News and Notes for September 20, 2020


Virtual Rally Day is here

This Sunday (9/20) is Rally Day, the traditional kickoff to the program year. We’ll have special music and messages during our virtual worship.

Choristers, pick up music

Chorister Choir parents, please pick up your child’s music tote bag either this Sunday (9/20) or next Sunday (9/27) from 11-11:30 am in Immanuel’s parking lot. Please stay in your car and pop your trunk open. Ms. Chris will be wearing a mask and will drop the tote in. Go to the Immanuel website to log in for rehearsals beginning October 7.

Dig into Bible reading

Pastor’s Cindy’s adult Bible study (Wednesdays at 7 pm) is back after a week off.

Talk about racial history

In our second session, we will look at the “History of Race in America.” Before we meet, participants will watch a video by Jeff Robinson, criminal defense lawyer and creator of the documentary “Who We Are: A Chronicle of Racism in America.” Come explore how our knowledge of the past informs our understanding of the present and impacts the path into the future. Gather on Tuesday (9/22) at either 2 or 7 pm. Go HERE to sign up.

Begin your morning with prayer

Beginning Wednesday (9/23), we will offer Morning Prayer: a short prayer- and psalm-focused service to help you begin your day in calm and connection to God. Each Wednesday we will post a video of the service for the week on the website. This prayer practice can be done one day a week or several. What better way to start your day?

Donate virtually, with coins

With no Flea Market sale, we’re collecting online donations and coins. On Friday (9/25) at 6 pm, we’ll have a virtual Fall Festival on Facebook with music and live “telethon” hosts. You can also schedule a coin pickup. Call or text Christine Danielson (directory or the church office) to arrange a visit this month. All proceeds support partners serving our community. Plus, donations of $20+ are eligible for thank-you gifts.
