“God With Us” is the theme of our Advent Services this year!  We are making some changes to the Advent schedule this year. We will continue to have an evening meal and service at 7:00 p.m.  We are adding a service at 4:30 p.m.  This will enable the “early service” worshippers to share the Advent meal and fellowship with those who attend the “late” service. At 11 a.m. we will continue to have a shortened Advent worship and Sing-a-long for those who need to travel during daylight hours.

Let's Deck the Halls! Please join the board of Elders to decorate the church sanctuary for Christmas! We will meet Tuesday, December 4 at 6:45 to trim the tree and add other decorations in our place of worship. Pizza will be served! (note – not Monday as was on the December calendar)
Mark your calendars! December 9th Word of Life Christmas Program at the main campus - 6535 Eichelberger. 1:00 p.m.: PK - 3rd grade; 2:30 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. 4th - 8th grade.
Noah Away Today Noah Comfort Dog is in Charleston, IL this morning at Immanuel Lutheran Church. This congregation has received Rachel Comfort Dog, and it’s the passing of the vest ceremony making the official beginning of her ministry.
