PRAYER REQUEST FOR ELECTING THE ELEVENTH BISHOP OF DELAWARE

Dear Immanuel Family,

Please pray for our process here in the Diocese of Delaware as we discern who God is calling to be our next bishop. Pray to for our five candidates: Laura, Michael, Kevin, Patty, and Scott. And finally, pray for the clergy and lay delegates of our diocese, remembering especially Fr. Kim, Deacon Sheila, Cam Hay, and Phyllis Harvey, who will gather on July 15th to elect our next bishop.


FELLOWSHIP HOUR HOSTS NEEDED

Volunteers are needed to host the Fellowship Hour after 10:30 a.m. Sunday liturgies. There is an immediate need for July 23rd. Please consider volunteering for this ministry of hospitalityy. A sign-up sheet is posted on the bulletin board in the foyer.

SUMMER CHOIR

The parish choir is taking a break for the summer, but we have an impromptu choir with a "One Song, One Sunday" commitment - all parishioners are invited. We rehearse before the service to learn a simple hymn or anthem to present in worship that day. If you enjoy singing and would like to do this in the summer, speak to Steven Patchel or just show up one Sunday morning at 10:00 a.m.
