News from our Weekly Bulletin
After prayerful consideration of the latest recommendations from public authorities, we have decided to cancel all activities at Emmanuel through April 24. We hope to resume worship services on Sunday, April 26 if circumstances permit.
    We'd love to be able to say that God wouldn't let us get sick from coming to church, but that sounds too much like the devil tempting Jesus to throw himself down from the highest point of the temple. We'll respect the advice of public authorities and trust God's continual care.

Missing:  One of our church keys attached to a list of altar duties has gone missing. If you’ve used it recently, please search your coat pockets and couch cushions!

NLHS Wood Shop Wish List:  We have 14 students in our woodworking course. Equipment is needed and will be deeply appreciated. While new equipment is certainly desirable, used items in good working order are acceptable. As always, we thank you for your consideration and generosity.

The Marathon County Transportation System is recruiting volunteer drivers. This program was created in 2002 to take elderly and disabled people to their appointments. We need more drivers to accommodate the increasing requests, especially on the west side of Marathon County.
    If you have free time and would like to help elderly, veteran, or disabled people in your community, we can accommodate your schedule. Individuals in need of transportation will be matched with volunteer drivers in their area to escort them to their appointments. Drivers are reimbursed at 57.5 cents/mile to cover expenses.
    If you have questions or are interested in an application, please call Jenny McKenzie at the Marathon County Transportation Program at 715-841-5101. Your help is greatly appreciated.

Visit the Northland Lutheran High School Pride Pump to earn 2 cents/ gallon for Northland Lutheran High. It’s located at the R-Store Cedar Creek BP, 10201 Park Plaza, Rothschild, next to Culver’s. is inviting anyone in the Association to participate in a planning session the morning of Saturday, January 19, from 8:00 to 11:30. We pray the discussions and actions that stem from that day drive five-year plans to greater reach our mission and vision. 

Dime & Dollar Thrift Shop is an important source of support for Northland Lutheran High. Volunteers are needed; please call Jamie at 715-849-4168. Dime & Dollar has two locations: 211 Alexander St. in Wausau, and 3268 Church St. in Stevens Point.

Handicap Parking:  Each of the two signs at the front of our carport is intended to reserve two spaces, for the four handicap spaces required by law. Please leave those spaces for vehicles with official handicap plates or cards. It would be frustrating for those who need them to find them blocked by non-handicap vehicles.
   If you would like to park close to the building, please do so along the north side, where the exterior door to the Fellowship Hall will be unlocked. Or ask one of our ushers to park your car for you.
