Things are Happening at Emanuel in Woodhaven, NY


The good folks over at Emanuel have passed along news of some upcoming events you should be aware:

First, Emanuel will open its doors for quiet personal prayer and meditation at 8:30 on the morning of Sunday, September 11. There will be a special commemorative worship service at 10:00. All are welcome. Emanuel is located on Woodhaven Blvd and 91st Avenue.

Next, Emanuel will be holding their Fall Dinner & Show on Saturday, September 24th at 5:30 PM.  The Dinner Menu (prepared by the famous and talented Chef Eric) will consist of Chicken Parmigiana with Spaghetti, a Salad with your choice of dressing, Italian Bread, Dessert, Coffee, Tea, & Iced Tea.  We’ve been to this dinner before and it’s a treat.  There will also be entertainment, provided by Charles Locasto and his lovely back up singers.  The Theme of this dinner is “Love Is In The Air” — try to think of all the songs you know that have the word “Love” in the title — see if Charles includes them in his repertoire!  Tickets are only $15 for Adults, $7.50 for Children 12 and under.

To reserve seats, call Emanuel on Tuesday or Wednesday between 10 AM and 2 PM — 718-849-1153 – ask for Pam!

Please also save the date for Emanuel’s Annual Church Fair, November 12th from 10 AM to 8 PM.  There will be a large number of vendors with a variety of items for sale, a Granny’s Attic, a Book-Nook, and a Bakery with many home-baked items to be enjoyed.  And, per custom, there will be Emanuel’s GIANT AUCTION TABLE.  This year, you can get bagels and coffee and tea in the morning — and hot dogs and other hot and cold snacks in the afternoon — it’s a great way to spend the day.

And finally, Emanuel will once again hold a “Bless The Pets” ceremony on their front steps — we’ve been to the last two ceremonies

Bring your furry friends — it’s a fun morning and you’ll get to meet fellow pet lovers.  And even if you don’t have a pet, come down and see all the cute little fuzzies — the date still to be announced.  Either call Emanuel or watch this space!
