PARISH PROFILE SURVEY ON-LINE!
The on-line survey, on which you may provide your information as we begin our search for a permanent rector at Emmanuel Church. The link to the survey is https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/EMECProfile The survey should take between 20 and 40 minutes to complete and is designed to give our Search Committee a snapshot of our parish community to rector candidates. Please note: The survey is set up so that NO ONE LOGGING IN CAN BE TRACKED ensuring that all responses will be anonymous. You are strongly encouraged to complete the survey on-line to minimize the amount of time inputting surveys completed in hard copy. If, however, you cannot complete the survey on-line and wish to fill it out by hand, please contact the Parish Office and you will be given a hard copy. The deadline for completing, or turning in your hard copy of the survey, is next Sunday, May 12th.

CALL FOR QUICKER-PICKER-UPPERS!
The "ministry of coffee hour" is important to the EMEC family and visitors and you are invited to participate! Quicker-Picker-Upper teams clean up after the 10:15 fellowship hour. The tasks are not difficult and, once you conquer any qualms about the dishwasher, serving on a team can be quite satisfying! Please consider this ministry and call or email Ruth McCauley at 649-4158 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to volunteer or have questions.
PARKING SPACE REQUEST
When attending Sunday services and other church events, please leave the parking spaces on the SOUTH side of the lot (along the curb where the trees are planted) for those who need to park closer to the building. Any person who would benefit from parking closer to the Great Hall doors is welcome to use these spaces. Thank you very much for your kindness, consideration and cooperation – Your Wardens and Vestry
in the Lady Chapel and the Roberts Chapel may be provided each week by individual donors. Please sign up on the list on the table in the Great Hall and record memorial or thanksgiving designations, if desired.
KEEPING OUR PARISH PRAYER LIST UPDATED
In an effort to keep our parish intercessory prayer list up-to-date with the names of those who continue to need our prayers, we are asking for the assistance of those who have asked to have a name(s) added to the list. Names will be kept on the list for a month and then removed unless a specific request is made to keep the name on the list. Please know that you may contact the Parish Office or speak with the clergy at any time to have a name added to the list.
IF YOU OR A FAMILY MEMBER ARE IN THE HOSPITAL
and wish to receive a visit from the clergy, please remember to contact the Parish Office. In the event that you get the answering machine, please leave the name of the person in hospital and the room number and name of the hospital. Also, please let the office know if you or your family would like a meal provided. In this manner we can ensure that the pastoral needs of all those in our parish are being met. Thank you.
Janet Macomber, Emmanuel’s coordinator of the collection of pop tabs, the "Pull for Access" project, through PACE (Persons Assuming Control of Their Environment) wishes to thank all who have turned in tabs. The mission of PACE is to assist and empower people with disabilities so they can stay independent and part of the community. One hundred percent of the pop tab money is directed to the purchase of items to assist those with disabilities. Please deposit your pop tops in the bucket on the table at the Communications Corner of the Great Hall. Thank you to Janet for coordinating this project and to all of you who support it!
STOCK OUR FOOD PANTRY

The need continues to be great to feed those in our communities who are hungry and we thank everyone who has brought donations to the church on Sundays or stops by with items during the week. Your ministry throughout the year, whether as a shopper or a food deliverer, ensures that those in need have nutritious meals and the necessities of daily life. Please consider picking up an extra item or two when you are at the grocery store and leave them on the counter in the church kitchen. Items in short supply this week are assorted canned vegetables, canned tomatoes, assorted soups, spaghetti, rice, dried beans, cereal, salad dressings, crackers, coffee, jelly, toilet paper, paper towels, dish soap, laundry detergent, shampoo, men's and women's deodorant, toothbrushes/toothpaste. Our delivery volunteer for the weekend of May 10th is Page Parkhill.
