Emmanuel Moms Group
Calling all Moms! Join us at Little Falls Presbyterian Church (6025 Little Falls Rd, Arlington) on the top floor in the "treehouse" from 9:30-11:30 on Friday mornings (10/21, 11/4, 11/18, 12/2, 12/16) as we have a time to dig a little further into James and pray through our week. We're an authentic bunch and especially embrace yoga pants and baseball caps. Childcare is available with an RSVP. Please contact Susan Trent for more info.
Theological Institute - CANCELED
Due to the low volume of RSVPs, we unfortunately need to cancel the Fall Theological Institute tomorrow, Saturday, October 22. We are looking into ways to revisit the classes soon. Thank you for understanding.
Are you new to Emmanuel and want to learn more about the church? If so, you’re invited to an informal luncheon seminar, Sunday, October 23 from 12:30-2pm at GMU. The luncheon also serves as a replacement for our Membership Seminar, but attending does not obligate you to join the church. Please RSVP. Please RSVP by October 20.
All 3rd-5th graders are welcome to join us for a time of fun, food, and Bible study on Sunday, 10/23 from 4:30-6pm at the Muzzall's home! Please contact Chris or Shelby Smith if you have any questions.

All Emmanuel Events
Volunteers Needed for Sound Team Set Up/Take Down
The sound team needs 5 more volunteers to help unload/set up and pack/load the sound equipment. Volunteers only do this once every two months and are paired with other volunteers. This small act of service is integral to the worship team being able to practice on time. Please consider helping in this way. You can contact Israel Ruiz or Nate Telus to sign up.
Emmanuel kids need YOU as there still are needs. One Sunday per month, 10:15-12:15pm, one teacher’s assistant is needed. Please contact Beth Youmans if you’re interested.
Mercy Ministry Opportunities

Sunday Morning Sound Team
Are you technically minded? Do you have a good ear and want to contribute to helping Sunday services run smoothly? If so, please contact the Nate Telus for further information.
Mercy Fund Offering
Every fourth Sunday, we collect a second offering used to provide assistance equally to missions and mercy in Arlington and around the world, as well as supporting the Emmanuel MicroMissions program. If you, or someone you know in Emmanuel, has special and pressing needs, please contact the Emmanuel Deacons.
Emmanuel relies on the gifts and work of its members and regular attendees for its Sunday services. Whether it's preparing the bread and wine for communion or posting signs around the lobby, this is essential in helping the community worship together. To learn more about serving one Sunday per month, please contact Israel Ruiz.
