WE WELCOME EVERYONE who has worshipped with us this morning, especially our guests. We hope you will be able to worship with us again soon.

THE CANDLELIGHTERS for next Sunday will be Graysen Schultze and Connor von Rentzell.

OUR READER for this morning is Zachary Huwaldt and next Sunday our reader will be Mike Johnson. Helping with communion next Sunday will be Dwight Kahny and Paul Koehler.

JOIN US AT ADULT BIBLE CLASS as we do a study that examines our worship, liturgy and provides insight on why we worship the way we do as LC-MS Lutherans.

THRIVENT MEMBERS: The church office is looking for members of Immanuel who are also Thrivent Members. Part of the reason is that the cemetery directory committee is looking for Thrivent members who would be willing to apply for Thrivent funds to help with the cost of the directory.

Members of this committee will be in the back of church if you have any questions or comments you would like to pass on to them.
