Sunday School Registration

The first day of Sunday school is right around the corner. We will have something to offer all kids from ages 4 and up. Registration will during the Parish Picnic. The first day of Sunday school will be September 20th at 9:00 a.m.

Saturday, September 26th

10:00 a.m.

Join Team Immanuel on Saturday, September 26th, in our 11th annual walk to help prevent the spread of HIV/AIDS in Delaware. Did you know that senior citizens and young single women are among the fastest growing populations of new HIV/AIDS infections? Help us be a visible presence in our community as we join with thousands of others to walk for health. Registration starts at 9:00 a.m. at the Riverfront and Step-off is 10:00 a.m. Group photo at 9:45!

The walk is level along the Riverfront on a wide paved surface so there are no hills and its stroller and wheelchair friendly! You can do the 3-mile stroll or take the short-cut or even just show up for our group photo. The main point is to be together and help raise money for an important cause.

Please sign-up on the bulletin board in the foyer and you can also register on-line by clicking on the link below.
