Adult Sunday School
Today at 10 am

The adult Sunday school class will be wrapping up our discussion on Making Sense of Scripture on April 18. All are welcome to join us as we address the final question: “What Kind of Authority Does the Bible Hold?” In our next study beginning April 25, we will apply what we’ve learned about making sense of the scripture with a study on the gospels—the four that we are familiar with in the Bible as well as noncanonical gospels. Join in today via Zoom

O God, receive this gift as you receive us: like a mother receives her child, with arms open wide. Nourish us anew in your tender care, and empower us in faithful service to tend to others with this same love, through Jesus Christ, our saving grace. Amen.

A Bible Study You Can Eat! Sunday, April 25 at 4:00PM

Log in to learn about food and the Bible as we gather together with folks from both Immanuel and Incarnate Word on Zoom Sunday, April 25 at 4:00 pm. In this fun event, Pastors Doug and Joanne will lead us as we cook together and hear how food was a part of many stories throughout the Bible. We’ll learn about 1st century kitchens and meal preparation. And we’ll put together a whole meal! We’ll make cheese, bake bread, put together a main dish and veggies, learn about 1st century wine and beer, and top it all off with some real honest-to-goodness Roman cheesecake from a 2nd century cookbook!

Pastor Joanne will share recipes ahead of time and you are invited to cook along in your own kitchen, or simply watch and try it out later.

You are then invited to make a donation to World Hunger in thanks of how God provides for us! You may send your gift to Immanuel and mark it for World Hunger. Come learn about food and Jesus’ ministry, and get a taste of some ancient recipes!

Stewardship Corner

April 22nd is Earth Day and as Psalm 115:16 states:

 The heavens are the Lord’s heavens,
    but the earth he has given to human beings.

Every day on the news we hear about climate change, Co2 omissions, and other issues impacting the long-term health of our planet. If you’re looking for simple changes you can make at home in honor of this holiday, follow some or all of these ideas listed below. After all, even a tiny bit can go a long way when it comes to saving the earth.

1. Turn your faucet off when brushing your teeth
