Dear Ones,



It’s Friday, the end of the second week of July.

The monsoon season is truly upon us! Yesterday as I was leaving the church there was quite a deluge and the gutters of the streets in Prescott Valley were overflowing with water! It is so wonderful to finally get some rain, and the forecast is for more almost daily for the next ten days. I have seen pictures of hail the size of golf balls on Facebook, and the cloud formations have been breathtaking! Joe Giordano took this picture yesterday of the clouds from Prescott Valley.

Through the end of this month, we will have Tuesday, Friday and Saturday emails. Beginning in August there will be a Tuesday email that will include faith journey enrichment and encouragement and a Friday email that will be a weekly newsletter with a new look.

This month we are collecting backpacks and school supplies for the Humboldt Unified School District. Donations are coming in, and we are putting them around the altar on the chancel; and we are looking forward to blessing them on July 25 during worship and sending them on their way to excited school children as classes begin in August!

Speaking of July 25…we will be celebrating Christmas in July on Sunday the 25th and will be singing Christmas carols and hearing the Christmas story during worship! If you are willing to volunteer to help bake Christmas cookies to share after worship, let me know!

Important! We need volunteers to help after contemporary worship this Sunday, July 18th to move all the tables and chairs out of the Fellowship Hall to prepare for the Blood Drive on Monday, the 19th. Plan to be at the church at noon, and of course, the more people who can help, the faster it will go! Click here to let Mary know in the church office if you can help.

Speaking of the blood drive, have you signed up yet?


We are thrilled that things are slowly getting back to normal…the evidence: there is a Vitalant blood drive scheduled at Emmanuel:

  • Monday, July 19, 1:00 – 5:00 p.m.: Emmanuel Lutheran Church Fellowship Hall, 7763 E Long Look Dr. Prescott Valley! We won’t be posting any other donation opportunities, because we hope that you will schedule to donate at our blood drive. Drop-ins are welcome!


Blood supplies are always low in the summer and donations are especially needed. You can go to the Vitalant website www.vitalant.org and sign up.

While there is no inherent risk of getting coronavirus when you donate blood, donors and staff are required to wear masks or reasonable cloth-based face coverings. Read our COVID-19 FAQs.
