These pictures will also be used in our Church 360 program.

THANK YOU to everyone who participated in the Trunk or Treat last Sunday afternoon. We had 7 vehicles and about 50 children came through.

NO THURSDAY MORNING BIBLE CLASS this week due to Veteran’s Day program that morning.

PARENTS OF COLLEGE STUDENTS please drop off current addresses and contact information of your child(ren) to Deb in the church office. Thank You!

COLLEGE STUDENT GIFT CARDS We are once again at the time of year when college students (about 30 students this year) will be studying for semester finals and our church family sends them a gift card to let them know we are thinking about them and give them some support. A basket is set in the back of church as you leave if you would like to make a donation.

CHOIR will be held again next Sunday! Hoping for more members to join each week! Open to all adults and high school students! Practice at 8:30, then sing at opening of church service.

PLANS FOR THE SUNDAY SCHOOL CHRISTMAS PROGRAM have begun. Parents of Sunday School children are asked to please let Kari Miller know by TODAY whether to include your child as a participant in this years’ service. Kari may be reached at 402-640-6330.

CHURCH STEEPLE: The trustees are considering removing the steeple on top of the church before the church gets new shingles in the spring. Comments/ideas, whether positive or negative may be expressed to any member of the Board of Trustees – Justin Koehler, Randy Pfanstiel, Brody Friedrich, Jordan Koehler and Wayne Koehler.

WE ARE CURRENTLY RAISING FUNDS to replace the sign on the NE corner of the church with a digital sign. Donations may be put in the offering plate (clearly marked for the digital sign) or dropped off at the church office. Total collected so far is $9,434.50. Our goal is to collect $22,000.00 so the sign can be read from both directions.

REV. SCOTT KIRCHOFF has accepted the call to be our next pastor. Plans are Installation here at Immanuel on December 11th at 2:00 PM and begin leading us in worship on December 12th!
