THE SUNDAY SCHOOL TEACHER SIGN-UP SHEET FOR THE NEXT QUARTER is in the back of the church.  Why should I sign up to teach?  Here are just a few reasons.

  1. Children are a blessing from God and they matter to Him
  2. Taking the time to love and teach the children will influence them in the future, when they become parents and leaders.
  3. Most people will come to Christ when they are young.  These are the greatest years of opportunity to open them to the Gospel.
  4. Teaching is an act of service that is done quietly, the rewards will come in God’s own time.

 

If you love God and His children, then there are many different ways for you to help.  Look within yourselves and let’s keep the YOUth in God’s heart.

MAKE PLANS TO ATTEND LENTEN SERVICES BEGINNING THIS WEEK ON ASH WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 13, 2013

 From the day of His baptism where the Scripture in St. Luke’s Gospel says Jesus was praying, remaining in constant fellowship with His Father was a keynote of our Lord’s ministry.  It’s a difficult concept to embrace for human beings.  Jesus Christ was, according to our confessions, true God, the Second Person of the Holy Trinity.  Jesus was with God and was God in the beginning and at the same time He was true man, always subservient to the Father’s will and purpose.  Perhaps the most important lesson God’s people could learn today is the Lord’s constant devotion to prayer.  Seeking the strength of His Father to fulfill the purpose of His coming among men was uppermost in His example.

 With our fast-paced lives, nobody has to tell us that our prayer lives fall short, and woefully short of the Lord’s example.  Our Lenten journey will help us key in on how and when our Lord spent time in fervent prayer as he prepared to suffer and die for our sins.  May this time and the Lord’s example help us to redouble our efforts to communicate with our God in prayer.

Ash Wednesday, Feb. 13         “Courage to Submit”     Luke 22:39-46

Midweek 2, Feb. 20                 “Alone in a Crowd”      Luke 5:12-16

Midweek 3, Feb. 27                 “Awake at Night”         Luke 6:12-16

Midweek 4, March 6                “The Journey Ahead”    Luke 9:18-24

Midweek 5, March 13      “The Right Way to Pray”      Luke 11:1-4

Midweek 6, Mar. 20        “(Un) finished Business”   Luke 23:34, 46

THE SUNDAY SCHOOL TEACHER SIGN-UP SHEET FOR THE NEXT QUARTER is in the back of the church.  Why should I sign up to teach?  Here are just a few reasons.

  1. Children are a blessing from God and they matter to Him
  2. Taking the time to love and teach the children will influence them in the future, when they become parents and leaders.
  3. Most people will come to Christ when they are young.  These are the greatest years of opportunity to open them to the Gospel.
  4. Teaching is an act of service that is done quietly, the rewards will come in God’s own time.

 

If you love God and His children, then there are many different ways for you to help.  Look within yourselves and let’s keep the YOUth in God’s heart.

THE FOLLOWING LETTER HAS BEEN RECEIVED FROM REV. TIM AND LISA BECKENDORF:

 

Dear Friends at Immanuel,

            Thank you very much for your continued gifts to Lutheran Bible Translators for our ministry among the Khwe.  We certainly appreciate you thinking of us and supporting the work of Bible translation.

            We are all doing well and are enjoying a few days off for the New Year’s holidays before we start back up with work again.

            Work will be nothing too new; some corrections need to be made on the sections of Genesis which were recently consultant checked, and Moses will continue drafting parts of 2 Samuel while Splash works in the Gospels on the parables of Jesus.

            At the same time we are starting to plan for our furlough which is coming up this summer (how time flies!)  We have a lot of travel plans to make since we want to visit as many churches and supporters as possible.  Of course, visiting you there in Osmond will be the high point of our trip.

            Thank you again for supporting us and our ministry.

            God Bless,  Rev. Tim and Lisa

                                    Aaron and Andrew

                                      Beckendorf  

                                           

ALL SECRETARYS AND TREASURERS OF IMMANUEL’S ORGANIZATIONS are asked to please turn their reports for the “Annual Report” in to Denise as soon as possible.  If you would like to see a copy of last year’s report, check with Denise in the secretary’s office. Thank You .
