What an action packed morning at Emmanuel! During the 10:00 am service two lovely little girls, Taygen and Katelyn, were welcomed into the Christian Church through the sacrament of Holy Baptism.
The Annual Meeting immediately followed the service with a review of the 2018 budget, election of new vestry members, recognition of outgoing vestry members, and three videos/conversation around the idea of invitation and evangelism.

A festive pot luck lunch in the Parish Hall after the Annual Meeting was enjoyed by all and rounded out a wonderful morning at Emmanuel. Not only did everyone leave filled with the Holy Spirit, but also with very full tummies! ... See MoreSee Less

The names the children choose for the llamas were Cloud, Taco Joe, Snowflake, and Olivia Twinkle! ... See MoreSee Less
