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

OUR READER for this morning is Paul Koehler and next Sunday our reader will be LYF member, Caden Wingert. Helping with communion this morning are Larry Krohn and Mike Johnson.

CANDLELIGHTERS for this morning are Zachary Huwaldt and Connor Gutz. Next Sunday they will be Grayson Schultze and Connor von Rentzell.

SUNDAY SCHOOL CLASSES for the fall quarter officially begin today. Classes are split as follows:

Pre-K–K: taught by Tiffany Gansebom, Christy Koehler & Lacy Stelling

Grades 1-2: taught by Cory Hille, Ryan Gutz & Phil Gutz

Grades 3-5: taught by Amanda Koehler & Jennifer Wiseley

Grades 6-8: taught by Kristie Schultze

Thank you to those who have volunteered to teach! If anyone else is interested in teaching or being a sub, please contact Lacy Stelling.

THE FAREWELL POTLUCK DINNER will be held today for Pastor and Vickie after Bible Classes and Sunday School. Please come and wish Pastor Emery and Vickie well at his call to Grace Lutheran in Fairbury. They will be packing and leaving after next Sunday’s worship service.

THE “CARD PARTY” celebrates its 2nd anniversary during the month of September. Last year 592 birthday cards (20 more than last year) and 153 anniversary cards (the same as last year) were written. With the added postal expense of mailing most of the cards due to COVID, we are very grateful to all who are giving cards for ‘repurposing’! We welcome anyone interested in joining our outreach ministry to join us the third Tuesday of every month at 1:00 for an afternoon of fellowship and card writing at the church.

THANK YOU to the members who helped mow the cemetery this past week. Your help is appreciated!

HELP WANTED: Looking for a janitor for the educational wing of the church. For more information, please contact one of the trustees: Jason vR, Justin K, Randy P, Brody F or Jordan K.

THERE WILL BE a new member reception on Sunday, September 27th after the worship service, to honor all the new members of Immanuel. Cake and coffee will be served. Please plan to stay and welcome them.

PASTOR AND VICKIE would appreciate some help cleaning the parsonage after the movers are done. (this will be around the 30th of this month) This will be helpful for Pastor Lilienkamp who is planning to use the house when he is here working. If you would be willing to help, please let Pastor or Vickie know as soon as possible. Thank you!

FURNITURE NEEDED – Pastor Lilienkamp from Wayne will be our vacancy pastor and will start formally on October 4th. With the distance, he will be using the parsonage a couple nights a week. He is in need of some furniture to make this happen. Still looking for 2 lazy-boys or similar. If you have any and would be willing to share, please contact an elder. Thank you.

CEMETERY UPDATE: The trees have been planted. The tree committee would like to thank Rich Lind and Dave Blunck for helping plant the trees. Also, the pad for the directory has been poured and the Directory Committee would like to thank Jim Pfanstiel for helping pour concrete and von Rentzell Farms for donating the concrete. The directory has been picked up and paid for, which will be installed soon.

ADDITIONAL DONATIONS NEEDED: The cemetery directory committee is asking for more donations so that the shelter for the cemetery directory can be finished. Approximately $5,500 is still needed. Your donations can be put in the offering and we ask that you please note on your check and envelope that is what your donation is for.

WHAT ABOUT BOOKS have been revised and are available for you. These books are easy to read and explain what Lutherans believe and teach about topics important for today. They are available near the bulletin boxes.
