300 Club And Silent Auction At Emmanuel

Emmanuel’s Annual 300 Club and Silent Auction will be held on Saturday, June 18, from 12 to 6 pm. Only 300 tickets are sold to have a chance to win 43 prizes. That’s better odds than the PA lottery! Tickets are $35 for 2 people to come for a day of delicious food and excellent entertainment. There are hourly drawings starting at 1:00 pm for five CA$H PRIZE$ each hour ranging from $25 to $50.

At 6 pm the final grand prizes are drawn, which everyone has a chance at since we put all previous winners back “in the pot!” The 6:00 pm prizes are: one $1,000 prize, one $500 prize, one $250 prize, 5 prizes at $100 each, and five each at $50 and $25.

Add to that all the great eats and awesome music by Mud Pond Boys and Jesse and Friends and you have a terrific afternoon filled with fun. If you want to attend but don’t care about the prizes, just pay $15 per person and still enjoy all the food and entertainment.

A Silent Auction of items ranging from kid’s toys to kitchenware, handmade clocks to fine jewelry, gift certificates for restaurants to beauty salons, and everything in between, with call at 5:00 pm (no 300 Club ticket necessary) will also be held. There will be games and prizes for the kids, also. Emmanuel UCC is located in Dorrance Twp. (Mountain Top) at the end of Alberdeen Road across from Andy’s Gas Station. Please call Allen Dennis at 570-868-5120 or the church office at 570-868-5675 if you want tickets, need directions or can help out.

Emmanuel will welcome Rev. Craig Stout as our Interim Pastor on Sunday, June 19. Please come and make our new Pastor feel appreciated in his new position as leader of Emmanuel.

During the summer months, the choirs at Emmanuel take a break. We then look to other talented 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. It is always refreshing -and sometimes surprising -to discover who has musical ability. Anyone wishing to perform special music is asked to see Denise Dean.
