"Thank You!" for visiting our website!

 

4/4 Note:

For members who are interested, I will host an online Bible Study tomorrow morning (4/5) at 10:00am.
This will be done using Zoom.  If you want to particiapte, please email me here at church immev@centurytel.net to indicate your desire to join in.  I will send out Zoom event invitations later today to everyone who emails me.  The Zoom invitation includes a link for the event which people click on and then follow the simple instructions to join.  (I think you may have to click "Run" on your computer before it gets you to the Zoom event page.)  Again it will start at 10:00am.
Please also share this information with anyone who doesn't regularly check our website!
For this first time, I'd like to have just our members join - so that if it is glitchy, I know we're a very forgiving group!  With Christian Love, Pastor Steve


4/3 Note:

A video for Palm Sunday worship has been uploaded on our facebook page.
Here's the link: 
https://www.facebook.com/ImmanuelEvLutheranChurch/
You have to scroll down some.  If you're watching on a phone, turn it to horizontal for it to go full screen.  If you watch it on a computer, you will have expanded screen and full screen options on the bottom of the video. The previous video reached many more people than expected.
Thank you for sharing it with your friends!

 

3/25 Note:

1 - After prayerfully considering the pros and cons of keeping our Grow With Us Child Center open, it was decided to keep it open for as long as we can.  We treasure our current staff and want to keep them.  After it was learned that none of them would be eligible for unemployment payments
because of our not-for-profit status, staying open is the right decision.  Please share the news
that we are still caring for children; especially children of parents in an essential worker group!
2 - Thank you for your financial faithfulness!!  In order for us to stay current with our expenses,
we need to express our faith in generous offerings.  This is especially true as some among us are themselves in stressful financial situations.  Remember that you can donate online through the
Donate Online link on the bottom of this page.  Thanks again everyone!
4 - On many of these ever-changing days, this is truly easier said than done, but let's stay strong in our faith, confident in our God, and joyful in the blessings of His grace through Jesus!

3/17 Note About Our Response To The Coronavirus:

Dear Sisters & Brother In Our Immanuel Family & Our Friends,
With an abundance of loving concern for our members and after a great deal of prayer,
guidance from our WELS national leadership and our Northern WI District leaders,
and conversations with area WELS pastors, here are the latest decisions:
1 - All gatherings of any kind at Immanuel Lutheran,
including worship and Sunday School, are cancelled until further notice.
 

2 - There will not be any confirmation classes until further notice. (Confirmation is postponed.)
3 - Please mail your offerings to church (P.O.Box 219), offer them anytime during the week
by putting them in the offering basket in the chapel, or give your offerings using our website
(it's PayPal based).  We sincerely need the continuing support of our Christian family;
even though many of us may be in difficult financial times ourselves.
6 - Grow With Us Child Center will remain open as WI DHS has encouraged.
(At this time, it is exempt from current CDC guidelines and the WI ban.)
......................................................................................................................
Communication within our congregational leadership and among WELS pastors
is very active in praying for God's guidance, discussing options, and seeking mutual wisdom.
Please keep leaders at all levels, medical caregivers, and all affected in your prayers!
Your Shepherd Under Christ, Pastor Steve
