The Angel Tree is now up in the parish hall for giving gifts to our Christmas Families adopted through King George Social Services. Each angel lists a child’s or senior’s name, age, family number, and an item on his or her wish list. Please sign the spreadsheet next to the tree so we can keep track of who is responsible for the items.
Your WRAPPED gifts with the angel attached are due back at the parish hall by December 16. Thank you so much for your generosity in supporting this important outreach to our community.
Collecting New Sweatshirts and Crew Socks for Veterans

Advent Family Celebration with Holy Eucharist December 16th at 10:00 a.m. at Emmanuel
All youth and their friends are invited to participate in the Advent Family Service on December 16th at Emmanuel.
In preparation for the celebration of Christmas the story of the nativity will be presented with costumes, readings and carols. However, since it is during the season of Advent, we will not be calling it a “Children’s Christmas Pageant” but rather an “Advent Family Celebration”.
Tentative Details: To prepare for our special service we will have a rehearsal luncheon at the parish hall on Saturday, December 15th at 11 o’clock. We will go over parts, practice songs, and distributed costumes, and then we’ll enjoy lunch together (with holiday goodies for dessert!). If you are unable to make it on Saturday, don’t worry. We will have extra costumes at the church the day of the service so that everyone may join us.
Christmas Eve Service — Monday, December 24th at 5:00 p.m.
