Thank You!!!

Thank You everyone for your prayers given during my recent surgery. I believe in the power of prayer, and felt it surrounding me during my operation and recuperation. Bernice Pearson

Ladies of Immanuel Lutheran Church, We would like to thank you for the kind-ness and love your prayer shawls have offered our residents. We thank you for the special time in each and every stitch. We thank you for the intention behind each stitch and we thank you for your prayers. God Bless each of you as you touch so many hearts with your work! Your friends here at Parmly thank you!

Thank you to Pastor Marla for visiting me and giving me Communion, and to the ladies for the beautiful shawl. Clarence McKenzie

Thank you, once again, for choosing to support Family Pathways Food Shelf. Your efforts and generosity are making a difference and are greatly appreciated! Gayle, Food Shelf Coordinator

Immanuel Lutheran Congregation, Thank you so much for your donations of school supplies, personal care and food items in September. Your support helps us provide much needed supplies to people in need in an atmosphere of dignity and respect. We appreciate all you do for us! Gayle, Food Shelf Coordinator

Upon the gifting of money to our congregation see the article about Elsie Nord’s bequest and our new policy elsewhere in this news-letter.

We thank God for Elsie Nord's generosity but more for the gift of Elsie's life. She touched so many with her lively personality, sharp wit and devotion to God. She knew He accepted our imperfections and blessed us anyway. To God be the glory for Elsie's life and her generosity!

Swedish Prayer Plaque

In Memory of Chestine Carlsted

A new prayer plaque adorns our fellowship hall which was hand painted by Jan Carlsted Elsberry in honor of her moth-er, Chestine Carlsted. A Swedish table grace is surrounded with flowing floral "kurbits" style painting, a Swedish version of "rosemaling." The plaque is to be dedicated on All Saints Day, November 5.
