiencing a once-in-a-lifetime journey as we walk where Jesus walked! This will be a spiritually enriching and life-changing experience!
