Senior Warden Update
These are exciting and rewarding times for Emmanuel. It’s the start of Advent and following that, we welcome Rev. Patti as our new priest!
I want to thank Pat Cross for his dedication and hard work on collecting the pledges for our 2020 Stewardship Drive.
Pat reports that we have 48 pledges in hand totaling $162,000! There are 28 increased pledges, 10 pledges stayed the same, 6 pledges decreased and there were 4 new pledges. There are still a few pledges yet to be turned in so the total might go even higher.
This is an outstanding show of support from our congregation! What a great leap of faith from everyone as we look forward to 2020 and our new priest, Rev. Patti Hale.
I hope to see many of our congregation at the Evening Song service as we enter the Advent Season. I know Terrye & I are really looking forward to this special and wonderful way to start Advent.
Emmanuel Church will welcome the season of Advent with an Evening Prayer service on Sunday, December 1, at 4:30 p.m. Our Choir will lead the service, which will include music and song, candle lighting, prayer, and readings of scripture. All are welcome to attend.
For those of you that knew Jack & Marilyn Stevens, there will be a memorial service for Jack at Emmanuel on Saturday, Dec 7, at 11AM. Many of us remember Jack fondly as “the Mayor of Glasgow”. He will be missed!
The Preschool is having their Christmas Program Wednesday, December 18. John Sweet and I are organizing food and volunteers to help the kids and their parents celebrate their Christmas Program. If you’d like to help, either with time or food, let us know.
