WELCOME:
The Immanuel Church family would like to extend a warm welcome to all on this Holy Sabbath. May God bless you as we join together in worshipping Him today.

PRAYER MINISTRY:
God has always longed to communicate with His created beings. Before sin entered this world He walked and talked with Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. After the Fall, this was no longer possible, as sinful human beings would be consumed by His divine presence.

EMPHASIS FOR THIS WEEK:
The theme for this Week of Prayer is “Faithful to His Prophets,” and throughout the week we will consider several important questions regarding this gift of prophecy, including “Why did God send prophets?” “What moved prophets to deliver their messages?” “What are the marks of a true prophet?” “How should we interpret the prophetic word?” and more. I encourage you to set aside time each day to study and pray during this special Week of Prayer. I am certain that the Lord will abundantly bless as we come together as a church family, focusing on faithfulness to His prophets in anticipation of Christ’s.

ANNUAL WEEK OF PRAYER:
Our Annual Week of Prayer starts today during the Worship Service. It will end next Sabbath November 23. Weekday meetings – Monday to Friday will be from 7:00 – 8:00 pm. Please come out and support these meeting and allow God to shower His blessings on us. Bring out friends and family.
