We are coming to the end of a hot summer! By God’s grace Emmanuel Baptist Church has been growing in spirit and in number. That’s awesome!
What’s happening next at EBC?
- Men’s Connection—Aug. 18th
Men, if you enjoy good food and fellowship, plan to come to the next men’s prayer breakfast on Saturday, August 18th, at 8:00 a.m. right here at the church. This is a special time designed to help men grow closer to one another and to Christ. Hope to see you there.
- VBS Sunday—August 19!
We are ending our kid’s summer event, VBS SpaceQuest, with a celebration! This Sunday, August 19 at 11:00 a.m. we will worship Jesus our Savior and honor the kids who participated in the program during VBS. Following the service we will have dinner on the grounds. Everyone is welcome to join us for some great food and fellowship. You can also volunteer to help with VBS clean-up. We will be putting our classrooms back to “normal” after the dinner. We will have Sunday school at 10:00 a.m. and morning worship at 11:00 a.m. There will be no evening service. Please join our kids and bring your family and friends to help celebrate!
- Spaghetti Dinner Fund Raiser—August 25
Be sure to support the Resistance during our Spaghetti fund raiser on Saturday, August 25! The meal will be irresistible, including spaghetti, bread and dessert. Tickets for a dinner are just $5 and will be available for pick-up from the church on Saturday, Aug 25 from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00p.m. Please remember to bring your ticket(s) when you come. The money raised will be used to fund our youth activity Disney’s Night of Joy.
- Baptisms—August 26
Being baptized is a wonderful thing in a Christian’s life. It’s an outward expression of an inward action! We are having a baptism service on Sunday night at 6:00 p.m. on August 26. Come out and bring your friends and family to this great event! And, if you would like to be baptized there’s still time to prepare. Just let me or a church worker know.
- Promotion Sunday—August 26!
It’s going to be exciting in the Kids Zone on Promotion Sunday! On Sunday, August 26 our children in our Sunday school ministry will graduate to an older class according to their grade level. We also have Bible classes for Adults and youth too! Join the Resistance if you’re in 7-12th grade. We have a young adult Bible class if you’re in your 20’s, 30’s, or 40’s and an auditorium Bible class for those 50 or older! Being a part of a Sunday school class is a great way for you to grow in your relationship with God and with others in the church. All classes begin at 10:00 a.m.
- New Wednesday Recharge Series!
God continues to recharge our EBC family during our Wednesday night worship service at 7:00 p.m.! God blessed the recent “Can I get a Witness?” lesson series. Our focus was learning how we can get more involved in evangelism. I’m looking forward to seeing more guests come and placing their trust in Jesus as a result of each of us doing our part to invite them and share the Gospel!
Next Wednesday, August 22, Dr. Charles Shoemaker will begin a new three-week study! We are always grateful to be able to have Dr. Shoemaker with us to teach us the Word! Be sure to come and bring your family and friends!
EBC’s Wednesday Recharge has relevant ministries for all ages including adults, the Resistance for students in grades 7-12, the Kids Zone for kids in K4-6th grade, and a nursery for children 0-3 years of age.
