Community Talent & Auction May 16 At Emmanuel UCC

Come join our area churches on Saturday, May 16, for an evening of entertainment and fellowship. From 5 until 7 pm local talent will showcase their gifts at the Talent in Bloom Show and Auction. In addition to their great performances, there will be an auction for the benefit of our churches. Items will include paintings, photographs, hand-crafted quilts and needlework, fancy baked goods and more. There will be two levels of auctions: a Chinese auction which will be ongoing all evening until it is called at about 6:30 pm and a Called Bid Auction which will be for larger items and held between performances. Refreshments will also be available. For more information, please contact the church office at (570) 868-5675.

Sunday worship service is at 10:30 am. Our greeters will be Gene and Janice Broyan and the liturgist is Denise Dean. Come, join us for worship this Sunday.

Sunday School meets at 9 am with classes for ages 3 through teens. We have a great time learning about God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. Our elementary classes are full of lively music, fun crafts and energetic games which all tie into the lessons which come straight out of the Bible. LIVE is the name of the lessons we use and the stories and activities are all in our Hands-On Bibles. We get to see where the stories come from by actually opening up and reading them from our Bibles. Our Teens take a different approach as they explore the Bible and discuss how the messages in it can pertain to their lives and the choices they have to make each day.
