**Volunteers Needed in YOUTH MINISTRY** - Please consider volunteering with our Youth Ministry! We need and want adults who have a heart for young people to consider being teachers and leaders. Teachers do not have to have experience teaching and lesson plans are provided with everything that you need. And the most important thing that leaders bring is their caring presence. If you're interested, please contact Clayton by email or by calling him at 919.498.5671.
It's Hispanic and Latinx Heritage Month! From September 15 to October 15, the United States honors the cultures and contributions of Hispanic and Latinx Americans.

Mexico and Chile then celebrate their Independence Days on September 16 and September 18, respectively. Emmanuel's Children's Choir has been working to recognize and understand the importance of this month in our country and will be singing a bilingual anthem based on a traditional Spanish song "Quiero Guardar mi Corazón".
