FLOWER ARRANGEMENTS IN THE NEW YEAR
: If you are interested in placing flowers or a plant on the altar, lectern or pulpit areas in honor of a family member, birthday, special holiday or other reason, please sign the poster board on the wall across from the church office. Marsha or Elizabeth will contact you for details that week. You may provide the arrangement yourself or they will make it for you. This is a ministry which allows you to remember special occasions or those close to you for our Sunday worship services and assist the church in providing arrangements each Sunday.
SUNDAY RADIO BROADCAST:
If you are interested in sponsoring a KWED 1580AM radio broadcast of our Sunday service in honor of a family member, birthday, holiday or other special event, please contact Sherry in the church office and sign the poster board in the hall across from the office. Our radio broadcaster of the week will announce your sponsorship on air during the service. This ministry allows you to remember special occasions during our worship services while, at the same time, defraying Emanuel’s budget costs to sponsor a weekly Sunday broadcast.
