IN-PERSON,  SUNDAY WORSHIP ON September 25, 2022

Sunday, Worship Service @ 10 am: Sixteenth Sunday after Pentecost: Worship will be held in-person in the sanctuary.  A live broadcast will be available on our FACEBOOK page (Emmanuel Friedens Church) at 10 am. Or watch and listen later on the church's website. Scriptures: Amos 6:1a,4-7, Psalm 146,         I Timothy 6:6-19, and Luke 16:19-31:  Sermon, "Godly contentment or Greedy Discontentment".  Rev. Kennedy  will lead worship and preach.   

Adult Sunday Class continues through October 30 (following the worship service-in person) (*Textbook: When Jesus Came to Harvard, Harvey Cox)

We will attempt to answer one basic question in the course: What would it mean for EFC to attempt to implement the teachings of Jesus in the Gospels?

Format: Class discussion. Each participant will have the opportunity to express his or her understanding of the words of Jesus. We will work together to discern what the church is supposed to do with what Jesus says and teaches.  Facilitator: Rev. Rod Kennedy   *Textbook is optional for the class. If you would like to purchase a copy, it is available on

Children-Youth Sunday Classes: Pending information regarding children-youth Sunday Classes.     Our Babyfold is opened during the worship hour.
