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 Ross Stelling. Helping with communion next week will be Ed Brummels and Larry Krohn.

CANDLELIGHTERS for this morning are Kaden Polt and Hunter Buchanan. Next Sunday they will be Reese Johns and Zaylah Pfanstiel.

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

THANK YOU to Jaxson Wingert for playing the piano during the offering this morning.

QUILT TYING will be tomorrow at 1:00 p.m. Anyone is welcome to come.

LWML monthly meeting will be this Wednesday at 7:30 p.m. (A week early due to Thanksgiving service.) New members are always welcome!

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 $12,270.81. Our goal is to collect $22,000 so the sign can be read from both directions.

SUNDAY SCHOOL is looking for two small trees (like 3-4’ max), white lights, red ornaments and a red cloth to go on the bottom of one tree for their program on Christmas Eve. If anyone has any of these items that they are willing to let the Sunday School use, please contact Kari Miller at 402-640-6330. Thank You!

PICTURES TAKEN – Deb will continue taking pictures in the fellowship hall of all of our members as they come into church. We will have a wall (or two) with the pictures and name badges for everyone to wear to help Pastor Scott & Sonja get to know us a little better when they arrive. These pictures will also be used in our Church 360 program.

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. About ½ has been raised so far. A basket is set in the back of church as you leave if you would like to make a donation.

BOXES OF CHRISTMAS CARDS have arrived. They are set up on a table in the fellowship hall with prices marked on the back of each box. Please put payments in the can sitting on the table. (checks payable to Ladies Aid) Thank You!

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.

LYF will have practices for the December 15th Advent service on November 28th at 1:00pm, December 5th at 7:00pm and December 12th at 7:00pm.
