It has been a productive and worship filled month here at Emmanuel UCC. From our time
during Holy Week to that glorious Easter Sunday, we have been together as one body in Christ,
not only worshipping, but in our times of times of fellowship together.
The month of April holds even more possibilities. More activities for our newly formed
youth group, our planning for a mission trip, more spiritual filled worship, and of course our
famous turkey supper!
The consistory is always hard at work thinking up new ways in which to spread the
Gospel message to our surrounding communities. And Emmanuel UCC is always hard at work
spreading the Gospel message around the world through Our Churches Wider Mission.
April is also the month when the Penn Northeast Conference gathers together for our
Annual Meeting. This will be held Saturday, April 14th at Union United Church of Christ in
Neffs, PA. The annual meeting is open to any UCC member. Consider attending and meet old
friends and make new ones! Our own Jeff Dauber will be a vendor this year offering information
about the Alzheimer’s Association!
The following is some information to remind us that God is Still Speaking. I know He is at
Emmanuel UCC!
God is Still Speaking,
Stillspeaking. It’s the shorter form of “God is still speaking,” a campaign by the United Church
of Christ to remind us that God still has a lot more to say. Since 2004, Stillspeaking has worked
with thousands of UCC churches and individuals across the country to make religion relevant
again and to extend an extravagant welcome to all—because no matter who you are, or where
you are on life’s journey, you’re welcome here. Here at the United Church of Christ.
In 2004, it was concluded that there was a present and real need for the United Church of
Christ to spread its message of extravagant welcome which continues to historically re-shape
our understanding of the Christian faith and proclamation. The UCC responded to this call and
challenge with a new identity and marketing campaign to let all others know that anyone could
find a spiritual home in the United Church of Christ, be strengthened and nurtured in their
faith and be blessed to reach out to others with their God-given gifts and talents.
Today, under one collective identity, we can enthusiastically lift up that the UCC is a
welcoming, justice-minded Christian community. At a time when religion is too often portrayed
as narrow-minded and exclusive, many are raising their VOICES for an alternate vision:

  • Where God is all-loving and inclusive
  • Where the Church of Jesus Christ welcomes and accepts everyone as they are
  • Where your mind is nourished as much as your soul
  • Where Jesus the healer meets Jesus the revolutionary
  • Where together we grow a just and peaceful world

7 Sundays until the day of Pentecost and always honored and proud to be your minister!

Pastor Lou Aita

Remember to get your Weis and Carone’s cards!

This is a wonderful way to support the Youth Group without spending anything extra. You’re just going to spend that money at the grocery store anyway so why not give the Youth Group some help with their finances? For every $1,000 worth of cards they sell, they make $50. Please see Marc on Sunday mornings or you can call Penny at the church office (570-868-5675) during the week.

In addition to the Youth Group’s Weis and Carones Card Fundraisers, we have a Gift Card Fundraiser which is a great way to help our church. The Fundraiser Sheets are on the table in the narthex. Just look over the list (and there’s a lot to choose from) and mark how many cards you want. As with the Youth Group’s fundraiser, this is essentially a “no cost” fundraiser. You are just purchasing gift cards in the amount that you would normally spend at that store or restaurant. The fundraising part is that Emmanuel purchases them at a discount which helps our bottom line. Please pay Lisa Ceaser for your choices. An order will be placed following the First Sunday of each month.

About

Starting in 1849, Emmanuel (then the Reformed Church) began its service to God. Men, women and children would gather in a one-room schoolhouse to worship Jesus Christ. Throughout the years, there has been a great deal of growth at Emmanuel. Membership has grown, the church building has been expanded and lives have been changed spiritually.
