Fall On In To Emmanuel

Another summer is over and the new school year has begun. Now we come back to the routines of fall. If you have not been a regular worshipper because of summertime activities or for whatever reason, we invite you to come Worship the Lord with us. It’s a time to reflect on our relationship with God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. We welcome everyone to come and worship with us.

Sunday worship service is at 10:30 am. Come, join us for worship this Sunday.

Our choir is holding a fundraiser to help you straighten out, clean out, and reorganize your home. For the donation of $10 for a table, you can bring your old “treasures” to the yard sale on October 24 from 8am to 2pm to sell. Tables will be available in the Fellowship Hall and under the Pavilion. Any items not sold must be taken with you. To reserve a table, please call Sharon at (570) 379-3908.
