Emmanuel Baptist Church

January 3, 2023

EBC Family,

We are starting a new sermon series this Sunday. We will be walking through the Parables of Jesus from the Gospel of Luke. I’m looking forward to what Jesus will teach us about God and His Kingdom through our study in the coming months.

Join us this Sunday night at 7:00 for a retirement reception for Raelene Amen. Raelene has faithfully served in our nursery for decades. We are grateful for the care she has provided to so many children. Come express your appreciation to her.

Married or engaged couples, now is the time to sign-up for our Healthy Patterns for Marriage Weekend on Saturday, January 28 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. We have invited Pastor Andy McDonald (from Craig and Meredith’s previous church) to spend the day with us. He will be giving us tools to help us build healthy marriages for God’s glory.

I’m grateful to belong to the EBC Family,

Pastor Clint
