a welcoming, affirming, justice-seeking congregation

The Flowers Today have been placed in the worship centre today in loving memory of Elaine Hickerson by her family.

Next Sunday Nancy will have a break from worship leadership. We will welcome Jim Hatherly, who currently serves as a Chaplain at Headingley Correctional Centre, as our guest preacher and worship leader.

Creating a new Stewardship Team: Immanuel is in the process of naming 2-3 people to form a Stewardship team which will begin its work in March. We are asking you, the congregation, to participate by generating names of people you believe have the gifts, who should be invited to discern if this work is something they are called to do at this time. Please put up to 4 names on the small, coloured sheet of paper you have been given this morning and place it in the box in the AMEN corner. Alternately you can email: nanette, with names you would recommend to this process.

A New New Testament Study Group will meet this Tuesday, February 18th at 6:30 pm. Please read “The Prayer of the Apostle Paul” and “The Letter to the Romans” focusing especially on Romans 1, 4-8 and 16.

Newsletter Submissions for the upcoming newsletter are Tuesday, March 11th. Please email iuchurch@mymts.net or see Sharon in the office.
