September 10 Church Kick Off!
Family Ministry Update: This fall, Emmanuel will begin using a strategy for Family Ministry called Orange. Orange is simple. It starts with two individual influences in a child’s life: Home and Church. Alone, these two work hard to ensure that each child has a better future. But when they’re combined, the home and the church will have a much greater impact! That is Orange and it kicks off on Sunday September 10th!
- First Look is designed lovingly and expertly for preschoolers. First Look is passionate about making sure that preschoolers know THREE truths before Kindergarten: GOD MADE ME, GOD LOVES ME, JESUS WANTS TO BE MY FRIEND FOREVER. Like us on Facebook at Emmanuel Firstlook or follow us on instagram @emmanuelfirstlook
- 252 Kids is designed to provoke discovery and invite kids into a new understanding of how to grow in relationship with Jesus. Everything we teach in 252 Kids is based on one of three basic, but powerful, truths modeled by Jesus in Luke 2:52. I NEED TO MAKE THE WISE CHOICE, I CAN TRUST GOD NO MATTER WHAT, I SHOULD TREAT OTHERS THE WAY I WANT TO BE TREATED.

- Emmanuel Students is a place for both Jr and Sr High students to experience Wonder, Discovery and Passion! Focused around the 3 core values of Integration (believing that students are a huge part of everything that the Church does). Small Groups (growing smaller = tighter relationships) and Passion (Faith has to be lived out with passion, drive and focus) we live to inspire and equip a generation of passionate students to change the world and revive the Church. We meet Sunday evenings at 7 beginning September 10th. Follow us on Instagram @emmanuelchurchstudents or on twitter @emmanuel_xp3
Bursaries – If you are attending a Christian high school or post secondary school this year, the church offers bursaries of up to $500. Applications are available on our website or by contacting the office. Application deadline is August 31.
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
An opportunity for baptism on Thanksgiving Sunday – If you’ve been considering baptism and church membership at Emmanuel, I’d like to tell you about an opportunity. Several persons have expressed interest in baptism and we’ll have a Baptism Service at Emmanuel on Sunday October 8 (Thanksgiving morning). In preparation for this, I am planning to offer a one Saturday morning or two weeknight evening faith conversation class for those being baptized; it will take place either in late August or early September. If you have been considering baptism and waiting to be part of a group experience, we’d love to include you in this baptism / membership service. But please be in touch with Pastor John within a week if at all possible. Even if you have questions before deciding this is something you might want to do, please be in touch with Pastor John. Baptism offers an opportunity to make a public declaration of faith, to celebrate your decision to follow Jesus, and to invite the church family to walk with you in your journey of faith!
