Sara Eytcheson will be joining us next Sunday, Nov. 12, during the Sunday School hour (choir room). She will give an update about her work in the past year and have pictures on display. Items will be available for purchase that the trade school ladies have made, including Christmas ornaments and jewelry.  MI themed goods will be available, as well as Honduran coffee! Sara hopes to see many of you there!

C.R.O.P. Walk Numbers:  We are thankful to announce that Immanuel Community Reformed will contribute $1,389.00 to the Harvest Ingathering for Church World Service/ C.R.O.P. on November 9th.  It was a beautiful walk day on October 8th.  Continue to pray that God will multiply the funds given so that EVERY NEED is supplied ~ for HIS GLORY and the coming of His Kingdom in the world!

UPDATES:  A new directory is being prepared.  Please contact the office with new information for you, whether email or phone changes.  We have duplicate emails for some and need to know which is best to use.  For your adult children, if they prefer a listing as “Friends of Immanuel”, or have their own listing, please let us know. Thanks.

CONNECT:  We meet Wednesdays; dinner is 5:30 p.m; Jr. High Youth, Children's Ministry, and Pastor’s ACTS study follow. We have had good attendance in all ages.  Come to join the fellowship and lively discussions.  No Choir the rest of November!

 Thank yous!  Immanuel's Creative Worship Team thanks actors and prop masters who helped with skits during the recent Freeway series. Your efforts brought the messages to life.  Gary Atkins also wants to thank everyone who participated in the clean up around the properties.  Great job!  (Photos are on the F.L.C. Bulletin Board; take one if you’re “featured”!   Also, you may take the picnic pictures, if you like.)
