Emmanuel UCC Welcomes Interim Pastor Rev. Ken Newhook

Since Pastor Penny retired, our church has been looking for someone to regularly lead us in worship and provide us with pastoral services. We are very happy to have Rev. Ken Newhook as our interim pastor while we search for a permanent pastor. We’ll welcome Pastor Newhook with a Meet and Greet Pot Luck Dinner after our worship service on November 1 instead of our usual coffee hour. We all know that our pot lucks are delicious and have the most amazing variety of food. Let’s share them with Pastor Newhook as we have a time of fellowship and get to know him.

Sunday worship service is at 10:30 am. Come, join us for worship this Sunday. We welcome everyone into our Father’s house.
