a welcoming, affirming, justice-seeking congregation

The Flowers Today are in loving memory of Stan Patton from Betty and family.

Many Thanks to the Immanuel Players and all who assisted them in producing “A Night in the Theatre”. Your hard work and dedication have resulted in yet another wonderful Dessert Theatre! Special thanks to the Directors, Glen Smyth and Ron Metcalfe and the Producer, Cathy Haining for all their countless hours of work on the production.

A Huge Thank You to All who provided hospitality to one another and our many guests. If you served, baked (all those scrumptious desserts), moved tables, donated money, plus all the behind the scenes kitchen jobs, you were part of the hospitality team. The donated money bought fruit, beverages, extra desserts, napkins, plates, etc. These donations made the work load and the “worry” load much lighter.

Thank you card from Dorothy and Fred Jones’ family is posted on the bulletin board thanking the Immanuel congregation for their memorial services. Please have a look.
