MOTHER’S DAY BREAKFAST

All the women of our parish are invited to a Mother's Day Breakfast on Sunday, May 14, at 9 a.m. in the dining room. We wish to honor you for your contribution to our lives by serving you a delicious breakfast between Sunday services. Our young people will be helping to serve. Please add your name to our sign-up sheet in the foyer so that we have an idea of how many will be attending. We hope to see you for breakfast on Sunday, May 14th! Thank you!

Sunday, May 21st serve at SsAM parish hall 7:00- 8:00 am. Parishioners can leave early to be in time for Immanuel's 8:00 a.m. Sunday service. If you can only come Sunday to serve that is fine.

CONFIRMATIONS, RECEPTIONS, AND REAFFIRMATIONS

Due to the retirement of our bishop, all churches will participate in regional confirmations this year. Our date is June 4th. Please speak to the rector if you may be interested.


WALK-ABOUTS: SAVE THE DATES

As we move closer to the election of a new Bishop for the Diocese of Delaware, there will be three "walk-abouts" in our diocese. The dates/locations are listed below. Starting times will be announced later but all will take place in the evening.


 • Wednesday, June 28, 2017 - at Christ Church in Greenville

 • Thursday, June 29, 2017 - at St. Peter 's in Lewes

 • Friday, June 30, 2017 - at Christ Church in Dover


What is the purpose of the Walk-About?

The Walk-About provides a way to introduce the candidates for Bishop to the people of the diocese. This is also an opportunity for the candidates to see a sample of the churches and ministries that are representative of the diocese. The Walk-About is a part of the discernment process in which people of the diocese are asked to listen and prayerfully consider who it is that God is calling to be our next Bishop. This is not intended to be a time to discuss issues but rather a part of the discernment process for both those attending and the candidates.


Who should attend the Walk-About?

All those who will be voting during the election of the new Bishop should plan on attending one of the Walk-About sessions. Other parishioners and non-voting clergy are certainly invited and encouraged to attend. This is your opportunity to hear and meet the candidates before the electing convention.




Immanuel is a Welcoming Community,

Celebrating and Sharing the Good News of Jesus

through Worship, Prayer, Learning, and Service.
