“God Is The Super “SON”day Champion!”
Greetings to you in the name of Jesus, our blessed hope! As Super Bowl Sunday approaches, I was praying about what the Lord would have me share with you this week, and I believe that what He wants you to know is that God is the Super “SON”day Champion! You may say, “Hold on there again, Pastor Willie, how do you know that this Sunday God will be the champion?” I know because God said so. In Revelation chapter 11:15 at the beginning of the seventh trumpet judgment the Bible tells us, “Then the seventh angel sounded: And there were loud voices in heaven, saying, "The kingdoms of this world have become the kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ, and He shall reign forever and ever!" 16 And the twenty-four elders who sat before God on their thrones fell on their faces and worshiped God, 17 saying: "We give You thanks, O Lord God Almighty, The One who is and who was and who is to come, Because You have taken Your great power and reigned.”
This Sunday is Super Bowl Sunday, one of the most important, or at least
the most widely watched athletic events of the year. Super Bowl Sunday
has become perhaps the largest of the January or February holidays. The
teams are focused on the game that’s coming up. The fans in the stands
and the viewers facing their television sets are focused on the game. The
advertisers are focused on this event.
This Sunday we at Immanuel will celebrate Super “SON”day! The festivities begin Sunday morning at 9:30 with Super Sonday School, then a wonderful worship service at 10:45, followed by a Terrific Tailgate Food and Fellowship (Covered Dish Luncheon). I know that you are already making plans to prepare your favorite delicious dishes that everyone will enjoy. Please prepare enough for yourself and another family, because we hope to have lots of visitors who will discover the miracle of Immanuel on Super Sonday. I want you to begin to pray that God would reveal to you someone who needs to be in Sunday School and in the church service this Sunday. Invite them to come and be introduced to your church family and the good news of our Lord and Savior.
In Christ Jesus Forever,
Harold Fields will be leading this eight week study. The cost of
this course which is open to the entire congregation is $15.00. If
you are interested in enrolling in this class, please get in touch with

THERE WILL BE NO MEN’S PRAYER BREAKFAST IN FEBRUARY.
THE NEXT MEN’S PRAYER BREAKFAST WILL BE
God is good and God’s people are good! And nowhere is this demonstrated more clearly than at Immanuel. Last March I was given three months to live and this is February and I am getting better each day. The Bible says that by Jesus’ stripes we are healed and all of your prayers helped to make this a reality for me.
Words can never begin to express my gratitude to you for the myriad of things you have done for me during my battle with cancer. The disease and treatment are so difficult in themselves but you strengthened me. Your many generosities are overwhelming and I give you my thanks from the bottom of my heart.
May God bless each one of you, Mary Anne McLellan
