Dear Immanuel Family,

This week began with a snowstorm and ended with an issue with the sewer. We never know what life will throw at us, do we? There is One that we can always count on. We know that our God is unchanging and always good. At Immanuel, children hear the love of Jesus every day. We know that you have many choices for schools in our area and you are committed to keeping your children in a school that teaches God's Word and seeks to glorify God. Thank you for that commitment.

Lutheran Schools Week is January 21-24. The dress up days are listed in the Lion Life today. 

God’s blessings in the new year,
Sharon Wallace

Basketball season is here! Students who play basketball are not allowed to stay after school unless there is a practice scheduled right after school. So, if practice is at 4:30, student athletes must go home after school or go to child care if they are registered. Then, at 4:30 (no earlier than 4:20) or 6:00, students return to school for scheduled practice.

The Immanuel policy is that no student is allowed in the building unsupervised after 3:10. Parents need to be with their children until practice begins or a coach is in charge.

See the Sports Calendar for practice schedules.
20/20 Vision

Anything below line three is hopeless...without my trifocals its just a blur. Reading, driving, eating [unless I don't want to know what's on my plate] or walking without my glasses are NOT recommended.

When the followers of John the Baptist asked Jesus if he was the Messiah. Jesus asked them what they'd seen. Dead raised? Yes. Sick healed? Yes. Good News? Definitely. The Holy Spirit brings Jesus into focus so that we see Him as Savior, God and Lord of His Church.

In 2020 we at Immanuel are praying for 20/20 Vision. We want to see Jesus clearly. We also want to see where he's leading. Next week we're starting a sermon series entitled  20/20 Vision  that will invite us to ask, ' Where do we see Jesus leading us in 2020 ?'

A clear vision of following Jesus brings purpose and a sense of excitement. It causes us to see opportunities that were invisible before. It births holy expectation and joy as we become united in purpose. We are here not by mistake or coincidence. We are here  for such a time as this  (Esther 4.14).

20/20 Vision
For Such a Time as This
Myth Busters
Clean Hearts, Dirty Hands
Receive, Believe, Love [repeat]
How is Jesus Messing With You?

It's time to ask the Lord to lead us into our future. Are you excited?

Grace and Peace, dear friends:
