Easter is Coming… He Is Risen! He Is Risen Indeed, Alleluia! | No, it’s not Easter yet, but we need help! The Easter Living Cross has been a part of the Easter celebration at Immanuel for over 40 years. If the Living Cross is to continue, someone needs to step forward and take on this project. If no one volunteers to do this project by mid-February there will not be an Easter Living Cross in 2020. If you are willing to take on the responsibility for this project, please let the church office know. May God bless your day. Ron K

Newsletter Assembly | We will be assembling the February newsletter next week on Thursday, January 30th. Anyone is welcome to come help that morning around 7:30 - 8:00 to the school cafeteria.

Caring for the Care-Giver Presentation | For care-givers, teachers, helpers, etc.. "Being There for Others Without Losing Ourselves" Presented by: Dr. Richelle Hoekstra-Anderson, Clinical Psychologist and Life Coach with Crossroads Renewal, LLC... When we care for others who are suffering, the process of "empathic resonance" means that we feel their distress as our own. In order for us to sustain empathy for others, we must begin with compassion for ourselves. In this engaging presentation, you will learn helpful strategies for taking care of yourself so that you can be at your best when providing care to someone else. Join us for this presentation in the Church Lower Level (Fellowship Hall), Tuesday, January 21st at 6:00pm
