Yard Sale - Canceled


Having consulted with the early bird leads here at church this morning, we will cancel the yard sale. Next week begins our VBS, so that is not a “rain date” option.

We very much appreciate your interest and support of this event.  We will look to the church calendar and discuss maybe another date later in the summer, or early fall.

Also, if you have children, grandchildren, or great-grandchildren, our VBS starts next Sunday.  VBS runs from July 12-17, 6 to 8:30 PM each night.  We have an adult VBS class as well, so you are most welcome to attend, kids or not!

To learn more about “Journey Off The Map” VBS or to register go to:

Hope you have a wonderful holiday weekend, and great summer.

Community Yard Sale - Update

Yard Sale One Week Rain Delay

New Date: Saturday July 4th.

This Saturday we have a strong forecast of all-day rain.  As such, we will postpone the Yard Sale until next Saturday.  Same date and time, just now on July Forth.  

There may be a sliver lining of opportunity in this storm. Opportunity for yard sales are morning to noon types of events, which leaves plenty of time for a cookout in the afternoon.  Also, the Forth is a great day to meet people and socialize. 

What a good way to meet new people and make new friends! Hope you can attend, there is now more time to register to be part of the Forth of July Fun!

EBC 2015 Community Easter Egg Hunt

Thank You EBC Family and Friends

Many thanks to all Emmanuel Baptist Church family and friends for your support and work in hosting the 2015 Community Easter Egg Hunt.  The weather today was a bit cool, but the sky was clear and had a great turnout.  We counted 131 total people in attendance today.  Great Work!

The Egg Hunt opened with games for the children on the grounds.  We then went indoors for the inside activities.  In the sanctuary we watched an Easter video, saw the 2015 Vacation Bible School promotional trailer, and were treated to a VBS skit.  The raffle and jelly bean count winners were awarded and we practiced one of the VBS Worship Rally sing-alongs.

Not to be overlook, we then went back outside for the Egg Hunt.  The kids cleared the field of all of the pastel plastic eggs filled with candy.  Two kids from each age group won chocolate bunnies and two others won tote bags filled with prizes.

Again, great work by all of the EBC Family in hosting a fun and exciting day for families in our community.

Please check out the photos of today fun here.
