a welcoming, affirming, justice-seeking congregation

The Worship Committee and the Ministry and Personnel Committee have arranged for Nancy to have occasional Sundays off for rest and rejuvenation. Next Sunday Lesley Harrison will return to lead worship at Immanuel. Although she led us in informal worship around tables on the Sunday after Christmas, she will follow our usual worship format next Sunday. We are most grateful to Lesley for agreeing to lead us in worship. Nancy will be in the office as usual in the coming week, and will be available to attend to pastoral care concerns.
