Parents are responsible for the supervision of their children at all times while on the church premises.

The Daytime Fellowship and Study group will NOT be meeting for the next couple weeks. We will resume our Bible study time on Tuesday, July 24th at 9:30a.m., upstairs in the back Sunday School room. All are welcome!

Volunteers Needed

Please plan on sticking around for a bit after worship on Sunday, July 29th to help out Ashleigh Hartlaub from our congregation with a project she is working on as part of her work with the Center for Advancing Population Science out of the Medical College of Wisconsin. Below is a description from Ashleigh about how she hopes some of us from Immanuel will be able to help her in her work:
We are in the process of working to understand how social determinants of health (factors such as where people are born, live, grow up, and work) affect health outcomes in adult life. We are trying to include as diverse a sample as possible in our study and would like to extend an invitation to you to participate in our study. It is only a 1-time survey that takes about 1 hour to complete.  Individuals who participate must be at least 21 years old. The information that we learn from the study will help us to be able to determine which factors have a greater impact on health outcomes like quality of life, blood pressure, weight, etc. We also recognize that time is very valuable so we are offering our participants a $25 gift card to Wal-Mart for completing the survey. Thank you in advance!

A New Mission Opportunity!

Last month we had representatives from Safe Harbor of Sheboygan County offer a Moment for Mission during worship. They shared a need at their facility for blankets, pillows, and snacks for children (granola bars, fruit snacks, individually wrapped cheese and cracker packs, etc.).
The Immanuel UCC Mission Committee is challenging the congregation to collect 100 items for Safe Harbor now through July 15th. If we are successful, the Mission Committee will reward the congregation with an outdoor movie night on Sunday, July 29th at 7:30p.m. If 150 items are collected, the Mission Committee will provide popcorn. If we collect 400 items, the Mission Committee will provide root beer floats!
A bin for these items is labeled and situated at the rear of the sanctuary. Thank you in advance for your participation and generosity!

These Days daily devotional booklets

These Days daily devotional booklets are available on the back table for anyone who would like to take one home with them. Please note there are a limited number of large print booklets in addition to the regular print.
