Reverend Isaac delivers the message, Divisi, Male A Cappella Group, offers music, and together, we encourage one another to love deeply, more expansively and transformatively! Looking ahead: Sunday, July 2nd, our 9:30am summer worship services begin. Mark your calendar now!
Our Fun in the Son! outdoor sessions begin for the summer with a focus on “Stories for Growing” especially geared for age two to grade two. Children engage their imaginations in story, song and activity as we explore various storybooks with spirituality themes on the front lawn of Immanuel. Siblings and older children are most welcome and can be involved as helpers for little hands during art activities. Mark your calendars and bring your friends with small children to these fun and interactive mornings this Sunday and on these additional Sundays: July 16th and August 6th. Contact Tracy Gormley at 860-527-8121 or email@example.com for more information.

You won’t want to miss this year’s Block Party on South Marshall Street!! This year, Immanuel is providing the bouncy house – a huge hit with the children. Last year, over 30 people from Immanuel volunteered and mingled with over 500 residents of South Marshall Street at their annual Block Party. We gave away almost 80 bikes and 2,000 children’s books! This year, residents will once again enjoy the bouncy house, great hot dogs and hamburgers, games for the children, and a variety of fun entertainment. Over 25 non-profits from our neighborhood will be providing activities for children and information to their parents.
We hope you will sign up on the insert in this Sunday's Order of Service or on the sign-up sheet in Fellowship Hall to help make this event successful. Choose what might be most fun:
- Grill hot dogs and hamburgers
- Serve the food
- Supervise the bouncy house
- Give away books
- Help paint faces on the children
- Staff the Immanuel table
We are also seeking new or gently used children’s books. Please bring them to Immanuel.
The Block Party, just 3 blocks from Immanuel, begins at Marshall House homeless shelter and stretches past the 16 Habitat houses, to the end of the block where the Karen and Nepali refugees live. This event is a wonderful opportunity for the residents to get to know each other, and, it is a terrific opportunity for us, as volunteers, to get to meet some of our neighbors! For more information, contact Nancy Rion, email@example.com.
Would you like to help others learn? Would you like to know about gardening from someone who knows more than you? Let’s get together to green our corner of the world. Sign up in Fellowship Hall after worship this Sunday!
“A garden isn’t just poetry and decoration. It’s a way to live in relation to the world.”
