One Worship Service at 10:45 AM - Updated Time 

All of the elders would like to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! We trust that you had a wonderful holiday with friends and family and that you have high hopes for the New Year!

During this season of transition in Emmanuel, our decision to have one worship service was made with intent to bring people together and to lessen the burden of our Sunday morning volunteers. Instead, it seems that we miscalculated the effect of asking people to attend a worship service at 9am in the morning. Many of our seniors and some of our families with young children will have great difficulty attending a 9am service. So after more prayer and deliberation, we have decided to swap the order of the CE hour and the worship hour.

Starting on January 7th, we will simply drop the 8am service and will hold our CE hour at the normal 9:30am time and our regular worship service at 10:45am. It is also our intent to hold a short fellowship time before the CE hour at 9:15am as has been our practice.

Although this will also be an inconvenience for some, it seems that it will cause less of a disruption than our original plan. Please continue to pray for unity and understanding in the church body.

No matter how we order services or set times, by going to one service we are reducing options and therefore causing some disruption and inconvenience. We hope and pray that we can show grace to each other as we work through this process. May the glory of Christ be found in each of us as we work together seeking the Lord’s plan for His church in Norfolk. (Ephesians 5:19-21 )
