EAT TOGETHER

Here is Immanuel’s challenge for the season of Lent…  EAT with us!  In the five weeks from Feb 18 we challenge you to eat with someone each week.  Do it at work.  Invite those who are lonely, invite your neighbours over, join an Immanuel Life Group to eat.  Break isolation barriers. Politely invite yourself over to someone’s place?  Follow the “G.R.A.C.E.” pattern!

DISCUSS THE WEEK’S BIBLE STORY

Each week we’ll put a discussion guide up on our website and in our foyer.  If you want to go deeper you could use it to have a discussion with a group, with some family, or at Immanuel on Wednesday mornings at 10.00am.  There will only be five of these discussion guides as the sixth week takes us into Easter.

THE BIGGEST LUNCH IMMANUEL EVER HAD!

Sunday March 25 is our huge Palm Sunday community lunch.  Invite a friend.  Bring food!  Let’s make it the biggest community meal Immanuel has ever held.  Worship is at 7.30am & 9.30am.  Lunch at 11.00am.  See you there.

Gather

invite someone, make a stranger a friend, break isolation.

Relate

turn off the TV, sit together, face each other, listen.

Accept

let the table be a place of acceptance and not judgement.

Consecrate

thank God, don’t be ashamed to acknowledge the Giver.

Eat

shared meals grow trust, unite enemies, and define us.
