ALL Emmanuel Activities Canceled

EMMANUEL’S CHURCH COUNCIL HAS SUSPENDED 
 
ALL ACTIVITIES THROUGH MARCH 31st
 
(Check back each TUESDAY hereafter for an UPDATE!!!)
 
As we start another week with the virus continuing its rampage and bringing us anxiety and discomfort even if we are not directly affected by it.  We can find peace in knowing that God is with us and will guide us through these difficult times.  Since we are unable to meet together during these times, we need God’s word to comfort and sustain us.  Fortunately, God has blessed Emmanuel with an electronic ministry that allows us to broadcast live Pastor Carpenter’s inspirational message to sustain us through the Gospel of Christ on each Sunday morning and each Wednesday Evening. 
 
Virtual Coffee Fellowship–Sunday Mornings at 9:15 am–To learn more GO HERE!!!
 
Emmanuel continues the ‘Live Broadcast” of the 10:30 am Sunday Morning Worship Service and the Wednesday evening Midweek Lenten Service at 6:30 pm. The services will be conducted by limited staff and volunteers, the pastor, organist, song leader, PowerPoint operator, sound operator, and the person live-streaming, each week.  We encourage everyone to follow along at home. 
 
To watch the Live Broadcast of the 10:30 am Sunday Morning Worship Service or the 6:30 pm Wednesday Evening Midweek Lenten Worship services by GOING HERE!! Also, you may use this link to watch previous broadcasts.
 

The sanctuary will be open on Sunday mornings from 8:00 am to 10:00 am for anyone who wants to pray or just be with God.

We will monitor the situation and make future decisions by Thursday morning of each week. We will keep everyone informed of Emmanuel’s decision through the elcnwa.org website.
