October 27th is Reformation Sunday. That afternoon at 2:00 p.m., Immanuel is hosting the third Reformation Hymn Fest in the sanctuary, featuring Paul Soulek as organist. Paul is the Director of Parish and School Music at St. John Lutheran Church in Seward, Nebraska. He is a well-known organist whose skill will amaze you. We are also inviting local organists and members of other Lutheran churches in our community to join us for a wonderful hymn fest of favorite reformation hymns and special music. Don’t forget – it’s free!
Following the hymn fest, at 4:00 P.M. all are invited to attend our traditional Oktoberfest in the Organ Gym. Come to the free German dinner prepared by our own ladies. In return, we are asking for a free-will donation, all of which will be given to help Sergeant Stephanie Criss, a native of Colorado Springs and member of the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office. SGT Criss is being treated for colon cancer and the medical bills have become overwhelming. So please join us for some great German food and consider helping SGT Criss and her family at the same time.
We’re happy to report that Immanuel is installing a brand new elevator and it will be operational very soon. Many of our members and visitors will benefit from an elevator. We’re grateful to the Lord that we provide this service to anyone attending worship services, Christian education classes, and many other activities occurring at the church.
