Volunteers Needed for Sound Team
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.
Family Ministry News
As some of our teachers are cycling off this fall, our children's ministry is in search of some new faces to share the message of Jesus with the children of Emmanuel. If you're interested in doing this important work and being a part of the Family Ministry Team, please contact Beth Youmans for commitment details and possible next steps. We believe Emmanuel's kids and our Lord deserve the best... could this be you?
