Highlands Voice                       Volume 13, Number 33

September 4, 2016
Courtyard CroppedSM
Immanuel Church, Highlands


As we look forward to a new program year, think about how you might sing a new song. Not only is it part of our faith and tradition, but there are now so many studies revealing the health and social benefits of singing, especially in a group. Of course the choir and choir director heartily invite you to join choir. We love to welcome new singers! But, also remember that we as a congregation will sing some new songs, and some old songs. We are invited to sing everything with freshness and joyfulness of spirit. Hope to hear from you soon!


Saturday, September 24th

10:00 a.m.

Dravo Plaza at the Riverfront, Wilmington

     Join Team Immanuel on Saturday, September 26th, in our 12th 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 at 10:00 a.m. 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, take the short-cut, or even just show up for our group photo. GROUP PHOTO is at 9:45 a.m.! The main point is to be together and help raise money for an important cause.

     It's time to gather your family, friends and co-workers to make Delaware a healthier place. HIV/AIDS is a 100% preventable disease. Together we can make a difference toward taking Delaware out of the top SIX states in the country for per capita HIV infection. Sign-up on the bulletin board at church and you can also register online to help your fundraising at work, etc. This is a collaborative walk of over 40 agencies and churches.

     Please sign-up on the bulletin board in the foyer and you can also register on-line at
