Wednesday Wireless - Immanuel's Weekly News Update

Order Your Easter Lily, Tulip or Azalea by Sunday, March 18

Palm Sunday

Please join us Sunday, March 25 for Palm Sunday. We will begin this special service in the Parish House at 10:00 AM with a procession to the church.

Holy Week Services

Services for Maundy Thursday and Good Friday will be at 7:00 PM on March 29 and March 30, respectively. Additionally, we will have a simple service of Noonday Prayer at 12:00 PM on Good Friday. 

New Easter Sunday Service Times

As an update to our original Easter Sunday schedule, we are offering an Easter Sunrise Service in the cemetery at 7:00 AM and our regular 10:00 AM service in the church.

Easter Decorations

Easter Sunday is on April 1. For our Easter services we are offering the opportunity to all to decorate one of our church windows in honor, memory, or thanksgiving of someone. If you are interested in doing this, please contact Boo Elmore or Marion Jones by March 15. This could be a wonderful way to start a family tradition.

Quiet Prayer During Lent

Mark your calendars for this Lenten season's Quiet Prayer Group from 7:15 p.m. to 8:15 p.m. on six Tuesdays held in Immanuel's sanctuary. Each session includes a period of comfortable silence to listen to whatever the Spirit reveals. This ancient prayer practice is reported throughout the Bible, and in the writings of many disciples and saints. This year's theme focuses on gratitude, which was requested by previous participants. Come as you are. No experience necessary. Questions? E-mail Betty Booker Morriss at bettybooker@gmail.com or call/text her cell at (804) 397-9155.

Bible Study During Lent

On Thursday mornings at 7:45 AM we will gather at Cold Harbor Restaurant in Mechanicsville for fellowship and Bible study. Come once or come as often as you can during Lent. Please speak with the Rev. Chris Miller or David Jennings if you have questions.

Cherub Art Show

On Thursday, March 15 at 6:30 PM the Cherub School will hold its annual Primary Colors Art Show! There is a raffle with fun items to win and the Cherub School is looking for items to be donated to the raffle. Past items include: crafts, home decor, jellies and jams, cakes and cookies, jewelry, art, and gift baskets. Kid friendly and adult friendly items are welcome. Please bring items to be donated to the Cherub School by March 13.

Adult Formation

We will have a special theme for Adult Formation during Lent. Please join us in the library of the Parish House after worship on Sundays. For more info about the class, contact Joan Beal.

Godly Play

Godly Play meets on the first, third, and fifth Sundays of each month. It is a curriculum designed to help children explore faith through stories. Godly Play is open to 3 year olds up to 5th graders.

Nursery

We have a nursery available every Sunday during our 10 AM service. The nursery is located inside the Parish House building, next to the church.

Choir

Have you ever thought about joining the choir? If so, now is the perfect time! The choir is currently rehearsing at 9:15 AM on Sunday mornings right before worship. You don't need to commit beyond one Sunday at a time. Show up, get a choir robe, and have fun with fellow choir members. If you have any questions, just ask one of the choir members in the blue and white robes after church.  

CornerStone

Thanks for your continued support of CornerStone's food pantry! March's suggestions are canned meats, beans, and soup.
