“I thank my God always when I remember you in my prayers.” Philemon vs. 4. We would like to thank our friends at Immanuel for all the cards, visits and prayers for Norma as she celebrated her 100th Birthday. Your kindness and friendship made her special day even more special! Patti, the flowers were stunning, and we had so many compliments on them. We appreciate you all so much! Norma Katt and Family
Our second annual Sunday School Kickoff held on September 8, 2019 was a big success! Nine family were represented everyone enjoyed a brunch of egg casseroles, pigs in a blanket, pastry, doughnut holes, fresh fruit, and drinks, which were furnished by the Sunday school staff. A special thank you to Rebecca and Miles Wulf for arriving at 7:30 a.m. to help. After the brunch, announcements were made, new families were welcomed, and the Sunday school teachers, helpers, and substitute teachers were introduced. To end the morning a version of a “cake walk” was enjoyed by all families. The Sunday school offerings for the 2019-2020 school year will be World Vision.
At the start of the worship service Bibles were presented to the Kindergarten and third grade students. These students were K-Ivy Panning and Jentry Warner. T-Jhett Warner. Ramsay Stanton and Oliver Stanton were unable to attend. Our children are a very valuable part of our congregation. The spiritual part of their lives should a top priority. Please pray for them as well as their parents.
Carolyn Hagerbaumer, Sunday School Superintendent
A big thank you for those who attended guest day to hear Hollie Siebler speak on being a Christian and scientist. She commented on her years at Immanuel school and living in a Christian community. She graduated from Logan View and went on to receive her PhD in cancer research. She spoke of feeling so alone as a Christian in an environment of secular scientists. She finally realized that God’s plan for her was to be at this place and time to be bold in her Christian beliefs. Thanks also to Shelli and Brooke for their musical selections. God blessed us with a cool September day and the beauty of Patti’s flowers.

HAPPY HEARTS OF IMMANUEL PRESCHOOL: The first week of preschool went smoothly. The 10 four-year olds and the 7 three-year olds learned a lot this week. Starting with preschool expectations, working on social skills and of course, academics. The Preschool prayer and pledge start the learning day. Their daily expectations include free play, carpet, line/hall, bathroom and gym. There is learning in every minute of their morning. The book this week was How Do Dinosaurs Go to School? Students learning the difference between good and poor choices. Students also learned different ways to show kindness. A very practical lesson this week was the difference between a dab of glue and a glob of glue while practicing different ways to use their glue. Don’t forget the potluck starts at 5:00 p.m. today. A salad or dessert to share would be wonderful. Everything else will be provided.

Paul confesses to some serious wickedness: “I was a blasphemer, persecutor, and insolent opponent” (1 Timothy 1:13). Abortion also belongs to this list of severe sins. Only His own even greater mercy compelled Christ Jesus to come into the world, bringing precisely the grace, love, patience, and eternal life that our evil deeds attempted but failed to obtain for us. He saves nobody but sinners and forgives even the foremost violence against life (1 Timothy 1:15).
