Immanuel Vision

By Pastor Steve

 

Town hall meetings are great tools for Immanuel to listen, learn, grow, and communicate. Immanuel hosts town hall meetings regularly; at our last town hall, we were able to hear a few important things that I’d like to share with the full family. Our focus at this town hall included the spaces needed for ministry here at Immanuel. As we continue to carry out ministry here today, we also look to the future about what we might be able to do for His glory. Here is a summary of what Immanuel has shared about the need for space as the ministry continues and grows.

 

Immanuel needs multi-purpose space. A fellowship hall that allows time for Immanuel's family and friends to enjoy time together. This space should also afford Immanuel to gather donations for the ministry to serve others (food pantry, giving tree, and other in-gatherings). We also need transitional space that allows for multiple events (including private ones). Immanuel needs ministry rooms for Bible studies, a library, quilting, music, and future growth.

 

Immanuel also needs parking space for those who come to our property. We need restrooms that are upgraded and have more stalls with space. Immanuel needs places to store ministry and technology items. Immanuel could use increased garage and workshop space for maintaining the property. We need additional office space to meet current needs and future growth of staff to extend our Gospel work! This office space should have a separate workroom and a separate sick room. We could also use an ice machine.

 

Immanuel also needs more specific spaces to accommodate all our ministry activities. We need a church and school library, youth room, and classrooms for specific needs. Those mentioned include special education, art, STEM, after-school child care, cafeteria, music and band, and the like. As we continue to develop a ministry for His glory, we work together to develop plans and initiatives that keep us moving forward as we grow living into Christ-following servants!

 

I greatly appreciate those who were able to participate in the town hall and look forward to our next one on April 16th. Please know that my door is always open and I pray that the Lord continues to provide opportunities for our Immanuel family to grow and serve so that we look more and more like Jesus!

Immanuel Vision

By Pastor Steve

New Year’s resolutions are good, but are often hard to stick with. Members of Immanuel may well consider taking up some new habits in 2023 and we will help cheer you on toward love and good deeds! Consider being a part of a small group! A small group is simply a group of people that meet at least once a month to build godly relationships that encourage one another in the faith, support one another through the Christian life, and pray for one another. Fill out the small group form if you would like to get connected to a small group. 

 

All our members should challenge themselves to read through the Bible (either for the first time or for the twentieth time). Be sure to get your Bible Reading Plan for 2023! If you love to write, maybe you would like to write a devotional for Immanuel. If you are interested, reach out and let me know so we can get you on the schedule! We always enjoy when God’s people use their gifts to bless others! 

 

You might even want to jump into helping when you are here at Immanuel! If you would be willing to usher at the service you attend, read at the service you attend, help plan a service project once a quarter, run the slides or livestream media, or any other way you serve at Immanuel please contact the church office! Pray about how you can grow to be like Jesus as we recount His many blessings this past year and how he calls us into living as His people. 

 

You might also plan to grow and begin attending Sunday morning Bible study! Bible studies are held every Sunday morning from 9:15am - 10:15am, so when the kids go to Sunday school the adults study His Word as we lead others in the practices of the faith! Check out the new Bible studies that are starting up in January! You could also join a midweek Bible study; like Pastor Colby’s new Bible study on Wednesday (either at 1pm or 6pm).

 

Immanuel would also love to have your voice at our family meeting at our Sunday January 15th town hall! We will be looking at Immanuel’s needs, specifically in regards to spaces needed for ministry. Join the conversation as we work together to grow as His people! I’ll share a summary of the information in our February Vision eNews (coming out Feb 11th).

 

Immanuel’s vision is that all our members are faithfully serving, reading God’s Word each year, participating in small groups, and attending Bible studies! This is how we as God’s people glorify God and transform into Christ following servants! The faith isn’t just informative, it transforms us into living as His children everyday until we look fully like Jesus!

The Family of Christ

By Jessie Pelnar

 

The most powerful way we engage as a church family has been and will always be face-to-face. Thanks to the welcoming people and environment of our church, school, and child care, we are bringing people to Jesus all the time. In 1912, Immanuel Church began and set out to include a school as a mission of the church to bring families closer to Christ every day. 110 years later, many things have changed, but Immanuel will always be about family and bringing others to life in Christ.

 

On a Tuesday morning, after home daycare plans had fallen through, Christina was desperately looking for a daycare option for her newborn, Kasey. After calling a plethora of childcare centers, Christina found Immanuel. "After my walk-through, I knew that Immanuel was the place for Kasey. She absolutely LOVES it there and it’s apparent the teachers really love her! She’s 9 months old now and started there at 10 weeks", explains Christina. She goes on to say, "We love it so much here that we decided to get her baptized at Immanuel Lutheran as well! Pastor Henderson is so much fun and just absolutely amazing as is Pastor Colby! Her Baptism was beautiful and perfect thanks to everyone at Immanuel Lutheran. We are constantly referring people there too!"

