Men's Discussion Group
"Iron sharpens iron, so a man sharpens the character of his friend" - Proverbs 27:17. The purpose is to have an environment specifically for men who want to be straightforward about their relationships, sins they struggle with, their relationship God, and sexual/emotional purity. As a group we will share what's going on in our life, hold each other accountable, and grow together by choosing a book/passage of the bible to study. We meet 7pm, every other Tuesday, contact Tom Caputo.

All Emmanuel Events
Serving Emmanuel and the Arlington Community
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.
