News:  

Adult Sunday School resumes this Sunday with our "Bible Stories For Adults" series.  We will spend the next couple of weeks looking at the fascinating story of Balaam.  Come join us!  

This Sunday, September 19th, the Board of Missions will be putting on their annual Ice Cream Social.  All are welcome to attend.  Special music is being provided by Sandy, Barb and Dorothy.

Youth Confirmation:  Due to Pastor Horne's quarantine, the start-date for the first class has been pushed back to September 15th at 6:00pm.

Men: This Friday and Saturday (9/24-25) we head to Herrington. With a dozen churches and four states represented, we're set for a great retreat. For those who've not come before, there are a couple of things to note:

  1. There are about a dozen beds (maybe more?). Typically we try to ensure that those who need a bed get one. So, if you're not one of those, plan to bring a cot/camping pad, etc. You'll also want a blanket/sleeping bag and a pillow.
  2. Towels are at the house.
  3. Meals are provided, but bring your own drink or something to share.
  4. If you've not yet received a copy of Pr. Wolfmueller's book, A Martyr's Faith in a Faithless World, I have copies. Get one from me or at Trinity.
  5. If you're driving yourself, the address is 475 Trail Road, Herington, KS 67449. Try to get there around 6pm.

Our District Office has made some recommendations about Moving Forward After Covid.  Please consider and share your thoughts on how this guidance relates to us with Immanuel's elected officers.

We are continuing to have our services in-person.  You may want to wear a mask.  You may want to sit in either the balcony or the fellowship hall.  We respect your choices in these matters.

The midweek Bible study resumes with Malachi this week.

The gift from above

Jesus places a little child before His disciples.  "Anyone who receives a little child in my Name receives me and whoever receives me, receives Him who sent me".  Who is it then that receives this child?  What does it mean to receive this child?  We explore these questions this Sunday as we rejoice in the gifts that continue to be ours; gifts that we desire because they come from above.

This Sunday's Readings:

Jeremiah 11:18-20

James 3:13-4:10

Mark 9:30-37
