Shrine Mont 2024 !

Emmanuel + more than 50 others from 6 churches

went to “A Place Apart” this past weekend.

There were lessons on the canticles, Morning Prayer, Compline, chanting and singing, crafts, swimming, hiking to the cross, following the labyrinth, and great food!

Although there were many planned activities, above all, there was ample time for quiet and rest.

Closing the Gap Between Religion and Life

 

 

 

“As Emmanuel’s delegate, a particular highlight of the 3 day event was the address by our new bishop – Mark Stevenson.  I found his words spiritually focussed and inspiring, as did many of the more than 430 delegates who filled the convention hall in Fredericksburg.”  – John Kauffmann

Church Facelift 2023 !

 

With Vestry approval, and under the leadership of our Junior Warden Beth Wilbanks and her husband Bob, the church has undergone an extensive re-painting and is now finished!!

 

 

What you see here is the labor intensive preparation that began weeks ago, removing ALL layers of leathered paint down to the original wood.  This includes all surfaces on the sides and the back of the church that were not painted in the last two years.

 … BEFORE

                   … and AFTER !!

Remembering picnic 2023 … it began with outdoor worship 

… followed by lots of food and fellowship!

A big thank you to Jen Purcell for her wonderful photography!
