Let Us Witness God's Love and Support

Wow, our “Summer of Love” is almost here.

We are in the midst of planning for the Memorial Day Parade, Blessing of the Animals Service, Summer Jams Concerts, Gratiot Cruise, Vacation Bible School and MCREST. Furthermore, we are working on restoring our original wood doors, a plan to keep our flower gardens free of weeds and special ways to engage our community through social media.

I want thank everyone for working so hard to plan and put together those wonderful opportunities, as well as all the planning, effort and you put into everything we do at Immanuel. If you would like to help with any of our events, please contact, me and I will make sure you have an opportunity to help. However, sometimes life happens, and things do not go as we planned. Yet all those things are still part of God’s plan.

Immanuel, we must understand in the midst of our “Summer of Love”, not everything will be perfect, but God will be there to support us. Our efforts to Love his people, will bear fruit. Once this summer has passed, it is my hope and prayer that each of us will be a True Witness to what God has done in this summer in the life of his ministry here at Immanuel UMC.

will leave you with this scripture Ecclesiastes 3: 9-15

What do workers gain from all their hard work
10 I have observed the task that God has given human beings.
11 God has made everything fitting in its time, but has also placed eternity in their hearts, without enabling them to discover what God has done from beginning to end.
12 I know that there’s nothing better for them but to enjoy themselves and do what’s good while they live.
13 Moreover, this is the gift of God: that all people should eat, drink, and enjoy the results of their hard work.
14 I know that whatever God does will last forever; it’s impossible to add to it or take away from it. God has done this so that people are reverent before him.
15 Whatever happens has already happened, and whatever will happen has already happened before. And God looks after what is driven away

 Amen!

For I can do everything through Christ,
who gives me strength.
