The Parish Life Commission, the Music Department, and Christian Formation are collaborating on a musical sensation for your enjoyment during Advent season. "Camel Lot" makes its Emmanuel debut Sunday, December 16th. ”Camel Lot” tells the story of Jesus Christ's birth from a child's imagination, vivid with mirth. All ages are welcome to join the cast, whether on stage or off, it will be a blast.
“Camel Lot” rehearsals are Sunday afternoons 4-5:30 pm, except for November 25th.

Wednesday, December 5, is the last time this year that we provide a complete fried chicken dinner at the Judeo-Christian Outreach Center (JCOC) to approximately 100 hungry/homeless Virginia Beach residents. The diners tell us that this fried chicken meal is their favorite of all meals served!
Join Rachel Gilchriest and Lorene Verity who are signing up to bring food items. Meal servers are also needed. The sign-up board is in the Parish Hall.
Operation Christmas Child is a project of Samaritan’s Purse, an international relief organization. Its mission is to provide shoeboxes filled with small toys, hygiene items and school supplies, along with the Good News of Jesus Christ as a means of reaching out to children around the world. The boxes are shipped to children ages two to fourteen affected by war, poverty, natural disaster, famine, disease, and children living on Native American reservations in the U.S.
Every November as one of their ministries the Emmanuel Crafters group packs Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes with items they have made and purchased throughout the year.
Thank you Crafters for your faithful participation in Operation Christmas Child and George Chafee for delivering the shoeboxes every year to the local receiving church. ... See MoreSee Less
