With an average age of 39, we have a lot of young families and children and continue to seek ministries that will meet their needs.

ASH WEDNESDAY WORSHIP -
Ash Wednesday worship will take place on February 10 at 11:00 AM and 7:00 PM at Emmanuel. This worship experience will kick-off our season of Lent calling us to reflection, repentance and renewal – a time we are traditionally called reflect upon our life of faith, repent of those things that get in the way of our relationship with God and others, and turn to God’s grace for forgiveness and renewal. We will celebrate the imposition of ashes – reminding us that we are from dust and to dust we shall return due to our sins and brokenness, the wiping off of ashes to remind us of the forgiveness of sin in our baptism and the hope we find in Christ, and Holy Communion to strengthen us in our Lenten journey.

 

 
VALENTINE’S BINGO BASH -
Emmanuel Lutheran Church is hosting a Valentine’s Bingo Bash on Saturday, Feb 13th from 3:30 – 5:00 PM. This event is designed for adults with developmental disabilities, special needs, and their caretakers. We are also in need of people from Emmanuel to come and help with the bingo cards as well as supply snacks and serve snacks. Please watch for the sign-up sheet in the hallway at church.
