Commissioning of Teachers
Parish Picnic & Bake Off
Attention young and old bakers! There will be a bake off at the Parish Picnic. If you would like to enter a cake, pie, torte, crumble, crisp, cookie, or cupcake, please sign up in the foyer! All skill levels are invited and welcome to participate. If you are interested in serving as a judge, please talk to Phyllis Harvey or Laurie Hay.
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 be during the Parish Picnic. The first day of Sunday school will be September 20th at 9:00 a.m.
This promises to be an exciting new year with lots of new faces. I am looking forward to seeing you on the 13th and working with all of the kids throughout the year.
THE FEAST OF SAINT FRANCIS
BLESSING OF THE ANIMALS
CALLING ALL PETS
We will offer the blessing of animals on Sunday October 4th during our 10:30 a.m. worship. Everyone is invited to bring their pet, but please be sure you can keep your pet under control at all times. If it is not practical to bring your pet, it is fine to bring a picture, or other representative item (like a stuffed animal) instead.
IMMANUEL AIDS WALK
Saturday, September 26th
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 it's 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.
