January 2019
The New Year often brings about change. Maybe you want to quit a bad habit or start a new healthy habit. Changes can be easy to make, but aren't always easy to stick with. Sometimes we are all too hard on ourselves and too hard on others. Remember, none of us are perfect. Someone told me the other day while we were conversing, "We are all human and we all make mistakes." and not to be so hard on myself. That was something I needed to hear that day. Life can be messy and has its ups and downs, but one thing that is consistent and keeps me going is God's love!

The Elderberries will meet this month for a "Coffee Hour.”  Join us on Monday, January 28 at 11:00 a.m. in the Fellowship Hall for refreshments and fellowship. Registration is appreciated, but not required. Please call Angela McCoy to register.

Children’s Worship
Children’s Worship (for ages 18 months through 2nd grade) takes place Sunday morning during the 10:30 worship service (after the Children’s Message) in the Church Nursery. We have an age appropriate Bible lesson, a craft, and playtime. Join us for the fun! Parents are always welcome to come down and get their children to participate with them in communion.

Valentine Cookie Boxes
It will soon be that time of year again when we send cookies to our out-of-town college students and military personnel in celebration of Valentine’s Day. We will be collecting cookies in the Fellowship Hall kitchen through Sunday, February 3 at 9:00 a.m. We will be packaging the boxes on Sunday, February 3 after the 10:30 a.m. worship service. Also, we need current addresses for our college students/military personnel. If you are willing to donate cookies, help us package them, or have any current information, please contact Angela McCoy (330) 332-5042 or 

Help Needed:  We have many toys in the Children’s Worship/Nursery area that need cleaned. I will be starting to clean these toys in January and would appreciate any help. I’m scheduling a Cleaning Day on Wednesday, January 23rd at 11:00am. If you can help clean toys on this day, please let me know. Your help would be greatly appreciated!

Church Library
It is said that God's word is our great heritage! Please remember, Emmanuel Lutheran Church’s library provides Christian resources for all generations. Our library's books, periodicals, and DVDs, are available for the spiritual strengthening of individuals and families. Members at Emmanuel may check out these resources for use at home.
