Mercy Offering for Assist Pregnancy Center
In conjunction with celebrating Sanctity of Human Life this month, Emmanuel is supporting Assist Pregnancy Center with our Mercy Offering on Sunday, January 22. The money raised will help fund the expansion of service hours at the Center in 2017, as Assist works to provide more medical services, pregnancy options help, and mentoring to abortion vulnerable women. A table will be set up in the foyer to offer more information about Assist, volunteer opportunities, and for any baby items you would like to donate. Contact Pete Kauer for more details. Thank you for supporting life!”

As part of our monthly series on vocation, on February 5, Emmanuel will explore how God has called us to be part of a family of nurturing and supportive relationships. Following the service, we will offer two luncheon seminars exploring relevant and practical issues: “Honoring Your Parents - when they’re aging, absent, or angry” and “Raising Your Children - in an age that has redefined sexuality and gender.” Childcare will be provided.
Spanish Speaking Sermon
On Sunday, February 8, we will have a sermon in Spanish. The sermon will be on the same passage and will take place at the same time as the English sermon. During the greeting time, you will head to Room 113, and will return prior to communion. If you know Spanish, please join us and hear the message from Israel Ruiz.
On February 19, after service, we will open our pre-marriage seminar to all married couples (ideal for those married less than 2-3 years). Majority of the seminar focuses on Biblical counseling and conflict resolution. Please RSVP to Young in order to receive the needed reading material.

Volunteers Needed for Sound Team Set Up/Take Down
The sound team needs 5 more volunteers to help unload/set up and pack/load the sound equipment. Volunteers only do this once every two months and are paired with other volunteers. This small act of service is integral to the worship team being able to practice on time. Please consider helping in this way. You can contact Israel Ruiz or Nate Telus to sign up.
Emmanuel kids need YOU as there still are needs. One Sunday per month, 10:15-12:15pm, one teacher’s assistant is needed. Please contact Beth Youmans if you’re interested.
