Emmanuel Baptist Church

December 13, 2022

EBC Family,

I hope you’ll join us this Wednesday night for dinner at 5:00 and then Christmas caroling at 6:00. Visiting our less mobile church members is always a special time. It’s an opportunity to remind them that we love and remember them. Even if you don’t consider yourself a “singer”, come share a smile and a hug with members of our Church Family that you don’t get to see on Sundays!

We approved the 2023 Budget and Committees yesterday morning right after the service. Thank you to our Finance and Nominating Committees for your work. And thank you to those who have agreed to serve on committees this year. Your service enables us to be good stewards of our resources and helps us manage our organization well so that your pastors and fellow members can focus their energies on ministering to others in the name of Jesus.

We will have a Christmas Eve service at 6:00 p.m. and a Christmas Day service at 10:45 a.m. I’m looking forward to worshipping our Savior with you at those times.

May you be filled with the hope and joy of Jesus,

Pastor Clint
