A phrase I have often heard lately is people wanting ‘to speak my truth.’ When I hear this I understand everyone has a unique perspective on their side of the story, how we all uniquely interpret events and circumstances, but it this actually ‘the Truth?’ As followers of Jesus we have a different, higher, standard of what constitutes truth. This does not mean all followers of Jesus everywhere agree on everything. We don’t. And disagreement is okay. We agree on the essentials and this is more of the work of the Holy Spirit. Jesus says to us in John 16.5-15 that it is to our advantage for Him to ascend to the Father and the Spirit will guide us deeper into all Truth. We will unpack this some more as we look at “One Spirit: Truth” on Sunday. Hope to see you there!

Upcoming Events
Car Rally Saturday October 17th
Family Night has been cancelled due to Covid, so the ECW ladies have planned a great family event that they hope you will all sign up for. Fill the car with your spouse, your kids, your grandkids, or anyone in your Covid bubble and come out for the Car Rally. We promise you a fun time, enjoying local scenery while testing your team work and observation skills, as you learn fun facts about Emmanuel and the local area. The route and stops have something of interest for all ages. There are snacks for everyone and some nice prizes for the three top teams. Admission fee is by donation. We urge you to consider what you normally spend at family night and give generously. The route will take about 2 hours. Cars will leave at ten minute intervals between 11:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m.
