Wednesday Wireless - Immanuel's Weekly News Update
Church Office Closed Nov 22-24
The church office will be closed from November 22-24 for the Thanksgiving holiday. Should any pastoral need arise you may still call the Rev. Chris Miller at (703) 203-2329.
Advent Lessons and Carols
On Sunday, December 3 at 10:00 AM we will begin our celebration of Advent with a service of Lessons and Carols combined with Holy Eucharist. Please join us for a fun, festive service.
On Tuesday, December 12 at 7:00 PM we will have a special service of Evensong. This is an opportunity to participate in a sung service of Evening Prayer and to make extra space for reflection and preparation as we await the coming of the Christ Child.
Parish Work Day
On Sunday, December 10 we will gather for refreshments after the service and then will have a work day. The primary objective is to cleanup the leaves. If you have a leaf blower, please bring it with you. If leaf blowing is not your dream job, we have other tasks to accomplish as well. Feel free to dress in your work clothes for church.
Sunday, December 24
Christmas Eve day is a Sunday this year. We will have our regular 10:00 AM service of Holy Eucharist that morning. It will be a simple spoken service with no music and we will celebrate the Fourth Sunday of Advent. For Christmas Eve services, we will have our usual 4:00 PM service, which is especially open to families with children, and our 11:00 PM service with carol singing at 10:30 PM.
We will gather in the library following refreshments on Sundays to continue our study of Matthew. Our focus in this class comes from the work of N.T. Wright, a prominent New Testament theologian. "Tom" Wright emphasizes Jesus as Messiah and Teacher and proposes that His life announced the Kingdom of God on earth. For information contact Joan Beal.
Godly Play meets on the first, third, and fifth Sundays of each month. Godly Play is a curriculum designed to help children explore faith through stories. Godly Play is open to 3 year olds up to 5th graders.
