Emmanuel Baptist Church

November 29, 2022

EBC Family,

The Christmas season is upon us. There will be multiple ways for you to celebrate the birth of our Savior this month with your Church Family. Sunday night 12/11 at 6:00 p.m. is Jingle Jam. This is an event to invite your neighbors to; especially families with children. It is an hour of games, songs, silliness, and sharing the Christmas story.

We will celebrate our Silent Lord’s Supper on Sunday night 12/18 from 6:00 to 6:30. This is a “come and go” event in the Worship Center for you and your family to meditate on the death of Jesus and the forgiveness we have in Him. Our Christmas Eve service will be at 6:00 p.m. on 12/24 followed by a Christmas Day service at 10:45 a.m. (Grow Groups are not scheduled to meet on Christmas Day). I hope you will take advantage of these opportunities as well as our regular meeting times to celebrate Jesus this Christmas season.

We have 2 special called business meetings in December. The first will be directly after the morning service on 12/11 to vote on the 2023 Budget and 2023 Committees. The second meeting will be Wednesday night 12/21 at 6:00 p.m. to consider recommendations from our Personnel Committee as well as our Deacons.

I’m grateful to belong to the EBC Family,

Pastor Clint
