A very warm Immanuel welcome to Pastor John Scott.
“The largest share of life’s annoyances, its heartaches, its irritations, is due to uncontrolled temper. In one moment, by hasty, passionate, careless words, may be wrought evil that a whole lifetime’s repentance cannot undo. Oh, the hearts that are broken, the friends estranged, the lives wrecked, by the harsh, hasty words of those who might have brought help and healing! … In his own strength, man cannot rule his spirit. But through Christ, he may gain self-control.”
PRAYER EMPHASIS FOR THIS WEEK:
Praying for the spirit of self-control in us as individuals.

FUNDRAISING FOR IMMANUEL CHURCH:
Please consider helping Immanuel Church raise funds by using FundScrip, which is a fundraising program that lets us raise funds simply by purchasing gift cards for your every day shopping (i.e. groceries, gas, gifts and household items). When you purchase a $100 grocery gift card, you receive the $100 card, but in addition, a percentage is donated to our fundraising campaign. It’s like getting free money, where the only catch is you have to change your method of payment to using gift cards! There are over 240 retailers to choose from!!! Money raised will be used to fund the new elevator. And other building improvement projects. If there are any questions please direct questions to Donald Nicholson or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
