Almighty God to You All Hearts are Open:

As we continue to discern God's call in our lives we give thanks to all those who have pledged for 2018. Please remember to put a key up on the heart once you pledge. The heart is already filling up! Also know that you can reach out to Chris Miller or John Fulton with any questions about stewardship.

Trunk or Treat Volunteers Needed

From 4-5 PM on Saturday, October 28 we will have trunk or treaters in the church circle. Please email Chris Miller at cmiller@immanueloc.org if you would like to host a trunk. Also, we will gladly accept candy donations at church on Sunday to help supply the trunks. 

Music in the Old Church Presents: Desirée Roots and Friends

Please join us at Immanuel for a concert, Exploring My Roots - From Jazz to Gospel featuring Desirée Roots Centeio on November 11, 2017, 7:00 P.M.. Tickets are $15.00 per person or $25.00 per couple.  Tickets can be bought at the door or by calling the Parish Administrator at 804-779-3454.

Desirée Roots Centeio didn't really have a choice but to become a singer.  The youngest of five, Desiree grew up in a home that was full of music all the time.  Her older siblings sang and played instruments and her gifted parents were professional musicians in the Gospel and Jazz fields.  She began singing in church at age 4 and church music has continued to be a focus in her life.  She studied Classical Voice at Virginia Union University, but Jazz and Theatre is where she has excelled. She has starred in over 40 productions in local and regional professional theatre through the years, winning awards for many of them.  Her Jazz roots are just as strong as she is very active in The Richmond Jazz Society and recently recorded her own CD, Don't Ever Stop Dreaming.

Help Needed During Bunny's Vacation

Our sexton, Bunny Coles, is on vacation October 13-21. If you can help clean the church for Sunday, October 22, please call Britton Trimble at 779-3454 or email her at btrimble@immanueloc.org.

Adult Formation

We will gather in the library following refreshments on October 22 to continue our study of Matthew. Our focus in this class comes from the work of N.T. Wright, a prominent New Testament theologian. "Tom" Wright emphasizes Jesus as Messiah and Teacher and proposes that His life announced the Kingdom of God on earth. For information contact Joan Beal.

Godly Play

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