|Don’t miss our annual Thanksgiving Eve Service on Wed., Nov. 22 at 7
p.m. in our sanctuary! This service will include a message by Pastor Rich
and music by our choir and praise team. Bring your family and don’t
miss this celebration of thanks! Nursery will be provided. The offering
that evening will go to our Benevolent Fund needs. We also encourage
you to bring non-food items for the Morrison Food Pantry as there is
always a shortage of these items. Let’s fill the front of the Sanctuary!
We are in need of nursery workers for the Cantata performances & the
Christmas Eve Service. If you would be willing to help out, please sign
up in the Christ Center.
Attention YEAH members: If you have not yet had a chance to pay for
the Dec. 13th “Elf” Circa 21 trip, please do so as soon as possible.
Morrison Helping Hands Christmas Project 2017: Beginning today, you
are invited to take a tag off the tree in the Elevator Foyer, purchase the
item, wrap the item (one box per tag) and attach the tag to the top of the
package. (Please do not write anything on the packages themselves)
**The back of the tag will have some of the child’s likes/interests, if you
would like to include some extra items in your package. All gifts must be
returned to Emmanuel by Sunday, December 17. The gifts purchased
will help local children in need and will be distributed through the
Morrison Food Pantry on Thursday, December 21. Thank you for your
generous support of this project.
