Meet the Candidates for the 2019 Vestry!

Immanuel is one of the congregations of ALIVE! (ALexandrians InVolved Ecumenically!) scheduled in January to replenish our community's food closet. Food requests have increased, and it takes a lot of food to fill bags with a three day supply for a family. Especially needed are non perishable, unopened and not out of date medium sized packages of food. Also, money donations are helpful because they allow ALIVE! to buy eggs, meat, cheese, and produce for the Capital Area Food Bank. Please leave your donations in the narthex at Zabriskie or Immanuel Chapel. If you prefer to make a monetary donation, please make out a check to ALIVE! and give to Lisa Clausen, leave in the church office, or mail to the ALIVE! office at 2723 King Street, Alexandria VA 22302.
About 60 of Immanuel’s enthusiastic Seniors gathered for Ceilidh ("kay-lee”); a Scottish-themed Advent celebration on Sunday December 9th at the Parish Hall. (Click here to see a slideshow of images from the event).
Reverend Alexander kicked off the celebration with a blessing and prayer, followed by harp, bagpipe, piano and voices lifted in song. Combined with delectable shortbreads, salmon, cookies, and scones…as well as several full kilts, many hats and other plaids...it was quite a festive affair!
Many thanks to Rick Glassco and Jeannie Cummins for their instrumental musical virtuosity; to Doug Henry and Doug John for their well-appreciated “wee drams”; to Gretchen Thompson and Jackie Phillips for their tasty home-made scones; to Dave Lambert and Stuart Dahlinger for furniture set up; to Lisa Clausen and Jeannie Cummins for food prep and serving; to those who gave monetary donations; and to all who helped clean up.

Weekly Bible Study Opportunity
The Thursday morning Bible Study Group from Church of the Resurrection cordially invite all parishioners and neighbors of Immanuel to join them for weekly Bible Study each Thursday, in Immanuel's Fairchild Room (next to the Zabriskie Parish Hall), beginning at 8:00 a.m.
We find them on street corners, at traffic intersections, in metro stations and various other locations. They are the men and women who rely on the kindness of strangers to help them simply make it another day. Immanuel's EYC (Episcopal Youth Community) has embarked on a project to promote the dignity of the homeless, and you can help! READ MORE
