Immanuel Lutheran Church's Concert and Speaker Series is hosting the St. Louis Symphony Ensemble on Friday, April 24, at 7 p.m. This is one of the finest events we have been able to bring to Immanuel in our two years of concerts. Five of the symphony's finest instrumentalists will be with us for an hour of beautiful chamber music. Our beautiful new sanctuary will be an ideal setting for this very special evening. All Concert and Speaker Series events are free and open to the public. Please, bring your friends and family for a wonderful evening.
It is called Holy Week because it is, indeed, the holiest of weeks in the Church Year. It is the week the sins of the world were paid in full. Immanuel's worship opportunities include:
Maundy Thursday, 6:15 with Holy Communion
Good Friday Tenebrae, noon and 6:15
Easter, 6 a.m. at our Cemetery Chapel
Easter, 8 and 10:45 in our sanctuary
Easter Breakfast in the Fellowship Hall, 9-10:30 a.m.
Ash Wednesday is this week. Services are Wednesday at noon and at 6:15 p.m. There is dinner served from 5-6 on Wednesday evening as well. All is designed for families to meet at church, eat together, worship together and be home at a decent hour.
This Wednesday's Lenten dinner is a free will offering and enefits our Comfort Dog Ministry.
Steve Cohen from Apple of His Eye Ministries will be speaking in all services this weekend at Immanuel. Steve was born into a Jewish family. As a young adult He came to faith in Christ and recognized Him to be the promised Messiah of the Old Testament. Steve will share some of his life story and speak about his ministry of outreach with the Gospel to Jewish people.
Only two Adult Bible Classes will meet this Sunday, Dr. Nafzger's class "This We Believe" will meet in the Fellowship Hall and our guest, Steve Cohen, will also lead a class in the sanctuary.
