International Book Study

On Tuesday, February 12th at 7:00pm we will be gathering here at Immanuel UCC with members of St. Peter’s UCC, Kiel to complete our study of Speaking Christian by Marcus Borg, which we began with our Canadian conversation partners from Ralph Connor Memorial United Church in Canmore, Alberta. For those who are interested, we will be looking at chapter 24 on Tuesday.

Helpers Needed for Lent

Our theme for the Lenten season this year will be meals. Each Wednesday evening during Lent, we will be looking at a different meal story in scripture. It seems only right to meditate on meal stories over an actual meal! As such, we are looking for a couple of volunteers each week to help provide a simple meal (soup & bread, sandwiches & salad, cereal & milk…it’s up to you!) for the evening’s worship service. We will worship and eat at the same time (in the style of the early church). Our services will be downstairs in the fellowship hall around meal tables with prayer, song, and food. There is a sign-up sheet on the back table. Please sign your name if you are willing to bring a little something on a Wednesday evening during Lent. Thank you!

These Days daily devotional booklets

New editions of These Days daily devotional booklets are available on the back tables near both sanctuary entrances 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.

Bulletin Sponsors Needed!

Sponsoring a bulletin is a great way to honor or remember a special person or event, anniversary or birthday. We are also looking for people who are willing to sponsor a bulletin for other Sundays in 2019. The cost is $10/Sunday. Please contact Ed or Kristy Pahl. Thank you!

Daytime Fellowship and Study group

The Daytime Fellowship and Study Group will NOT be meeting this week. We will resume our sessions on Tuesday, February 26th at 9:30a.m. All are welcome!

Wednesday night Small Study Group

The Wednesday Night Small Group will not be meeting this week. When we resume we will be continuing a 6-part DVD study by Andy Stanley called "Breakaway". This DVD study series will illustrate how our core beliefs dictate our decisions, which dictate the outcomes of our lives. Meeting at 6:30 pm at church. Please call Gail Gottsacker 565-2672 with any questions.

Featuring Larry Littlegeorge and Rev. Rob McDougall
Laun Center, Rm. 209, Lakeland University, W3718 South Dr., Plymouth
Larry Littlegeorge is a member of the Hochunk Nation, the Warrior Clan.  He was baptized in 1957 at the Hocak (Hochunk) Church (formerly Winnebago), which is part of the WI Conference of the UCC.  He completed the WI Conference Lay Academy in 2016 and is currently a spiritual leader of the Hocak Church. Larry has personally felt the effects of racism that he traces back to historic documents like Papal Bulls laying out the Doctrine of Discovery, and he has done a great deal of study and writing on the topic. Rev. Rob McDougall is Associate Conference Minister with primary responsibility for the Northwest Association of the Conference, of which the Hocak Church is part of. Larry and Rob will provide an overview of the Doctrine of Discovery and explain why the issue is being studied by Conference churches prior to considering a resolution to repudiate the document at the 2019 Annual Meeting.
Free; reservations are requested. Please register online by Feb. 25 at  or contact Linda Bosman at or 920-565-1023 ext. 2151.
