Dear Beloved God,

For the duration of the summer, the weekly e-News will be on semi-hiatus.

The prayer list will be updated weekly.  If you wish to keep up with the weekly lectionary, please visit https://lectionary.library.vanderbilt.edu//.  For the most part, Emmaus follows the suggestions for the alternate first reading and psalm.

You can always find current and past sermons on the Webpage “May I Have a Word”.

Thank you to everyone who lent a hand to make our participation in Frederick Pride a success!  And the weather couldn’t have been more beautiful.  A fun time was had by all!

Grace and Peace, 

Mother Linda 
The Reverend Linda S. Harrison
pastor, Emmaus Faith Community

Anointing of the sick is offered the second Sunday of each month.  You may also request anointing of the sick at other times.
Community potluck dinner is every third Sunday of the month after mass.  You are ALWAYS invited to potluck, whether you can make it to mass or not.  Food and fellowship are always a holy thing.
