Lenten season .

Lent begins on Ash Wednesday, Feb. 26. As we reflect together on the 40 day journey ahead and our need for a Savior. This year, Ash Wednesday will be the kick off of our ENGAGE worship series. This will be a shorter Ash Wednesday service. It will be held from 6:30-7:00 pm. Come and receive the imposition of ashes and prepare for the  journey ahead.


Our lives are very busy. We are always running from one place to the next, often feeling hurried and worn out. Do you have 30 spare minutes in your week? During the season of Lent, we will again be holding our Engage Worship Series. Pastor Mindi will be leading a 30 minute worship service from 6:30-7:00 pm every Wednesday in Lent, starting on Ash Wednesday, Feb 26- April 1st. Come and engage with Jesus for 30 minutes. There will also be a light dinner served at 5:45 pm in the fellowship hall.

Roller Skating

This Sunday offers the opportunity for a skating party with Emmanuel Church from 4:30-6:30pm at Olympic Skating Center. This is not a Youth Ministry event, though Youth Ministry students are invited to attend! Following the skating party, there will be a pizza party here at the church that our students will be joining: We will be meeting for Youth Connection at 6:00pm as usual, but if your student is skating and will just be coming at 6:30 pm for the pizza party, that’s fine, too!) Transportation is not offered to/from the skating center.

SUNDAY, February 23

We will not have a regularly scheduled Youth Connection tonight. Instead, we will be worshipping together with Salt’n Light Youth Ministry at Messiah College. We will leave Emmanuel at 5:30pm and return approximately8:15pm.
