Keep The Faith All Summer Long At Emmanuel

Summer is here and with it comes vacation time. We at Emmanuel United Church of Christ hope that you will remember to keep your faith with you all summer long, wherever you may be. It is easy to get into the habit of skipping a Sunday here and another one there. Pretty soon, God is forgotten. True believers know that God is with them wherever they go and can’t be left behind, only overlooked. We need to keep in mind that he is our Creator and deserves our praise in every season of the year. So, come worship our Lord with us at Emmanuel UCC. Everyone is welcome to join us in keeping our faith going strong all summer long.

Sunday worship service is at 10:30 am. Our greeters will be Mary Eroh and Lois Eigenbrod and the liturgist is Jill Bernetski. Come, join us for worship this Sunday. We welcome everyone into our Father’s house.

Upcoming Events include:

June 28 –Worship Service at 10:30 am

July 6 –VBS Meeting at 7:00 pm
