Pie Pan Missing from Church Dinner yet – a 9" deep dish pie pan is still missing from the church dinner. If you took home a cherry pie, please check your dishes and return this pie pan if it is in your possession. Thanks!

Donations Requested – We are in the process of mailing about 25 college students $10.00 gift cards for a snack/break during studies for their finals week. If you are willing to help with a donation, please give to Donna Kahny or bring to the church office.

A Hymn Sing will be held before each Wednesday night Advent Worship service at 6:45!

Dear Friends at Immanuel,

We are so sorry we could not be there in Osmond last weekend when you held the fundraiser for our benefit, we would have loved to see you all and get to visit with you again. However, Tim's doctor visit the next day was a celebration, as the doctor finally released Tim from the torture of his back-brace. (Tim now has a new sympathy for the Victorian ladies who had to wear those whale-bone corsets.)

We really cannot adequately express the thanks and gratitude we have for everyone who worked so hard putting everything together and all of you who donated for our benefit. We are overwhelmed by your generosity and humbled by your care for us. We are so grateful that God has made you part of our lives and we always treasure the time when we are with you in person. You are such a rich blessing to us and we only pray that someday we may be a blessing to you.


Rev. Tim, Lisa, Aaron and Andrew Beckendorf


THANK YOU! We would like to thank you for all your concern, prayers, and correspondence to our family during these last 6 months. It has been a journey of ups and downs but we have faith the Lord will continue to put his healing hand on Maddox and Merrick. Matt, Megan, Merrick and Maddox are all in Ohio now until Maddox can come home. Maddox is at Nationwide Children's Hospital as it is one of the nation's best Infant Pulmonary Hospitals. Matt, Megan and Merrick are at the Ronald McDonald House across the street from the hospital. Their address is:

Ronald McDonald House

Attn: Matt & Megan Kalin

711 E. Livingston Ave.

Columbus, OH 43205

They have appreciated all the letters they have received to this point from you and we are truly blessed to have such a wonderful congregation for support. Please continue to pray for Maddox and Merrick as we continue this journey with the Lord's help and thank you again.

Steve, Tina and family
