VBS "Debriefing"

Calling all VBS volunteers!  Please come to a "debriefing" in the social hall on Monday, September 24 at 7PM.  What were your experiences?  What changes should we plan for next year?  We'd like to hear from you while our memories are still fresh!


"K"alling all "K"nitters

Immanuel's Martha & Mary Comfort Ministry ("A ministry of hand-made comfort with prayer") makes shawls and lap robes for people under stress due to illness, loss, or other events in their lives, giving them a tangible reminder of our prayers.  We also provide baptismal blankets for infants/children when they receive the Sacrament of Holy Baptism.  The "M&M" members often work on their projects at home, but we do meet twice a year for fellowship, to turn in finished projects, and pick up supplies for new ones.

The "M&M"s will be meeting in the social hall on Saturday, October 6, from 9 to 11:30AM.  Would you like to participate in this outreach ministry?  Come join us.  All skill levels are welcome!  Question?  Contact the church office at 425-252-7038 or
