Focusing On Lent At Emmanuel

Throughout the Holy Season of Lent, many people focus on becoming closer to our Lord. Some people do this by giving something up. Others spend more time reading the Bible and praying. Still others give more of their time and talents. There are so many options to bring your life closer to God’s way. Whatever your means, we hope that you will be faithful in your search and we welcome you to join us at Emmanuel as we continue our journey through Lent to the wonder of Easter.

On Wednesdays during Lent our Fellowship Hall will be filled with the appetizing aroma of Lenten suppers. These light suppers begin at 6 pm and will be prepared each week by various members and groups of Emmanuel. We will then join in worship at 7:00 pm as we prepare ourselves through the lessons of Lent to better understand our Lord Jesus, his loving sacrifice and joyous resurrection. Everyone is welcome to enjoy a delicious supper and gather with us for worship. Whether you can come for supper or not, we welcome you to worship.
