I Thes. 5:16-18.

Rejoice always, pray without ceasing,

give thanks in all circumstances;

for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

If you would like  to receive or renew the AFLC publication  “The Ambassador” please see Carol Gjemse.

Emmanuel WMF will hold their annual meeting on Tuesday, Nov. 17 at 1:00 pm at church. We will follow COVID-19 guidelines. Monies for missions will be distributed, planning for the 2021 calendar and officers will be elected. Our current WMF officers are; President: Tamra Berg, Vice-President: Janice Nelson, Secretary; Sue Davidson, and Treasurer: Carol Gjemse. If anyone is interested in holding one of these positions please let them know.

The Central Tri-State District Fall Rally scheduled for Saturday, October 10 in Mankato was canceled. Another event that COVID-19 affected.

Carol Gjemse had distributed the fall mission envelopes. Carol would also like to know who would like a Bible study book for 2021.

The WMF provided the altar flowers and the boutonnieres for Pastor and the confirmands on Confirmation Sunday; October 25, 2020. God’s blessings to these young people as they affirm their Christian faith and become full members of the church.

Please pray for our shut-ins and send cards, if you can. Pray for our missionaries and our National WMF President, Lavonne West and Executive Secretary, Dawn Johnson.

Our circles continue to meet for Bible study and are thankful they can have these small gatherings and study God’s word.


Operation Christmas Child

It is that time of year again when we get to share some love to less fortunate children and tell them of Jesus' love by sharing shoeboxes filled with love and gifts.

You may have taken part in year's past, but this year there are a few changes. Due to Covid 19, some of you may not want to go shopping in the stores. Let Operation Christmas Child do your shopping for you. You can Build A Box Online for $25 (that includes the shipping costs) and YOU can choose what to put in the box. You can also include a note about yourself and a photo. When you pay online, you can follow your box. You will be able to see what country it goes to. “ If you plan to Build a Box Online, please contact Dorothy to get a link, so it can be put on our church’s Goal Page.”

Each box will have added to it a leaflet "The Greatest Gift" that will tell the child about the love of Jesus. You may also include an additional $6 to pay for a child to get “The Greatest Journey”, A 12 lesson program that introduces boys and girls to salvation through faith in Christ and encourages them to grow his faithful followers.

Please bring packed boxes to church by November 22nd.  Thank you for your willingness to serve.
