As we return to in-person worship at Emmanuel, we will respect the Governor's recommendation that individuals who are 65 and above, or who have an underlying at-risk health condition, use caution. With this guidance in mind, our weekly worship services and some Bible studies will still be offered online for those persons and for anyone who is uncomfortable worshiping in person.
We will continue to print news, special events, and prayer requests in the pastor’s letter under “This Week at Emmanuel” on the NEWS page of this website.
BUILDING FAITH IN THE FAMILY. In addition to online broadcasts of our services, we are providing a one-page resource, “Building Faith in the Family,” to help families explore and extend Bible readings and sermons each week. To access this resource, click on the following link: BUILDING FAITH. (It also will be printed on the final page of weekend bulletins.)
You may have a printed copy of "Building Faith" mailed to your home by contacting Becki or Jen in the church office.
If you would like to incorporate music into your family service, you will find helpful resources on our Vimeo page: https://vimeo.com/showcase/
STUDY GUIDE FOR SUNDAY READINGS
To help familiarize you with the Bible readings for the coming week's worship service, we have prepared a study guide with notes and questions to print and use in your home. This is the same study guide used in the 10 a.m. Wednesday Pastor's Bible Class. A new study guide will be available each Wednesday. Click on this link to access the guide.
In addition, the following link will take you to "The Pastors' Study," a video of Pastors Eggold and Sheafer discussing the study-guide notes and questions used in the Wednesday Pastor's Bible Class: https://vimeo.com/486434689
A new study guide and video discussion will be available each week.
A printed version of the weekly sermon is accessible here.
To enable you to follow along with hymns, readings, and prayers as you watch the weekend services on line, a printed copy of the bulletin from each service is available at the following links:
5 P.M. SATURDAY • 8 A.M. SUNDAY • 10:30 A.M. SUNDAY.
