FROM OUR VICAR
Dear friends in Christ,
Greetings to you all in the loving name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.!!!!
As we are all aware, we are gradually approaching the last days of 2020. Let’s thankfully remember God’s grace that guided us through the difficult days of 2020.Though I am writing this message in October, I know that it will reach your hands at the threshold of the month of November. The month of November is ecclesiastically very much important. Down through the centuries, it is customary for the Christian Church to reminisce all the ‘Martyrs of the church’ who had sacrificed their life on the altar of Christian Faith on 1st November and we observe the day as “All Saints Day”. It is on 2nd November that is “All Soul’s Day”, that we commemorate all our ancestors who have entered in to eternal rest. The first Sunday of November is being observed as “World Sunday School Day” by the protestant churches all over the world. As far as our church is concerned, first Sunday of November is very much important because, every year, it is on this day that we celebrate our ‘Harvest Festival and Annual Thanksgiving Service’. In short the month of November, is a time of fasts and feasts for Christians in general, and for Immanuel Church in particular. In every Festival of the church, whether it is Harvest festival or any other festival, we must have three dimensional activities.
