Presidental Ponderingsby the Immanuel Lutheran Church Council President
The Youth Group gave a wonderful presentation on Sunday June 16th showing the congregation the highlights of their mission trip. It appeared that they all had a wonderful time as well as growing in their faith by helping those less fortunate. It was very heartwarming to see the enthusiasm shown by the youth as they shared some of their most memorable experiences and how the trip affected them as a whole.
A big thank you to Jason, DeeDee and the chaperones that accompa-nied the youth, as well as the youth themselves, as they all worked very hard to make this trip possible.
As the summer progresses I have noticed how beautiful the cemetery and church lawn look. Thank you to Darryl and Norm for their hard work keeping the grounds so beautiful and showcasing our "church on the hill".
Gods blessing to you all,Steve Peterson, Immanuel Church Council President
CLEAR THE DECKS!Sarah Circle is planning a clean up/out of the church later this fall. We would like to ask all groups that have storage in the church to place all items you would like to toss in the old basement back by the kitchen. We plan to clean up the old kitchen and the little stage and any overflow areas.

Come and learn about plans for the Youth Group and Confirmation program this year. We are considering a few changes and would like your in-put. Have your input and be part of shaping the plans for the 2017-2018 year. Please let Pastor Marla know how many people from your family will be attending (for a food count).
THANK YOU! The Youth Group would like to again thank all that have supported us these past few months both financially and spiritually in order for this group to go on the trip. It was an amazing experience for both the youth and the adults. The group found out first hand what it is truly like to do God's work and spread his love to the community of Lake Traverse. We as leaders, couldn't be more proud of what they accomplished there and how they came together even more as a group. We cannot wait to go again next year!
