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

HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Genevieve Steve 14th; Esther Davis 15th; Nicholas Keeble 16th.

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY! Arlin and Donna Moyer 12th; Sherman and Karen Focht 14th.

THE SERMON TITLE this morning is The Covenant Prosecutor. Throughout the history of the church (and world) people have been interested in prophecy. People have longed to know what the future holds. However, that is not the only purpose Biblical prophecy fulfills. Throughout the Scriptures, Biblical prophets not only foretold events they also forthtold events. This is to say that they interpreted the actions of the people in light of the commands of Scripture. Under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit they often served as prosecutors highlighting Israel’s infidelity. They do the same for us today.

CHEF TONY is in need of some help with the Shepherd’s Breakfast Meeting on Saturday, September 12th. If you are able to give a hand, contact Chef Tony or the church office.

RALLY DAY HAPPENS NEXT SUNDAY! A fresh, hot breakfast will be served beginning at 8:30. Each class will meet its teachers for the coming year, and kids entering first grade will receive a Bible. Everyone is invited to the festivities.

For those of you who didn’t do so, please drop a photo of your children off at the church office or email an electronic version to ASAP so we can print them. We would love to have all our children being prayed for.

We need to pray now more than ever . . . Our communities are hurting, our people are divided, and there’s fear and uncertainty all around us . . . So let’s join together and do the most important thing, and that is to pray.” To register for this trip, please call the Leidy’s Church office at 215-723-8707.
