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. A 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.

Deacons Meet, Pray, Distribute Emergency Aid
This past Sunday September 30th the board of Deacons met after worship. Together they prayed for people in our church who are in need, shared pastoral care needs of congregants, made plans to offer support to said individuals, and planned for the preparation of communion and the collection of the offering.  They also received applications for emergency aid and made decisions about distribution of monies from the Deacons Fund.

The Deacons decided to offer emergency financial assistance to 5 different individuals who applied for funds to cover the following basic needs: rent, electrical bills and medical bills. The total distributed from the Deacons fund across the 5 checks was $1190. Please pray for the Deacons who dedicate their time to efforts such as this as well as those receiving this assistance, that it might help alleviate suffering and hardship.

Because this Sunday is a special offering (Peacemaking) of the PCUSA, we will be doing our regular (first Sunday) Deacons offering NEXT Sunday October 14th. Please give generously so we can continue to offer vital Deacons emergency aid to our community and neighbors in need.

Prayer Time with Pastors
After worship, pastors will be available for a brief moments of individual prayer. Those wishing to speak with one of the pastors may wait near the front of the sanctuary to the side of the doors where the pastors will be greeting worship participants as they leave.

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.

Preparation for Liturgists
The liturgists meeting has been rescheduled for Sunday November 11th . Please let MarAnthony or Pastor Steve know if you are able to attend.
