Meals on HeelsEvery Saturday since 1987, volunteers from the Immanuel congregation, and their friends and associates, have provided a hot meal to shut-ins referred to Immanuel’s Meals on Heels program by Search and Care, a not-for-profit organization whose mission is to help frail and isolated older people live safely and independently in their own homes on the Upper East Side of Manhattan.

Two teams handle the weekly meals program: those who cook and those who deliver. Cooks can choose to prepare anywhere from 5 to 10 to 20 or more meals consisting of a hot entree, a vegetable and optionally a dessert. Tins are provided, and the program coordinator adds bread and a bottle of milk. Those who volunteer to deliver then take the meals to each of the participant’s apartments on Saturday morning beginning around 11 a.m.

The Sixth Sunday of Easter @ Immanuel Lutheran Church
May 1 @ 11:00 am

The Bible Lessons:
Acts 16:9-15, Psalm 67
Revelation 21:10, 22–22:5, John 5:1-9

Dear Members and Friends of Immanuel Lutheran Church,

This Sunday’s Gospel story is one of my favorite stories: John 5, about the invalid who waited at the Pool of Bethesda in hope of a miraculous healing. Some people wait a long time to be well again. This man waited thirty-eight years, until that good day when Jesus entered that place and healed him.

I might have mentioned this good thing before: our church is being awarded the “Carnegie Hill Neighbors 2016 Enrichment Award.” That will be at a benefit evening on Tuesday, May 17. I am attaching a scan of the front page of Carnegie Hill News, along with its photo of our church!

I hope to see you in church this Sunday. Have a good weekend, everyone. God be with you.

In Christ,
Pastor Fryer

Monday Evening Bible Study @ Martin Luther Room (in church office)
May 2 @ 6:30 pm – 7:30 pm

The Gospel of St. Luke

6:30 p.m. on most Mondays during the academic year, beginning February 1st, 2016 
(call the office at 212-289-8128 to confirm if class is on)

St. Luke’s Gospel is probably the loveliest book ever written. And it is true! In it we find the Christmas story with the “shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.” Only in St. Luke do we find the beloved parables of the Good Samaritan (Luke 10) and the Prodigal Son (Luke 15). This liturgical year is the year of St. Luke, and so let us make this Gospel the subject of our Monday Evening Bible Study, beginning February 1st.

One of the nice things about our Monday evening class is that you should feel free to attend as you are able. If you must skip some classes, that’s okay. Simply join us when you can. In the Sunday worship folder the day before, we try to remind people what we will be studying on Monday evening. And you can always email me to get on track.

Our class takes place in the Martin Luther Room, in the brownstone next to the church on 88th street,
(two doors to the right of the church steps).

Pastor Gregory P. Fryer

Pentecost @ Immanuel Lutheran Church
May 15 @ 11:00 am
Voters’ Assembly @ Our undercroft
May 15 @ 12:30 pm

Our regular springtime Voters’ Assembly is the third Sunday of May, which this
year is Pentecost Sunday, May 15. That is also Pentecost Sunday – a high
festival Sunday.

We are aiming for this to be a cheerful Voters’ Assembly — maybe with one of
our Children’s Choirs singing for us. The theme is Volunteer Sunday. We are a
mighty congregation, but a small one, so far. We are about one hundred active
members (confirmed, contributing, and communing members). Lots of our
members volunteer for the various jobs in our congregation and liturgy, but we
could use more help. We sure could! So, we plan to have volunteer sign-up sheets
available that good Sunday, and hope that you will lend a hand. I bet there is
something that each of us could do, and it would be good for us to do, to the glory
of God and for the benefit of our congregation.

Pastor Fryer
