Emmanuel Baptist Church

November 22, 2022

EBC Family,

We had a great time last night at our Church Family Thanksgiving Dinner. The food was delicious and the fellowship was encouraging. By my estimate we had some 40 or so members of Trinity Baptist join us for the meal. They all expressed gratitude for being invited and included at our dinner. As we continue to pray for the future of their church, I hope that we will have other opportunities to open our facilities to them.

I want to say a special thank you to Cheryl Bell and our Kitchen Team! Your service was a blessing to 2 church families last night. Thank you for preparing the turkeys, hams, potatoes, and dressing. Thank you for spending Sunday afternoon preparing to feed all of us. Thank you for staying late to clean up. And thank you for serving with cheerful hearts. Y’all are a blessing to EBC!

Speaking of the Kitchen Team, several members of the current team are stepping down including Cheryl Bell who has been leading the team for the last few years - which means there is an opportunity for new people to serve! We need 5 people to join the Team for 2023. If God is prompting you to serve your Church Family in this way, please visit with me about that.

It’s a joy to belong to the EBC Family,

Pastor Clint

Thank you Emmanuel Family,

Thank you for helping children around the world to receive a shoebox gift. We were able to send 83 boxes this year from our church to be distributed around the world. Operation Christmas Child has distributed over 200 million shoeboxes to over 170 countries since it began over 29 years ago in 1993.


The 200 millionth box was being prepared in a special way this year by a young woman named Elizabeth, who received a shoebox gift as a little girl. Elizabeth's adventure will culminate when she finally delivers the celebratory 200 millionth shoebox to a young girl in Ukraine.

Christmas Bell Ringing

December 12 from 4pm - 8pm

We need 8 families or volunteers for the evening. Each shift is 1 hour.

Sign-up sheet is on the bulletin board across from the Worship Center.
