WELCOME TO OUR JUNE 25, 2017 WORSHIP SERVICE
No matter who you are…you are loved.
No matter what you have done…Christ died for you.
We are a hospital for sinners, not a haven for saints.
 We are glad you are here!
Dear Emmanuel Family – Words cannot express the gratitude we feel
for all your prayers and support during the time of Dick’s illness and
at the time of his death.  All the words of encouragement, visits,
cards, hugs, food and prayers have helped us through this difficult
time.  Dick is now standing tall and in no more pain.  God is good!
Irma Bland and family

The Emmanuel Car Show Committee would like to say thank you to
everyone who supported this year’s car show.  We had 48 entries
from 12 different communities.  This year’s Best of Show went to
Dennis Haga from Galva, IL, in his 1966 Chevy truck.

A sincere thank you for the expressions of sympathy shown to us at
the passing of my (Bob’s) twin brother.  Also thank you for the
prayers and concerns I (Margo) received as I recently had chemo.
Bob & Margo Atherton
