News and announcements from the Immanuel Leidy's Church community.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Shaun Permar, Sr. 6th; Jim Foote, Delton Plank, Miriam Weigner, Herb Wolgemuth 7th; Dennis Gruver 8th; Seth Brunner 10th; Joy Myers 11th.

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY! Justin and Julia Gregory 10th.

THE SERMON TITLE this morning is One Another. David once wrote, “Behold, how good and pleasant it is when brothers dwell in unity!” That sounds quite lovely, doesn’t it? But when the rubber meets the road how does that work itself out in practical situations with Practical applications? This week we will explore several of the One Another verses found in the New Testament. Maybe – just maybe! – they will guide us into healthier relationships within the church. And, who knows, maybe the Lord Jesus will help us improve our relationships at home and at work as well! Wouldn’t that be great!

SLMT MISSION TRIP 2020 SIGNUP is underway! The sign-up sheet is posted on the narthex wall. July 9 through the 19th are the dates. Mark it on your calendar. No one is too young, no one is too old. Likewise, no one is too skilled or unskilled. You simple need to be a ready and willing worker with VBS materials and kids or with maintenance projects and tools. Seek the Lord, perhaps He wants to use you in this year’s ministry to Canada.

SPIRITUAL COUNCIL meets this Tuesday evening at 7:30 in Room 121.

COOKIES FOR NIGHT TO SHINE – Are due in this week. Please remember to bring your cookies/bar cookies to the kitchen by Thursday. Thank you.

LADIES OF LEIDY’S – We invite all ladies of the church to our monthly meeting on Tuesday evening at 7:00 in the Conference Room. In addition to our regular meeting, Judy Leidy will be presenting some of the history of Leidy’s Church. Whether you are older or younger, a lifetime member or new to our church fellowship, you are sure to find this a fun and interesting evening.

PRAYER-POINTERS. Here are two prayer points for this week as we pray for the Gospel Gleanings outreach to the Erukulu people:

Thank God for His patient, persistent purposes for the Erukulu people. Though not known to most of the world, yet they are known to Him, and He is intent that they should know Him.

Pray for the Holy Spirit to keep the Erukulu people on our hearts, so that we can labor in prayer for them even as others labor in word and deed among them.

THE NIGHT TO SHINE HAPPENS this Friday evening! Pray for all elements of that ministry. Many of our own people are involved; many folk from other congregations are involved; many non-church goers are involved in various ways. The gospel will be presented. A blast will be had by all. Many will be blessed. Our facility will be transformed beginning on Wednesday evening after iBlast. We pray many lives will be transformed as well.

FELLOWSHIP LUNCHEON for February happens on February 23rd. Everyone is invited to stay. The Youth have decided to take responsibility to feed everyone. They hope you hang around and enjoy the fruit of their labors.

CONSISTORY meets this Wednesday evening at 7:30 in the Conference Room.

FREE OFFICE DESKS for the taking! We have three solid wooden desks like the ones in the office that need a new home. If interested, please let the church office or Dave Doran know.

THE TBD YOUNG ADULT SUNDAY SCHOOL CLASS that meets in Rm. 111 is planning another service project for Saturday morning, February 15th. We will again be serving breakfast at CHOC (Coordinated Homeless Outreach Center), Building 53 on the grounds of Norristown State Hospital. Please contact Justin/Emma Coale or Jim/Ginna Foote if you are planning to go and we’ll let you know of the  departure time from Leidy’s. (Time varies depending upon need at the center.)

 A WOMEN’S BREAKFAST will be held on Leap Day–Saturday, February 29th. Beginning at 9 am, we will serve breakfast, have a devotional thought shared by our own Verna Bowman, and have everyone on their way back home well before lunch. A sign-up sheet will be posted on the wall in the narthex. Join us—God gave us an extra day in 2020 and we would love to spend part of it with you!

A YOUNG WOMAN from our church family, Glory Griffith, does cleaning, housesitting, and gardening for hire. She can be reached at 610-222-4431 or 267-377-6159.

MEALS SIGN-UP SHEET – Anyone who would like to participate in our meal ministry by providing an occasional meal for members of our Leidy’s Church family in 2020 should sign-up on the sheet provided in the narthex. Here’s how it works: When we see that someone requires a meal due to having a baby, an illness, or as a result of a hospital stay, Alice Kraus will call the names of those who sign up on a rotating basis to cook and deliver meals for them and their families. This is a one-year commitment only, so be sure to sign up for 2020 even if you were on last’s year’s list. Thank you.
