 is the theme of our Summer Bible School for students entering Kindergarten through 8th grade this fall. Classes will be held on three more Fridays this summer, from 9:30 to 11:00 a.m.: July 12     & 26 and August 9. Children of our congregation and of friends and neighbors are welcome.
Our Sunday School families will clean and refurbish our picnic shelter behind the parsonage. Work days will be announced as they are set.

Thank You to all who contributed to our June 30 Dedication Anniversary, whether it was helping to set up, preparing food, donating baskets, or–most important–inviting friends and family to join us. Through our special offering envelopes we contributed $2,175.00, and through our basket auction $860.00, to our General Fund deficit reduction offering. Several regular offering envelopes also included extra amounts. Updated figures will be available at our July quarterly voters’ meeting.

Thank you to our Ladies’ Aid for donating the purchase price of a refrigerator, stove, and dish washer for the parsonage kitchen.

Our Summer Quarterly Voters’ Meeting will be held, God willing, Tuesday, July 16 at 8:00 p.m. Confirmed men 18 and older are encouraged to serve as voters; all communicant members are welcome to attend to keep informed and lend advice.

Emmanuel’s 125th Anniversary:  Our congregation was officially organized on December 24, 1899.  Our Ladies’ Aid and Church Council have discussed some initial ideas. Considering the planning involved, they suggest we celebrate next summer. That will give us time to contact former members, plan a celebration service and dinner, and perhaps publish a pictorial directory, as we did for our 75th and 100th anniversaries. We can start more specific planning at our July voters’ meeting.



Northland Lutheran High School News:

Matching Funds Gift: Northland’s $25,000 gift for debt reduction has been matched! Praise God! Now, we only have $8,603 left to go to get the total debt under $1M. This is incredible. Let’s pray for Christ to compel hearts to meet our June 30 goal, to continue to quickly eliminate the old debt all together, and to continue to move from surviving to thriving.

New NLHS Video:  Please go to www.nlhs.org or the NLHS YouTube Channel to see our latest video.

Position Opening:  We thank God for his blessings on this ministry through the service of Dawn Willitz. We pray she enjoys retirement. As mentioned prior, Northland has a 7-15 hours/week opening for an Administrative Assistant. Skills needed include communication, organization, problem solving, and computer skills. Please contact Ryan Wiechmann at 715-297-4427 by Monday, June 24.

Special Needs Scholarship Program:  We are in the Wisconsin Special Needs Scholarship Program (SNSP), which gives the family of a student with an IEP or qualifying service plan a scholarship for tuition to Northland Lutheran High School regardless of income. Call and ask for more information if we can assist your family!

Potential Position Opening:  There is a possibility for an opening as a student aid for our Special Needs Scholarship Program for this next school year. Hours more than likely would be each school day from about 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. It would be helpful for us to talk to potential people about this position as we navigate through how quickly we build our Special Needs Program. Please call Ryan Wiechmann at 715-297-4427 if you are interested. Thanks.

More Opportunities to Help:  We have so many opportunities to help with indoor and outdoor projects as well as organization of spaces. We can accommodate almost any time that is convenient for you. If you are interested, please contact Ryan Wiechmann at 715-297-4427 or rwiechmann@nlhs.org. Thanks!

The 30th Annual Wildcat Open Golf Outing is scheduled for Saturday, August 10! A registration brochure is on the round table in our Fellowship Hall.

Housing for Foreign Students: Would you consider hosting a foreign student next school year? We are looking for several families who would open their hearts and homes to a student far from home, here for an American education. The bonus is that we are able to share Jesus with these students. You would receive a stipend for the student’s room and board, as well as new experiences, warm memories, and often lifetime friendships. Call or email if you are interested in this unique opportunity, 715-359-3400 or nlhsoffice@nlhs.org.
