Caroling was so much fun last night! I hope it becomes an annual tradition!
The countdown is on! Committee members are busy working on decorations and counting supplies to make sure you have an AMAZING week at VBS! We are only 3 participants away from meeting our registration numbers from last year. I know we can beat that number this year! Be sure to ask your friends if they have registered so we can make final plans for those who will be coming! Decorating will take place next weekend, July 29 & 30. If you are interested in assisting, there is a space on our registration page where you can sign up to help. Volunteers will not be turned away as it takes a large group to make sure the kiddos are having fun and staying safe! If the Holy Spirit is calling you to help, please register online. We can't wait to see you at 2017 Vacation Bible School!

As members of the family of God, we proclaim God’s grace through our worship, education, witness, service, and stewardship

We are a church that shares the love of Jesus with others as it is shared with us. Our church serves the community around us, by praying, caring and serving as ambassadors for Christ. Worship Services: Saturday Night Service 5:30pm Sunday Morning Service 10:15am ALL ARE WELCOME!

Congratulations class of 2020 on all of your accomplishments! We are so proud of the people you have grown to be and will continue to pray for you as you all grow. We look forward to seeing what else you achieve as you move forward.

What a beautiful Friday! Enjoy the 🌞! We will “see” you all online this weekend for service!!

[05/08/20]   Following is a press release issued by the Western Iowa Synod and 20 other denominational leaders this morning, May 7. If you would like to read the joint statement referred to in the press release, please email me at [email protected] or text me at 712-541-5035 and I will get it to you. If possible, I will also upload it here on FB.

You may share both the press release and the statement.

On April 28, twenty-one denominational leaders from ten denominations from across Iowa issued a joint statement regarding Governor Kim Reynolds proclamation on April 27 to allow congregations to gather in-person despite the continued spread of COVID-19. The joint statement urged congregations to refrain from in-person gatherings, including worship.

On Friday, May 8, Vice President Mike Pence is expected to be in Iowa to urge faith leaders to open up churches for worship. The denominational leaders remain committed to their statement from April 28 and continue to urge congregations to refrain from in-person gatherings.

The statement from April 28 signed by the twenty-one denominational leaders is attached. An introductory paragraph addressing the current visit by Vice President Mike Pence has been added to the statement by the denominational leaders:

As church denominational leaders, representing more than 1.2 million Christians throughout the state of Iowa, we are grateful for the opportunity provided by the upcoming visit of Vice President Mike Pence to re-issue and recommit to our position regarding in-person gatherings of faith communities, whether for worship or group ministries.

With one voice, we want to assure the Vice President that Iowa’s denominational leaders are currently working closely with local faith leaders in developing plans for when it becomes time to gather again in person. That time is likely to arrive in waves, reflecting regional diversity, with particular attention given to safe practices and a close observation of the scientific and local data on the spread of this coronavirus.

We continue to abide unanimously to our statement of April 28th, which we re-issue at this time.

[05/03/20]   Sunday School, May 3, 2020 ~ The Gospel is for Everyone ~

Happy Birthday to our congregation members this week: Samuel M, Dennis B, Kerry H, James E, Richard D and Gerald G! Blessings as you celebrate!!

[04/30/20]   As the coronavirus may be starting to appear in the community, please keep distancing yourself/selves by staying home as much as possible. If you must go out, please remember to wear a mask, keep at least 6 feet (2m) between yourself and others, and wash, wash, wash your hands!

And if you don't have a mask, you might talk to Linda Nielsen or Venice Stowers. I imagine lots of others are also making them--they're just the two I know of that are.

Be safe, be well, and remember, God's got this!

[04/27/20]   The Gospel Mission in Sioux City is in need of food items for their food pantry. We are conducting a drive at Immanuel to assist them with this project, so we are requesting your help. Some suggestions include canned fruits and vegetables, soups, spam, tuna, tomato paste, pasta and anything that could be used to make a meal. You can also add food items you might enjoy if the tables were turned.
They have an immediate need for the Agape Kitchen, which supports meals served on campus. Any #10 can size of fruits, vegetables, soups, tomato paste or pastas are welcome. Another idea is Styrofoam containers to put the meals in for clients.
You can put your contributions inside the east door at church from now until noon on Monday, May 4. There are also boxes there if you wish to use them for your supplies.

Sunday School, 4-26-20. Be sure to enjoy the sunshine today!

Happy Birthday to our congregation members this week: Joel S, Joyce H, Maya M, David H and Nick M! Blessings as you celebrate!!
