Christmas Tree for First Immanuel cost $400.00 this year. You can help offset the cost.  If 16 people donate $25.00 each this will cover the cost.  Write Christmas Tree in the memo line. Thank you!

Advent Suppers We have 2 dates not filled for help with supper. December 7th and December 21st.  Please prayerfully consider helping out .  Sign up in the narthex.

OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD Every gift-filled shoebox is a tool for evangelism and discipleship for a local church around the world.  At Operation Christmas Child outreach events, boys and girls hear the Good News of the Lord Jesus Christ and receive a tangible expression of God’s love through one of our prayerfully packed shoeboxes. Each and every person at First Immanuel Lutheran Church is an active participant in OCC.  Everyone is involved by their prayers, cash, donations, crafts, sewing and/or crochet (or knitting).  I’d like to encourage y’all to write a letter or fill in one of the coloring pages (located on the OCC table in the narthex).  Please return the message to Beth Braun or leave it on the OCC table. We have 120 boxes this year so we really appreciate if you write or color more than one page.  These letters often become cherished items for the child.  We need 93 more letters. Thank you for all your support in this ministry.
