Wednesday Wireless - May 23, 2018

Join us this Sunday as we celebrate Trinity Sunday.

Wednesday Wireless - Immanuel's Weekly News Update

Cherub Graduation

Cherub Graduation takes place this Thursday and Friday from 9 AM to 12 PM on both days. Unless absolutely needed, please stay away from the church property during those hours so that the parking lot can be utilized for Cherub Graduation. 

Calling All Graduates

If you or a family member are graduating from high school, college, or another degree program, please email the Rev. Chris Miller at cmiller@immanueloc.org by Friday, May 25 to make sure all are included as we celebrate graduation.

Thursday Bible Study

Join us tomorrow morning at 7:45 AM in the Parish House Library for Bible Study as we reflect on this Sunday's lectionary readings. The readings can be found here:http://lectionarypage.net/YearB_RCL/Pentecost/BTrinity_RCL.html.  This is our last Bible Study of the program year so join us if you can. 

Prayer List Updates

Please email the Rev. Chris Miller (cmiller@immanueloc.org) and Britton Trimble (btrimble@immanueloc.org) if you have anyone you would like added to our prayer list. Additionally, please review the prayer list this coming Sunday to see if there is anyone that you would like removed from the prayer list as circumstances change. 

Ordination of Gail Goldsmith

A "beloved child of our parish," Gail Goldsmith, will be ordained to the Transitional Diaconate on Saturday, June 9th at Epiphany, Herndon. Please keep Gail in your prayers on June 9th as the bishop lays hands on her and ordains her a Deacon in the Church. 

Parish House Renovation Project Update

Next week 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. 

Spring Adult Formation Class

After refreshments on Sunday, May 27 we will hold our last Adult Formation class of the program year. We will explore various New Testament passages which can lend insights for living as Christians in the present day.  We began in Acts and will 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 is a stand-alone lesson, so you are welcome to join in!  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

During the summer months, please feel free to show up to church early on Sunday morning, find a robe, and hop in the procession with the choir. We welcome all levels of singing ability to join the Immanuel Choir.

CornerStone Food Bank

Thanks for your continued support of CornerStone's food pantry! May's suggested items include peanut butter and jelly.
