Congregational Meeting This Sunday

July 22, 2014

Emmaus will hold a special meeting of the congregation at 10:30 a.m. this Sunday in the Sunset Room. The purpose of the meeting will be to ask the congregation to authorize renegotiation of the church mortgage.

The Listening Corner

July 16, 2014

people210This weekend concludes the small group listening sessions that have been scheduled throughout the summer. Many of you have shared your thoughts and concerns regarding the FaithWorks North congregations worshiping together.

Monday evening, the leaders of the listening groups and one-on-one sessions will meet at St. Andrew to share information gathered. A report of what was heard at the listening sessions, as well as answers to questions raised by members in the listening sessions, will be compiled by August 8 and then shared with the congregations’ members.

Thank you to all of the listening team and to everyone who participated in this process.

FaithWorks Fall Festival

July 15, 2014


GodsWork-OurHands_TshirtMark your calendar for September 7, a day of service, worship, food and fun! We hope to blitz the community with servant workers donning “God’s Work, Our Hands” t shirts, bearing both the ELCA logo and that of FaithWorks as we offer service throughout the community that morning. (Order yours through the church office by August 4.)

Are you willing to help plan the pig roast/potluck for the festival to be held at St. Andrew? Or, maybe being a part of the planning team for outdoor worship or for fun and games is your interest! See Pastor Mary about lending a hand in one of those areas. If service to the community is how you would like to be involved, check in with Caren Lamberton.

There is a place for everyone! Many hands make for light work—and a lot of fun as well!


Alley, Night Out Update

July 14, 2014

We’ve contacted the City of Racine Department of Public works and succeeded in arranging a postponement of the alley construction project until sometime after the conclusion of Neighborhood Camp on July 24.

After consultation with our neighbors on Carlisle Avenue, we have agreed that it would be impractical to go ahead with plans to participate in National Night Out on August 5 if the alley construction project is underway. Instead, we and our neighbors will try to schedule a block party when the alley construction project is finished.

The alley on the east side of Emmaus is scheduled for construction work beginning this Monday. The alley is projected to be closed to traffic for a minimum of three weeks. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Community Meal: Hot Dogs!

July 2, 2014

mealsD05The next date for St. Andrew and Emmaus to serve St. Patrick’s Community Meal is Thursday, August 7. For the summer months, the menu is hot dogs, buns, salads (pasta salad, macaroni salad, or tossed salad with bottle of dressing), and potato chips.

We were very short several items at the June meal. In August, we expect to need 200 hot dogs and buns, eight salads, and 15 bags of chips.

A sign-up sheet is in the Emmaus narthex. You may sign up for any of the items and deliver them to where you have in the past.
