The Worship Committee is looking for a few more people who would be interested in being VPU operators.  It would be approximately a 6 week rotation (dependent on how many sign up).  There would be a training session as well as ongoing support on Sunday mornings.  If you are interested or want more information contact the office or Brendan Froese.

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!
