Dear Immanuel Family,
I can’t believe we’re already heading into September and getting ready to start back up with our school year schedule & activities!
Wednesdays are traditionally church nights, especially for our youth. This year, our youth from Immanuel will continue to meet with the Bethel youth for confirmation classes. Everyone grades 6-12 is invited! Even if you haven’t been to Sunday School or Confirmation class in a long time (or ever!) come join us! Everyone is welcome!
This year we are also wanting to add to our congregation’s ministry a couple of events for people of all ages to gather, enjoy time together as a family of faith and help our youngest members grow in faith. Traditional Sunday School just isn’t a fit for families in today’s culture, so we are trying to be creative in providing some opportunities and resources to help our families grow in faith together. I hope we can have a few events during the year for the whole congregation on a Sunday afternoon or Wednesday evening that will be a time to specifically welcome and encourage our families with young children. Stay tuned! (I am looking ahead to an Advent/Christmas event on Wednesday, Dec. 14, so put that on your calendar!)
As I look back on the summer, I continue to be thankful for the time our confirmation students and I spent together at Camp Onomia, and for the time I spent with our older youth from Bethel on the canoe trip. Both of those experiences were such wonderful time of getting to know each other better, laughing together, enjoying days in God’s beautiful creation, talking about life and faith, and learning more about what it means that we live in this messy world as Children of God who are precious, beloved, and sent out to be God’s love for others. It is fun to look forward to more time growing in faith together at Camp Onomia and on other trips in the years to come!
Finally, one more word about the importance of Bible camps and an opportunity to support our own Camp Onomia. Bible camp in general provides a wonderful and unique opportunity to grow in faith and to experience God’s grace. Camp is a time and place away from the distractions and challenges of normal daily life. At camp, the days are spent in an intentional Chrisitan community that worships, serves, rests, plays, prays, talks, adventures, and laughs together in a way that we are for each other the presence of the love of God as made known to us in Jesus. We have such a gift in our being so close to Camp Onomia!
The Quilt Auction on Saturday, September 17th is a wonderful way for us to support our camp! Hope to see you there! And be watching for more opportunities to be involved in and enjoy the ministry of Camp Onomia! (There will be quilts made and donated by our very own Immanuel quilters and by Jean Walock!)
See you in worship! Pastor Kari
