Christmas Preparations At Emmanuel UCC

Songs, parties and programs are on the list of our Christmas preparations at Emmanuel. After worship on Sunday, December 4, we’ll be tuning up our voices to go caroling at the local nursing homes and for our homebound members. It’s such a pleasure to see the looks of joy on their faces when they hear those familiar songs. Bringing delight to others is such a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon, so come join us.

Sunday mornings at 9:15 am is Sunday School for ages 3 through 6th grade. The program is based on our Hands On Bibles and features making crafts, games, and solving puzzles which help us understand the stories in our Hands On Bibles.

Teen Talk, for anyone in 7th grade and above, meets on Sunday mornings at 9:15 am to talk about God and Jesus, how our lives are influenced by them and how we can be an influence to others around us. There are so many things that try to manipulate us away from God. Come and find other teens who want to make their faith stronger.

Sunday worship service is at 10:30 am and is led by Rev. Craig Stout, our Interim Pastor. We welcome visitors and friends to join us for worship every Sunday.

Upcoming Events:

Dec. 4 –Teen Choir at 9 am; Sunday School at 9:15 am; Worship at 10:30 am

Dec. 7 –Kid’s Choir at 6:30 pm; Chancel Choir at 7 pm
