Food, Fun and Fellowship

The Parish Life Team plans the church’s “social” events and makes the arrangements for the food, fellowship and fun that we all frequently enjoy at Emmanuel. The team oversees coffee hours, 5th Sunday Brunches, picnics and special receptions. Some of the behind-the-scenes duties include setting up tables, place settings, arranging flowers and decor, shopping for and preparing entrée’s and beverages, and the clean-up for all of the church’s special events. A lot of time and effort is placed into organizing volunteers, sign-up sheets and meal planning, as well as publicizing our activities. The Parish Life Team’s goal is to strengthen the relationships of current members while welcoming newcomers.
