Church Services at Immanuel for Holy Week & Easter

 

On April 2, 2020, Governor Reynolds extended her order on the state of emergency through the end of April. In keeping with this order, and in an effort to take every precaution for our members, Pastor Dodgers is offering the following services:

 

Palm Sunday, April 5

Service and Sermon will be recorded and posted on the Church YouTube Channel and on Facebook.

Pastor will be at church from 8:00am to 11:30am offering short communion services (no more than 20 mins) and averaging about 5 people per service. These services will be offered every half hour. Please call Pastor to find out when is good time to come.

 

Every Day during Holy Week

Services and Sermons or Devotions will be recorded and posted on the Church YouTube Channel and on Facebook.

A few members may attend the Maundy Thursday and Easter Vigil services to assist in the traditions of those services and use those opportunities for communion.

 

Easter Day

Service and Sermon will be recorded and posted on the Church YouTube Channel and on Facebook.

Pastor will be at church from 8:00am to 11:30am offering short communion services (no more than 20 mins) and averaging about 5 people per service. These services will be offered every half hour. Please call Pastor to find out when is a good time to come.

 

*** Pastor is also available to schedule alternate times with you or your family for a short private communion service.

 

Offerings

            It is vital to the life and ministry of our congregation that we continue to be faithful stewards in our tithes and offerings. Every one of us should give the firstfruits of what we have to God and to His Church (the Bible’s expectation is 10% of our income). Please continue to help support our church. We still have bills to pay and jobs to get done, even if you’re not able to attend a service. Currently, you may mail your offering to the church, or you can drop it in our new drop-box. There is a black, metal, secure box on the sidewalk at the corner of the building next to the ramp. You can just pull up and stick you offering in there.

 

Pick-up Devotions and Hymnals

            There are new devotion pages for each week, as well as devotion books that will get you through the rest of Lent. These are available on the table in the annex. You are also encouraged to check-out some hymnals for use at home, especially if you are watching services and Pastor’s devotions online. This way you can follow along at home. Just sign your name on the sheet provided.

 

Sermons on the Radio

            Trinity, Clinton continues to broadcast Pastor’s sermon from the previous week each Sunday (just after 8:00am) on KROS FM 105.9 or AM 1340. St. John, Clinton is on at 9:30am.

 

God’s Word Online

            There are now several ways you can hear God’s Word online. You can read Pastor’s sermons still on his sermon blog at www.externumverbum.blogspot.com. Or now you can watch our church services, as well as devotions and Bible studies with Pastor, on our church’s YouTube Channel. Just go to www.youtube.com and search for “Immanuel Lutheran Charlotte.” The first option that comes up with Luther’s Rose is our channel with all our videos. Enjoy and share it with others!

            You can also still find information for our Church and for Home Devotions on our church website www.immlutherancharlotte.org, and on our church Facebook Page.
