PICTORIAL DIRECTORIES HAVE ARRIVED! – Our directories are here and ready for distribution.  If you had your picture taken at church, you qualify to receive a FREE directory.  You can pick yours up from the church office during the week.  If you would like to purchase a directory, we have some available for $10 each.  If paying by check, please make payable to Emmanuel.  Questions, call Becki in the church office at 423-1369.  Thank you.  

CHRISTMAS VESPERS SERVICES will be held at Emmanuel Lutheran Church at 10:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m., on Wednesday, December 12. Students in grades K, 1, 6, 7, and 8 will lead us in these Vesper services. The following week on Wednesday, December 19, at 10:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m., students in grades 2, 3, 4, and 5 will lead the Vespers services at St. Michael Lutheran Church. While each service will be unique, both will include our most treasured vespers traditions, the singing of “May My Light Shine” and a candlelight recession. Please communicate with grandparents and other family members who may intend to worship with us that the 10 a.m. services are generally less crowded than the evening services.

JOURNEY TO BETHLEHEM! This great event happens Sunday, December 16, during Bible class hour. Our Sunday school students (Me Too – 5th grade) will experience the Nativity come to life. There will be no Sunday school opening for these students. They should instead meet in their classrooms. Adults are invited to join the rest of this group at 10 a.m. for the final scene of the journey in the gym. Students should be picked up after the final scene in the gym at 10:15 a.m. Hope to see all of you there!
