WANT TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE? Volunteers are needed to help new Americans learn the English language. No teaching expertise is necessary, just an ability to communicate in English and a desire to help others who need to learn English as they begin their new lives in our country. Along the way, you certainly will also have opportunity to share the love of our Lord, Jesus Christ, with people who do not know Him. For more information regarding the program of Christian Friends of New Americans, call Pastor Gary Dehnke at 636-4998-0559 or Carol Buckman at 314-517-8513.

THANK YOU for all the visits, cards, and well wishes given to me during my stay at the nursing home this past year. May our Lord bless you all! Mildred Malke A SPECIAL THANKS to Pastor Rueckert and Pastor Karg for providing God’s Word and Holy Communion during their home visits. I also want to thank the ILC Adult Choir, Tuesday and Sunday Bible class, members of the Care Committee and members of Immanuel for their loving support, continual prayers, beautiful cards, delicious meals and words of encouragement. A special appreciation to Eve and those anonymous Immanuel angels who deliver the loveliest flowers and finest baked goods without anyone being aware of their presence. When I was ill, my Immanuel family, including Angus, lifted me up. God is so good.
