Summer Music At Emmanuel United Church Of Christ

During the summer months, the choirs at Emmanuel take a break. We then look to other members of our church who are willing to provide musical ministry for our Worship Services. We ask our members, some of whom may have obligations which do not allow them to participate in the choir on a regular basis, to volunteer to sing or play music during the Worship Service. Anyone wishing to perform special music is asked to see Denise Dean and she will add you to the schedule.

This year, Emmanuel UCC will be the host for our interfaith Vacation Bible School. From July 13 to 17, we will transform the Fellowship Hall and Sanctuary of Emmanuel UCC into the great outdoors with this year’s theme, SonRise National Park. At the “Park”, we’ll discover amazing Bible adventures at Climb Higher Lodge, sing awesome songs at Gathering Grove, have a snack at the Picnic Patch, create crafts with the Busy Beavers, and play at Wild Wilderness Games. As we explore our “Park”, we’ll learn the most important survival skill of all: we can always depend on Jesus and His promises of true peace, true riches, true power, true love, and true hope! At SonRise National Park, we will learn to trust Jesus as our all-powerful guide and Savior. SonRise National Park starts at 6:30 pm and ends at 8:30 pm. To preregister, contact Denise at Emmanuel (570 868-5675), Judy at Faith (570 868-3247) or Christine at Stairville (570 868-3413). Emmanuel UCC is located in Dorrance at the end of Alberdeen Road across from Andy’s Gas Station.

On Sunday mornings, we meet at 10:30 am for Worship Service. On June 22, greeters will be Diana Decker and Camille Daniels and our liturgist will be Jill Bernetski.
