Wednesday Wireless - Immanuel's Weekly News Update

Guest Preacher

On Sunday, May 20 we will have a guest preacher, Logan Taylor, at Immanuel as we celebrate the Day of Pentecost. Logan is a graduate of Virginia Theological Seminary and is in the process of being ordained as a deacon in the Diocese of Virginia. If you aren't able to attend our Shrine Mont Parish Weekend, please do come to our regular 10:00 AM worship service to welcome Logan to Immanuel. The Rev. Chris Miller and Justin Williams will be back from Shrine Mont in time for the 10:00 AM service.

Eagle Scout Project Fundraiser

A local Scout is offering his Eagle Scout project to Immanuel. He is putting a lot of effort into cleanup around the sheds behind the playground. A fundraiser dinner for his work is being held at Fairfield Presbyterian Church on Friday, May 18 at 6 PM. To RSVP email RSVP518@yahoo.com or call (804) 908-0800. Take-out is available too!

Parish House Renovation Project Update

Preparations continue to progress well for the ceiling and floor updates in the Parish House. As soon as the Cherub School year comes to a close, we will begin more thorough work on the building. You can expect that the main reception area of the Parish House will have limited access during most of June and July. We will guarantee access to restrooms every Sunday. If you have questions, please speak with Pat Cowling, Warren Rice, or the Rev. Chris Miller. 

Thursday Bible Study

Our last bi-weekly Bible Study of the program year will take place next Thursday, May 24 at 7:45 AM in the Parish House. Please join us as we study the readings for Trinity Sunday: http://lectionarypage.net/YearB_RCL/Pentecost/BTrinity_RCL.html.

Spring Adult Formation Class

After refreshments on Sundays through May 27 we will explore various New Testament passages which can lend insights for living as Christians in the present day.  We will begin in Acts and end in Revelation, hearing what Paul, the writer of Hebrews, and John have to say about following in the footsteps of Jesus. No preparation is required; each class will be a stand-alone lesson, so join us when you can!  For more info about the class, contact Joan Beal.

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.
