THE WEDNESDAY WORD… for October 14, 2020         
Because waiting ‘til Sunday is too long

“May your unfailing love come to me, Lord,

    your salvation, according to your promise.” Psalm 119:41

Welcome to THE WEDNESDAY WORD, a weekly communication
of Emmanuel United Methodist.



This Sunday we observe All Saints’ Sunday in addition to Holy Communion. We will remember those of our Emmanuel family who have gone on to life eternal in the past year. I pray you will continue to keep their families in your prayers as we head into the holiday season. 



Thank you to the 6 other persons who joined me at the meeting for Manatee Justice Ministry last Thursday. I wish you all had been there to hear the inspiring message about the difference a justice ministry can make in a community. There will be another opportunity soon.



It may be 58 days until Christmas but it’s only 34 days until our Advent Bible Study begins! Join me at one of the two times below for Adam Hamilton’s new study Incarnation: Rediscovering the Significance of Christmas. We will meet for four weeks for each day/time:

  • Tuesdays at 6:30 p.m. online with Zoom – Dec. 1, 8, 15 and 22

  • Wednesdays at 2:30 p.m. in McCay Hall wearing masks and socially distanced: Dec. 2, 9, 16, and 23


To sign-up let Joy know at secretary.eumc@gmail.com or call the Church Office at 941-792-3497.



Emmanuel is a Polling Place only on voting day, November 3, 2020. If you have not voted by then, drop by to vote here at Emmanuel so that your voice will be heard this election.
