Because waiting ‘til Sunday is too long.

“The Lord is gracious and compassionate,

    slow to anger and rich in love.” Psalm 145:8

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


   There are two significant things happening on the Emmanuel Campus in the next several weeks that I want you to know. First, we will be replacing one of the A/C units in the Sanctuary. The unit we are replacing had reached the point where it did not make sense to continue to repair it. We’ll keep the interruption to a minimum and anticipate that it will not impact Sunday worship. 

   Second, our pest control provider, Veritas, has confirmed that we have termites in the Sanctuary. While sometimes these can be spot treated without needing to tent the building, this time we must tent the entire Sanctuary, including the choir room and office. As a result, there will be three days where we will have no access to the building though the schedule is not expected to interfere with Sunday worship. I’ll share the dates for tenting as soon as the contract is signed, locking in the dates. 

   As you can imagine, the cost for these two items is substantial. Thankfully, due to the generosity of many through the years, we have reserves that can cover the expenses this time. We will need to replenish those reserves over time to be prepared for whatever comes in the future.      



Many thanks to David & Carolyn Brown and Gayla Grimes-Harbolt for doing worship this past Sunday during my unplanned absence. I am feeling better and anticipate being with you all again this Sunday. Thank you for thoughts and prayers.

With Love in Christ,

Pastor Kim
