Stewardship Moment

Published by JaniceH under Announcements

Jen Banos shares her journey with us for the Stewardship Campaign:

Each of us has the opportunity again this fall to renew our commitment to one another and the mission of Emmanuel by making a financial commitment. You can make your pledge online through our web site or in person with your pledge card. Your annual pledge is used to support what we do at Emmanuel and beyond it’s doors. Our yearly budget is driven by the generosity of your pledges. If you have pledged in the past and would like to again, be sure to submit a new pledge for this year.

Welcome to The Reverend Richard Shippee

Published by JaniceH under Announcements

The Rev Richard Shippee

We are very pleased to tell you that the Rev. Richard Shippee has joined us in the role of Interim Associate on a part-time basis.  Richard+ is a retired priest and Jungian psycho-therapist who last served as Rector of St. Matthew and Mark in Barrington. He retired two years ago, but now is looking for a way to combine both parish work and his therapy practice. He will be in the office on Thursdays, worship with us most weekends, and preach roughly once every three weeks.  He has a real passion for pastoral care, and so he will be coordinating efforts with our lay leaders and our Deacon Intern, as well as making pastoral calls to our members who would like him to come. He will also serve as our “supply priest” for most weekends when Vicar Joan away. We welcome him to Emmanuel and look forward to getting to know him and having him get to know us.

More from The Reverend Richard Shippee
A reminder that Richard+ will be at Modern Bistro at 10:30 on Thursday, October 9th for “Second Breakfast” to meet with anyone who would like to join him for food and conversation!
