Oct 5 | Quilt Ownership Opportunity Ahead!
Do you love pretty quilts? Have you always wanted one but didn't think you could afford one? The Mission Quilt Group at Emanuel would like to present an opportunity for you to purchase one via silent auction during the month of September. Kathryn Paulsen left a partially finished "Civil War" pattern quilt top to our group when she passed away. Gladys Shook has finished the quilt and it will be displayed and bids taken for it the last three weeks of September. The auction will close and the purchaser's name announced on Sunday, October 5.
Sep 21 | Outdoor Worship Service
Our annual outdoor worship service each year is always a special time to enjoy the beauty of the day and a more informal service. This year, our outdoor service will be held Sunday, September 21, at 10:00 a.m. on the north side (Curtis Street side) of the church. Bring a lawn chair and dress casual. In the case of inclement weather, we will be inside.
Sep 13 | Area 5 State Fair Lock-In
This weekend, September 13-14, Emanuel is hosting its annual State Fair Lock-In for Area 5 Youth. Attendees will meet at 5:30 p.m. and attend the Saturday service, then walk to the fairgrounds as a group. At Fair closing, the group will return to the church for the lock-in and will be dismissed after a light breakfast Sunday morning. Those attending need to bring a sleeping bag or pillow and blanket and money for gate admission and food/rides.
