Wednesday Morning English Worship Service 
Within the intimate walls of Westminster Chapel worship services are offered every Wednesday morning at 7:30. Services are conducted in English and include a traditional order of worship with familiar music, and prayer. An open end time of fellowship with fun and food follows the service.  It is a wonderful time to overcome the mid-week spiritual blahs.  Come and be refreshed by getting your spiritual batteries recharged.  You won’t be disappointed.

Johnston Fellowship 
Johnston Fellowship, an adult Bible class, which began over 50 years ago and was named in honor of the senior pastor Dr. Paul C. Johnston, is still going strong today. Classes taught by dedicated ministers and spiritual leaders are held in McVay Hall every Sunday morning from 9:00-10:00. Following each class is a time of fellowship and refreshment.  Come and be restored.

Offering Envelopes/Automatic Payments
Offering envelopes available in the cloister, narthex, and office. Please ask an usher or the front desk staff if you would like an offering envelope.  If you would like your pledge to be debited from your account or charged to your credit card automatically, ask an usher for an automatic payment form.

Got Feedback on Recent Mono-lingual English/Spanish Worship? Come 3/25
On Sunday 3/25 (Palm Sunday) after worship, please join pastor Andy and others in the parlor during Convivio time for about 20-30 minutes of conversation (at 12:15-12:45PM) about your experience of taking part in the English only or Spanish only worship services from 10:30-11:30 (before the All-together bilingual portion from 11:30-12) for four Sundays in Lent: 2/28, 3/4, 3/11 & 3/18 and how that experience compares to the regular bilingual services on most other Sundays.

Lenten Home Gatherings
One of the most meaningful ways to engage with our Lenten journey is to sign up to attend one of our home gatherings. At these intimate potluck dinners, we explore together different aspects of our faith in light of Jesus’ journey towards the cross and resurrection. These gatherings serve as a time to connect with one another and walk together through this season. Sign up after worship on Sunday or contact Pastor Andy for more details.

The Second Home Gathering will be on Thursday March 15 starting 7 pm at Hector Figueroa’s Home. Speak with Hector or Pastor Andy to get Hector’s address.

The Third Home Gathering will be on Wednesday March 21 starting 7 pm in the IPC Parlor hosted by Lucy Cortez.

Mental Health Workshop with Promoter Lucy Cortez
Mental health care has improved drastically over the last years, but many Latinos still choose not to seek treatment or stop prematurely. There are several factors that may contribute to these discrepancies with stigma being perhaps the most noteworthy. Stigma hurts people with mental illness, creating inequality and occasionally damaging consequences. In this workshop, we discuss mental illness stigma and review significant concerns to address stigma in the Latino community.

March 17, 2018Saturday 3:30 – 5:30pm in the Parlor Room. Please RSVP with Michelle or Lucy (213) 389-3191 x307

Food Pantry
Immanuel’s Food Pantry would like to remind you food donations needed by the pantry are ready to serve/eat snap top soups.  Please note, we cannot accept condensed soups and regular cans as they are not user friendly to our homeless neighbors.  Also, at this time the pantry is not accepting any clothing donations.

Craft Table During Worship
At Immanuel we welcome the presence and energy of children in our worship. We invite and encourage families with children to come to the front of the sanctuary to take advantage of the craft table we have set up.
