Transition Team Discussion — Following each of the worship services on Sunday, September 19 and Sunday, September 26, the Transition Team is offering an opportunity to discuss our congregation’s vision for the future of Emanuel Lutheran Church. Please plan to attend one of these sessions. We need your voice to be heard!

First Communion instruction will resume with one session on Sunday, October 10, from 1:00 to 2:30.  This class is intended for any child pre-kindergarten through sixth grade who has not received instruction about Holy Communion.  One adult needs to accompany each student also.  See Pastor Mark or Deacon Kevin if you have questions.

Confirmation Class has begun meeting during the Sunday School hour.  The class will be meeting with Deacon Kevin on October 10, November 7, 14 & 21. This class is for seventh and eighth graders.  This year we will be studying The Small Catechism.  Dates for 2022 will be announced in December.

A Midweek Devotion is posted on our Facebook page every Wednesday morning.  The Morning Prayer from the ELW is used and a short lesson regarding the upcoming gospel lesson is presented.  These devotions, along with our Sunday worship services that are streamed, remain on our Facebook page and can be watched at your convenience.

Hidden Christmas, by Timothy Keller, will be the subject of a book study to be held on Mondays at 10:00 am and 6:30 pm on November 1, 8, and 15. We will meet in the Gathering Space. The book (which is a small book and only 141 pages in length) will be made available to you free of charge through the generosity of a Thrivent Grant. You can sign-up for the study and pick up your book beginning Sunday, October 3.

From the Social Ministry Board….it can be a safe bet that most of Emanuel’s members do their laundry at home instead of at a laundromat.  Did you know it currently costs roughly $4.00 to wash a load of laundry at the laundromat?  Then of course there is the drying of that same load.  It can get expensive fast.  What if based on your personal economics it was cheaper to wear dirty clothes until they are filthy, throw them away and buy replacement ones from Goodwill or another charity?  To help address the need in the Marion community we would like specific help from the congregation over the course of the next 3 months.  Participate in as many of 3 months’ activities as you like or are able; there is something for everyone to do.

First, in the month of September, we are looking for 20 bottles of HE liquid detergent or pods as well as 20 bottles of liquid fabric softener.  Please consider buying a bottle or 2 bringing them to the church and placing them in the box found in the Gathering Space.  Second, in the month of November please collect your quarters or dollars that will be used to purchase cards that feed the washing machines.  Deposit your collected monies by the end of November in the box found in the Gathering Space.  Third, in the month of December consider volunteering four hours of your time to help the Social Ministry Board provide free washers and dryers to those doing their laundry at one of Marion’s laundromats.  Questions can be directed to any member of the board; Carolyn Bailey, Cindy Schifer and Barb Russo, director.  Thank you so much for your generosity and for sharing with those less fortunate in our community.
