Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience. – Colossians 3:12

Senior Warden Update

I want to welcome Christiann Howard to Emmanuel Church. Christiann received blessings and prayers as she formally joined our congregation at the 10:00 AM service on July 7, 2019. Welcome!

Here is a brief bio about Christiann:
“From the first service at Emmanuel, I felt the Lord was calling me to a new home,” says Christiann. She is joining the congregation at Emmanuel and the world-wide Episcopal Church after a long search for a denomination that expresses Christ’s love as she has come to know it.

Christiann moved to Coos Bay two years ago and shares a house with her spritely 89-year-old mother and two dogs. She loves to hike the trails along our beautiful coastline.

Christiann also spends time in the Seattle area where her two daughters and two granddaughters live, and she travels a lot for her work as a writer.

Christiann thanks everyone at Emmanuel for such a warm welcome and their commitment to being Christ’s love in the world.
