THE CHURCH COUNCIL: Will meet on TUESDAY August 13 at 6:30. 

BOARD OF CHRISTIAN EDUCATION: Will meet on August 5th at 5 pm

The softball game rained out on 6/30 and again on 7/28 has been rescheduled for 8/11 3:30 at Immanuel.  Hopefully it will be dry this time around. 

MEN'S BIBLE BREAKFAST: Men are invited to come to have a bite to eat, socialize and enjoy a Bible study that looks at the causes of conflict as outlined in the epistle of James. God's Word is the most important part of peacemaking and the only way to facilitate true healing and comfort. The next study will be held on August 24 at 9 am.

AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAM:  On August 25 after church in the basement, there will be another organizational meeting to discuss and allow all members to contribute to the particulars of an after-school program.  Everyone is welcome to attend.

P-16 TAP APPLICATIONS DUE: P-16 Tuition Assistance applications for assisting students attending WELS preschool, elementary, secondary, and college level schools are due on September 1 for the fall semester. Applications are available in the narthex to the right of the education bulletin board. Please place in the Board of Christian Education mailbox when completed.

YOUTH GROUP FUNDRAISER: Copies of the Wausau Sunday Herald are available by the entrance door. A portion of every paper purchased supports youth group activities. 

NLHS SCRIP SALES: You can purchase gifts cards for your everyday expenses such as gas, groceries, clothing, household items or dining out. A percentage of each gift card you purchase is given to NLHS as a rebate. Cindy Whitson is available to assist you.  

RECORDING THE SERMONS AND LIVE STREAMING TO BASEMENT:  We have started recording the sermon while simultaneously streaming the entire service to a TV downstairs. The purpose of the TV downstairs will be to eventually provide a cry area for children and a way for parents to remain connected to the service.  We will be trying new locations for the camera, new settings for recording etc. so expect to see things change from time to time.  If you know someone who would like to hear and see the sermon it is available on the Christ Facebook page at, or contact your elder and let them know.
