“The Bible as the Word of God”

Note from Pastor  Fryer: Our congregation was invited to study a proposed teaching statement on Holy Scripture for the North American Lutheran Church (NALC). It has been written by a friend of our congregation, Prof. David Yeago. The Commission on Theology and Doctrine has invited us to study this document and to prepare study questions that might help congregations across the land as they will someday study the document too.

Please join us on Monday evenings as often as you can for this fascinating study of “The Bible As the Word of God.” Vicar Caleb Douglas and I will provide copies of the statement and lead the discussion. The Martin Luther Room is in the church office building two doors to the right of our church front steps. Welcome!

Midweek Lent Series @ Immanuel Lutheran Church

Midweek Lent Series @ Immanuel Lutheran Church | New York | New York | United States

In preparation for this year’s midweek Lent series, Vicar Caleb Douglas and I invited the people of our congregation to share some of their favorite Bible stories with us. We mean to preach on them during these midweek Lent services. We received many more Bible stories than we can use this Lent, and so Vicar Caleb and I have decided to concentrate simply on some of the Old Testament stories. As we preach, we mean to keep in mind what the story can teach us about Jesus as he journeys to the Cross for our salvation. Here is the schedule:

+ February 21—Pastor Fryer to preach on Jacob wrestling with God, Genesis 32
+ February 28—Vicar Caleb to preach on Joseph forgives his brothers, Genesis 45 and 50.
+ March 7—Pastor Fryer to preach on Moses and the burning bush, Exodus 3
+ March 14—Pastor Fryer to preach on Hannah and her prayer for a child, 1 Samuel 1
+ March 21—Vicar Caleb plans to preach on Elijah on Mt. Horeb and the “still, small voice” of the Lord, 1 Kings 19.

Meals on Heels @ Parish office (122 East 88th Street)
Mar 3 @ 11:00 am

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.

Meals on Heels 2For more information on Meals on Heels, to volunteer, or or to make a financial contribution, contact Coordinator Davida Goldman. She is reachable at work during the day at 212-627-2288, or via this e-mail: davida (at) firstthings.com
