A window should pop up that will ask you what group you would like to support. Please enter Immanuel LYF. If the pop-up window doesn’t appear automatically, towards the top left corner it says “support a new fundraiser”. That link will also open up the window. Members will also be available after church to take orders. All orders are due by December 5th and we should receive the items prior to Christmas. If you place your order online, they will be shipped directly to you. Thank you for supporting our members and those that are planning on attending National Convention this summer.

PICTURES TAKEN – Deb will continue taking pictures today and then again on December 5th in the fellowship hall of all of our members. 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 (membership) program.
