Staff HolidaysPastor John will be on holidays until July 10th.  He will return to the office on July 11th.  Please contact the office, Pastor Corey or one of the deacons for assistance.

GPS leaders and helpers needed: Each Sunday, GPS is led by a group of leaders and helpers who have prepared a lesson for Emmanuel’s children ages 3 to grade 8. The Formation Committee is looking for more volunteers who love the children of our church and want to be an important part of helping them grow in their faith. If you are interested in volunteering to be a GPS leader or helper, please contact Winnie Fehr or Jenn Siemens

Service Opportunity:  We are again looking to add more childcare workers to the roster for this coming September.  If you enjoy spending time with toddlers, and would be willing to give about half an hour of your time, 5 or 6 times a year, this service opportunity is for you!  Please contact June Kehler if you’d be willing to help out in this way.

Are you planning on attending CMU this fall?  CMU offers a church matching grant which matches any funds received from the church up to $500/year.  Applications can be submitted starting June 1.  Contact the church office for more information.  Emmanuel also offers bursaries to students attending other approved Bible schools.   Forms can be downloaded from our website.
