"Faith That Feeds"
We believe that faith should feed and nurture our spirits.
We believe also that faith should lead us to feed people
in the many different ways they hunger,
both physically and spiritually.

Hybrid Sunday Worship

The Sixth Sunday After Pentecost

June 30, 2024

A woman finds healing by touching Jesus’ cloak, and a girl is restored to life when he takes her by the hand. In both cases a boundary is crossed: in Jesus’ time the hemorrhaging woman was considered ritually unclean, polluting others by her touch, and anyone who touched a corpse also became unclean. In Mark’s gospel Jesus breaks down barriers, from his first meal at a tax collector’s house to his last breath on the cross as the temple curtain is torn in two. We dare to touch Jesus in our “uncleanness” and to live as a community that defines no one as an outsider.

Coffee Hour Special Guest

Van Gilmer, Music Director at The Bahá'í House of Worship

This Sunday, June 30, 2024, After Worship (11:45 am), Fellowship Hall

Please join us this Sunday for a Special Coffee Hour featuring Guest Speaker Van Gilmer. Mr. Gilmer is the Music Director at the Baha'i House of Worship, and has a full resume of musical accomplishments and social justice activism.

Some Immanuel members may recall that he was one of the speakers on the Our Pilgrimage to Montgomery panel discussion held via Zoom in June 2021. Mr. Gilmer is considered both an American cultural and activist icon.

About Van Gilmer & Social Justice

Van Gilmer was among the first persons to be involved in the sit-ins at the Woolworth lunch counter in Greensboro NC in the 60’s. The movement spread throughout the nation and ultimately resulted in the opening of establishments throughout the country as old Jim Crow laws were finally removed.

It also began his lifelong involvement in working for Equal Justice for all people. Though his chosen profession was as an Architect for the United States Navy Dept., he also served many years as an Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) Officer. After his first retirement, he accepted a position as Music Director at the Bahá’í House of Worship for the North American Continent. Van continues to be involved in Civil Rights and Racial Justice movements, with his current involvement as a member of Race Awareness in the North Shore (RAIN), Healing Everyday Racism in our Schools (HEROS) and as a board member of Together Is Better (TiBA).

--Audrey Moy,

Chair, Justice & Equity Ministry

*Note: The presentation originally scheduled for this Sunday, Ms. Laurice Bell, Executive Director of the Shorefront Legacy Center, is being postponed until Sunday, August 4th. Watch for reminders in July.