 

God has given us an opportunity to witness to everyone we meet, whether it's for the first time or the hundredth time. Always remember to keep being the hands and feet of Jesus. You are doing a great job!

Month at a Glance

By Pastor Steve

 

February is an exciting month and 2023 keeps rolling on! In fact, it seems like we just celebrated the Birth of Jesus and now we are preparing for the vigil of Lent! Here are some of the highlights that we have to look forward to as we continually transform into the image of Jesus! 

 

National Marriage Week (Feb 12-18): This is a national reminder that marriages take work as man and woman, joined together by God, seek to continue to grow together. This year Immanuel will provide a devotional book to help you develop VISION for the marriage you have always hoped for and encourage you to grow into this as man and wife!

 

Immanuel’s Mission: Immanuel Lutheran Church exists to glorify God and

make disciples by transforming people from self-focused living into Christ-following servants!

 

Immanuel Basketball Tournament (Jan 26-29): Come and cheer on the 7th & 8th Grade Lions (boys and girls teams) as they compete to be champions! See how they “Play for the One” who gives us victory over sin and death! Sign up to serve (contact the office) and join in the fun!

 

Men’s Breakfast (Jan 28 @ 8am): Men of Immanuel gather together to encourage and support one another around some good nourishment! Come and be Joshua 1:9 Men!

 

Blood Drive (Feb 3): Be like Jesus and give a little of your blood to bless and care for others! Every 56 days you are free to donate, so come and donate at Immanuel! 

 

Developing a Servant’s Heart (Feb 5 @ 11:45am): 8th grade students and families are invited to join us for a fellowship meal and a time of reflection as we discuss exploring the ways to incorporate a mission mindset for growing disciples of Jesus. We will talk about the priority of the faith as well as the activities of the growing disciple which includes participation in youth groups, mission projects, and Youth gatherings. We will also cover an overview of the events leading up to confirmation.

 

Mexico Trip Meeting (Feb 5 @ 6pm): Come to the meeting to finalize the Mexico mission team (this is the deadline to join). This team will travel to Mexico in July of 2023 to build a home and bless others by serving as the hands and feet of Jesus through mission work!

 

Tech Safety (Feb 7 @ 6:30pm): In partnership with the Brookfield Police Department, Immanuel will host a Tech Safety workshop here. This is a parent only event as the presentation will be focused on helping parents keep children safe on the internet and other digital technologies. All are welcome, but this is the Everyday Encounter Event for 3-5th grade and will be valuable for all parents!

 

Immanuel Open House (Feb 8; 8am-3pm, 5pm-7pm): Come take a tour of our amazing Ministry here at Immanuel. If you are looking for a school for your child who is in 3K-8th grade, contact Mr. Amling for a personal tour! Email-aamling@immanuelbrookfield.org.

 

Immanuel Grandparents Group (Feb 9 @ 1pm): This is a time when Seniors come together for devotion, bible study, and fellowship. Come and share stories and look for ways we can lead spiritually as grandparents.

 

Uganda Mission Team (Feb 12 @ 12:30pm): The mission team will meet to develop plans for the VBS activities when serving in Uganda. Want to be involved, but not able to travel to Uganda. Consider donating forever seeds (our goal is to collect 1500 seed packets), purchasing City Tins (discounts for local restaurants), or giving financially to support their work. Watch for more fundraisers and ways to get involved leading up to their trip April 20th - May 6th.

 

Women in Ministry (Feb 14 @ 11am): Women in Ministry is an organization that gathers together for devotions, prayer, fellowship, a meal, and a business meeting. The purpose of the group is to welcome and encourage women to use their God given gifts as they support the ministries of Immanuel Lutheran. WIM is also part of LWML (Lutheran Women Missionary League) which supports global missions.

 

Transfiguration of Our Lord (Feb 19): Join us for worship this weekend as we see Jesus transformed before us! In preparation for Lent, we see the glory of Jesus and begin a journey that leads all the way to His cross. Our sins lead Him there, but His love holds Him there as He pays for the sins of the world! At the close of this service, we sing farewell to Alleluia and being the journey of Lent.

 

Ash Wednesday Worship (Feb 22 @ 4pm or 6:30pm): Begin the journey of Lent with worship on Ash Wednesday. Lent is a call to repentance and begins with the imposition of ashes. Regular Lent worship will be held on Wednesdays at 6:30pm to help our devotion to Jesus grow and shine for all to see.

 

Middle School Fun Night (Feb 24 @ 6pm):  Middle School Fun Night is a night where Immanuel students, grades 6-8, will be able to enjoy fun and fellowship in a safe and inclusive environment. There will be a dodgeball tournament, video game stations, a dance, snack bar, photo booth and a board/card game area so that as many interests are met as possible. We will start our night out with a devotion in the sanctuary, and end the evening with a group prayer in the gym.

 

Men’s Breakfast (Feb 25 @ 8am): Men of Immanuel gather together to encourage and support one another around some good nourishment! Come and be Joshua 1:9 Men!
