THE ANNUAL MEETING OF THE CONGREGATION will be today, November 11, 2018, following the worship service.

WELCOME NEW MEMBERS Today we have the joy of receiving new members into the congregation. Those joining today are: Jody and Bob Treach, and Barry Skold. Welcome to the congregation as we worship and serve the Lord together!

IMMANUEL LUTHERAN CHURCH IN FLATVILLE is offering a Crossways overview of the Bible on Saturday, December 1st. It is an all-day event. The cost is $20. It’s a great way to get a quick overview of the Bible.

THE EMPTY TOMB CHRISTMAS GIVE AWAY is coming Dec. 7-8, 2018, and there is much that needs to be done in preparation for it. Cindy Gates is overseeing the event and she is looking for volunteers to help her. Empty Tomb already has hundreds of gift items; volunteers are needed to put together theme baskets for children to give to their parents, and to clean and organize toys. In general, volunteers can help on Tuesdays and Saturdays anytime between 5:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. and Sundays between 2:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m., as well as Nov. 22 (Thanksgiving Day) between 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. If you are able to help, please call empty tomb and leave a message for Cindy at 217-356-7913 (not a public number). Thanks!

THE GLENWOOD ASSISTED LIVING FACILITY is looking for volunteers to do activities with the residents-crafts, games, conversation, etc. See Pastor Oman for details.
