No Worship Service, Sunday School or Other Activities

Immanuel UCC has mde the difficult decision postpone our worship services, Sunday School, and other activities until further notice. Please know that it has been a difficult decision made prayerfully with great care for the church that we all deeply love. While it will be challenging for us to be apart from one another, we trust that this is the safest, most responsible and loving way to proceed during these uncertain days.

Rest assured, NO MATTER WHAT, WE ARE THE CHURCH. Social distancing does not in any way mean that our mission and ministry will cease. On the contrary, IT IS DURING TIMES OF ADVERSITY THAT THE CHURCH CAN BE AT ITS STRONGEST AND BEST. For the time being, we will simply have to find creative and innovative ways to continue our mission and ministry.

So, here is what we are going to do:

We are going to take care of each other:

We are going to worship from afar, but in solidarity:

We are going to take care of our community:

We are going to continue our practices of joyful generosity:

Please know that Rev. Laura, along with the Consistory, will do our best to keep you posted on any and all developments. We pledge to be persistent and creative in seeking ways to keep our congregation cared for and connected during this time of physical separation. It may be helpful for us to bring to mind Abram and Sarai, our ancestors in the story of faith, who were called by God to journey into the unknown with nothing but a promise that God would bless them, and through them, God would bless all the families of earth. That is the promise we cling to in these days. Though we are facing troubled and uncertain times, God's words of hope and promise and blessing remain, giving us the courage to lead lives of faithfulness which, in turn, bless others.

Until we meet again, may the strong love of God, the peace of Christ, and the companionship of the Holy Spirit be and abide with you.

Announcements

WE WELCOME ALL TO WORSHIP WITH US.

Please sign our guest register if you would like to register your visit. Speak with Pastor Laura Yurs or a member of our congregation if you are interested in church membership or knowing more about becoming part of our Immanuel UCC family. Wherever you are on your life’s journey, we welcome you and invite you to be with us again and again! Restrooms are located on the lower level. In accordance with Immanuel UCC’s Safe Sanctuary Guidelines, an unsupervised nursery is available during our worship service for parents and their young children in the Sunday School room at the rear of the church sanctuary. Parents are responsible for the supervision of their children at all times while on the church premises.

Pop-up Drive-Thru Food Pantry

Immanuel UCC is offering a Pop-Up Drive-Thru Food Pantry beginning this week and continuing until the HG schools reopen.

Anyone from the community who wishes is welcome to drive through the Immanuel parking lot on Thursdays from 4:00-7:00pm and Saturdays from 9:00am-noon. A healthy Immanuel volunteer will run a bag of pantry staples (enough for lunch for a family for a few days) out to cars. It will be a "no-contact" set-up. The volunteer will place the bag next to the car, once the volunteer is at a safe distance, the driver can open the car door, take their food, and be on their way.

We have had a number of questions about supporting this effort with donations. We will accept drive-up donations at church during the hours above. Please leave donations outside to limit contact. Thanks.

One Great Hour of Sharing UCC Special Mission Offering

One Great Hour of Sharing

Beginning Sunday, March 1st through Sunday, March 29th we will be collecting gifts for One Great Hour of Sharing (OGHS), one of the UCC Special Mission Offerings. OGHS involves you in disaster, refugee/immigration, and development ministries throughout the world. When a disaster strikes or people are displaced or made refugees by violence or extreme poverty, you are part of the immediate response and of the long-term recovery. Through OGHS you engage in holistic development programs including health care, education, agriculture, food sustainability, micro-financing and women's empowerment. Because the UCC relates in mutual partnership to churches and organizations through Global Ministries and worldwide response and recovery networks, your contributions to One Great Hour of Sharing put you in the right place at the right time for the relief, accompaniment and recovery of the most vulnerable. You meet immediate needs and you address the underlying causes that create those needs in the first place. Envelopes for the One Great Hour of Sharing offering will be available in the pews in the sanctuary throughout the month of March. You can also donate online. Please consider giving generously to this mission of our wider church.

Assisted Listening Devices

We have several ssisted listening devices that are available for use during worship. Please see Mike Gottsacker to get one.

Large Print Bulletins

Large Print Bulletins are available for members who are visually impaired. Please see an usher if you would like one.
