What is Happening at Immanuel
There will be no Sunday School in July. We will be taking the summer off.

On Sunday, July 7 we will have an “Old-Fashioned” Red, White & Blue Celebration for July 4th after church. Join the congregaton for a double event. Wear Red, White & Blue and bring your favorite summer food to share. We will commemorate the birth of our Nation and the retirement of PIB (Pay It Back) program. Let's celebrate!

NOTES FROM THE OFFICE
If you borrow it, please return it…
IF you borrow items from the office such as a stapler, scissors, tape, etc. PLEASE return them back to the place where you found them.
Did you know?????
It is customary to make a donation to the church when asking that the Sanctus Light be lit in memory or in
honor of someone? This helps pay the cost of buying the candles.
If you would like a church t-shirt, please let Diana Haude know along with the size needed.
We will need 20 to make an order. Cost should be around $20.00 each.
HELP THE SPRING HISTORICAL MUSEUM KEEP ITS DOOR OPEN!
In 1995, a group of native Spring-ites put together the little museum across from Immanuel Church in an effort to preserve the lifestyle of early Spring. The goal was to have visitors see the nature of a real Texas town in the 1800’s and 1900’s, populated with railroad people, sawmill workers, and German farmers, not merely a pretty shopping village. The museum captures that history, and visitors from the 50 states and all over the world stop by to learn about the evolution of small towns in Texas.
The museum is non-profit, revenue coming in from parking and sales in the gift shop. The workers are all volunteers. The problem is that many of our volunteers are going the dark way of the aged, or moving to be close to family, or, in short, wearing out. We have few docents left, and we face closing the doors!
Could you volunteer three hours a month to preserve the Spring Historical Museum? That one three-hour shift could help keep the story of old Spring alive.
PUSH PIB GOAL MET
We met and exceeded our goal of $20,000 by July 4 for the Push PIB campaign!
Our final total raised was $29,457.This will officially close the PIB fundraising effort.
The matching gift of $40,000 brought the total to $69,457. Thanks to all who gave!
