Next Sunday marks the beginning of our new church year.  Newly elected teachers and officers will be assuming their duties.  We are excited about this coming year!

Teachers, next Sunday is Promotion Sunday, if you have young students moving up into the next grade, please be sure to show them their new classroom.  There is a spirit of great expectation here at Immanuel as we plan for future growth in all areas of the ministry. 

Let’s do it for His glory.
