PASTOR'S CORNER 


I am writing this on the coolest morning we have had for months, so of course, my mind wanders off away from summer and into Fall.  The leaves will be changing colors soon and the buses will come back to life.  As summer comes to a close, we find new life all around us.  One beautiful season turns into a different yet another beautiful season full of God's wonder.  How amazing that our Creator shares it with us!
  
The staff and Pastor Rich and I are busy putting together youth groups activities, including confirmation, fund raiser, a trip to Youth Quake, worship, and more.  Can you believe it; we have even started looking at Christmas already.  Holly and Sara are pleased to be taking on additional responsibilities with our youth and working together more closely.  They have a passion for the church and the message of God's love for the world.  I am looking forward to working with them and watching them grow in faith as they walk with the youth of the congregation.
  
Pastor Rich and I will be teaching confirmation; due to a conference we need to attend in mid-September and being new to Immanuel, these classes will be starting up the last week of September.  I have always loved this part of being a pastor, so I am looking forward to getting to know the youth better and learning with them.  
  
The last piece of new Fall news it that I am getting closer to making a selection for the all church small group Bible study.  It's not on the schedule yet, but soon a meeting will be held for anyone interested in being a facilitator for a small group.
  
God is always doing something new and wonderful in our midst.  Thanks be to God!
  
Pastor Martha

If someone needs to stay on the list, just let Brenda know by using the worship card found in the weekly bulletin, calling the church office (262.248.4211), emailing Brenda at secretary@immanuellg.org, or dropping off a note in the church office.

Journey Through Grief Group Support Group

 

A grief support group is being offered this fall, tentatively starting in October and running for 7 weeks.  Meetings are anticipated to take place from 6:30 - 8:00 p.m. at Immanuel on a Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday.  This is a spiritually and Bible based group whose purpose is to walk together through the difficult times of the loss of a precious family member or dear friend.  While we will "never get over" the loss of a loved one, our goal is to learn to cope with and become reconciled to the losses that inevitably occur in life.  When we grieve and mourn well and in a healthy manner we will be able to transform our grief experiences into a productive, vital life that continues to be sustained by cherished memories and the hope and promises our faith gives us.  Those best served by this group will have experienced the loss at least three months ago.  There are no restrictions to losses that have occurred some time ago.  Participation will be limited to twelve people with a minimum of four needed to offer the group.   ALL are welcome...you are not required to be a member of Immanuel.    A small donation is requested to cover the costs of materials.  Contact Evie Schulz at church by if you are interested or if you have questions.   262-203-0463; 262-728-6542;
