A Busy Summer at Emmanuel

Emmanuel is sponsoring three major events this summer, each representing a significant Program of the congregation: our ministry to the homeless and hungry is supported by the Food Pantry Festival; our Vacation Bible School is an integral part of our Christian Formation program for young people; and the Kelly Memorial Reading Camp reaches out beyond Emmanuel’s doors to provide an important service to the wider community.

Food Pantry Festival: 15 June 2019, 10:00 AM – 2:00 PM

#Crafted: Vacation Bible School, 22-26 July 2019, 9:00 – 12:30

Emmanuel Church members and family members can sign up now for our 2019 Vacation Bible School, #Crafted. Students and volunteers agree that this is one of the highlights of Emmanuel’s Christian Formation program, and everyone has a good time, all the while learning to feed their spiritual cravings.

Registration will be opened to the public beginning 5 May 2019, and we always have strong interest from our neighbors.

There is a limit of 35 students, so get your registrations in ASAP.

Forms are available in the back of the church or from the church office. Or …

Registration forms for students can be downloaded here: VBS Reg’n.

Registration forms for Youth and Adult Volunteers are also available here: VBS Vol.


Joan Kelly Memorial Reading Camp, 5-9 August 2019, 8:00 – 4:30

This Diocesan-wide ministry was created by our Deacons, and Emmanuel will offer the program this year in memory of The Rev’d Deacon Joan Kelly, who died suddenly in March. The program is aimed at academic reading support for children in the community who need a little extra help. Mornings are spent in reading exercises and afternoons are devoted to traditional “summer camp” activities. We provide meals and snacks each day as well. For more information and contact information, download the flyer here: R Camp.

The Rev’d Canon Dr. Mark Gatza,
