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. He would like a bed (probably queen size); 2 lazy-boys or similar; a table and chairs. If you have any of these items and would be willing to share, please contact an elder. Thank you.

PASTOR AND VICKIE would appreciate some help cleaning the parsonage after the movers are done. 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!

Two out of every three people do not know Jesus as their Savior. Lutheran Women in Mission is reaching out to a world in need of the Gospel through mission grants. You have the opportunity to help reach others with the saving Word of Jesus. This year, LWML is celebrating Giving Tuesday on September 15.

A SPECIAL OFFERING FOR CAMP LUTHER! Due to the Coronavirus, Camp Luther had to curtail many of its functions for 2020. This has put a strain on their day-to-day finances. Immanuel is hosting a special offering during the month of September to send to Camp Luther to help their situation. A basket will be set up at the back of the church all of September. Please prayerfully consider a special gift to Camp Luther. God’s Blessings to you all.

ADDITIONAL DONTIONS NEEDED: The cemetery directory committee is asking for more donations so that the shelter for the cemetery directory can be finished. Approximately $6,000 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.
