Every deliverance, every blessing, that God in the past has granted to His people, should be kept fresh in memory’s hall as a sure pledge of further and richer, increasing blessings that He will bestow. (Our High Calling Page 196) There is no limit to the blessings that it is our privilege to receive.
PRAYER EMPHASIS FOR THIS WEEK:
Let us try to spend our prayer time this coming week in THANKSGIVING AND PRAISE TO GOD FOR THE MANY BLESSINGS WE HAVE RECEIVED FROM GOD AND WILL CONTINUE TO RECIEVE. Thank you all.

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: email@example.com.
