On Sunday, June 16, 1946, Helen Louise Albrecht and Karl E. Stewart were united in marriage at the home of the bride by Rev. M.E. Hollensen. A gift has been given to the Emanuel Early Learning Center by Margaret (Maggie) Stewart Clark in memory of her parents.

Note to the Congregation: We have been working hard to make many improvements to our space over the past year. PPC would like to remind everyone to please be mindful of how our space looks to others and try to keep it clear of clutter. We want to present an open and inviting space for everyone.  

Back to School Blessings has been scheduled for August 3rd from 12:00 -2:00.  We need your help on the day of the event.  By Early/Mid-July there will be a sign-up sheet in the gathering space, please donate some time in an area that you are comfortable in doing.  We will need help from 11:00 to 2:30ish.  You don’t have to stay the whole time. Tell us how long you participate.

Gathering Space volunteers needed!  Sign-up sheets for Gathering Space refreshments are now available in the 2nd floor kitchen window for July through December.  Please check the list for a Sunday when you can host.  Need someone to share hosting duties with you?  Just ask and a member of the Board of Fellowship will be glad to do so!  Call or text Lori Campbell at 740-341-8024.

The ELCA Youth Gathering in New Orleans is coming up in July! Thousands of Lutheran youth from all over the world will share in worship, service projects, cultural experiences, and interactive learning, all in the name of Jesus! Nine youth and their adult leaders will be representing Emanuel at the Gathering and we are excited! We would like to invite you to have a share in this experience. Investing in our youth has the potential of great returns for the Kingdom of God! Thanks to all of you who have already supported us through fundraisers. As the big event approaches, we are asking, again, for your support. Those who commit to supporting our travelers will be invited to an investors dinner after the group returns from New Orleans!  There are several ways to invest:

  • PRAYER (pray for spiritual growth, friendships, and safety….)
  • MONEY (we are still short some funds!)
  • SNACK and BREAKFAST ITEMS (individually wrapped for grab-and-go energy)
  • AA BATTERIES (in-kind offering for hurricane relief kits)

You may invest at the table in the Gathering Space or by contacting the church office. Thank you!

Summer Jesus Don’t forget to take Jesus with you everywhere you go this summer. Does he make a stir, do people ask about him, does he encourage you to spread the word or God’s love? Take pictures and send them to Contact Dee if you still need to make a summer Jesus. Pictures will be posted at the church and on Facebook.

Aluminum Can Drive – The Youth Group will be taking cans to Sims Recycling as a fundraiser for the New Orleans trip. There will be a collection bin in the hallway. Cans will be collected now through July!

Join us for Book Study! Bishop Daniel has stated 2024 will be the Year of Rest. To join in this process, we will work through “Keeping the Sabbath Wholly – Ceasing, Resting, Embracing, Feasting” by Marva J. Dawn. This book is more about living a holistic spiritual life, and goes far beyond just keeping Sabbath. We have in-person gatherings on Thursdays at 11:30a and 5:30p. We also have a virtual session on Sunday nights at 6:30p. If you would like the zoom link for the virtual session, send an email to Pastor Mike.

Feed the Need is currently in need of canned green beans, peas, and corn, ground beef, lunchmeat, peanut butter cracker sandwiches, soft taco shells, and boxed variety packs of chips. Donations can be placed in the kitchen. Thank you again!

Commemorative Anniversary Ornaments will go on sale Sunday, June 16th in the parlor during the luncheon and will be available on Sundays in the Gathering Space while Supplies last on Sundays
