We are GO FOR LAUNCH for an Adair Circuit-wide worship service! Sunday, November 4th, at 3:00 pm followed by dinner in the Fellowship Hall. Here at Immanuel, Greenfield, IA. Let us make use of this group page and build our community. Invite your fellow members to join us. This is a great way to pass along information and particularly to publicize this worship service. We have two months to plan, publicize, and promote this event. Let us aggressively spread the word to everybody about this mass worship service and mass choir. More information to follow. For right now, the order has been given. We are a GO to proceed. Invite your families, friends, and neighbors. This worship service could change lives. Praise God in our Lord Jesus Christ!

This is another message from Pastor Schweitzer from Greenfield. Good morning to you!

Plans continue to come together for our Adair circuit Reformation service. Special and beautiful floral arrangements have been ordered for the altar and upgrades to the sound system will also be completed in time to accommodate all the pastors who will lead worship in the chancel. We are also planning to video record the worship service and make it available both for those who would like it as well as on our congregational website for anyone to view. The music has been selected for the mass choir. Rehearsals will be on Sundays, October 21st and October 28th. The rehearsals will be at 4:00 pm here at Immanuel Lutheran in Greenfield. We need one more trumpet player. We have two. They need to be here by 3:30 pm on those two rehearsal dates.

The response to this special worship service has been 100% positive. I pray this will be a rich and wonderful worship celebration for everybody in our circuit That faith will be strengthened and that the Lord Jesus will be honored and glorified. Plan to come and invite your fellow members, family, friends, neighbors, believers and unbelievers alike. If you have any questions, suggestions, or ideas, let me know.

Looking forward to seeing you.

Lord God and Heavenly Father,

I pray for Your special blessings and Your abundant grace to be poured down upon this special worship service and for all Your faithful people who will be here to worship you. We rejoice in the truth of the Reformation – that we are saved by grace alone and nothing else. For this amazing and wonderful truth we thank You. It gives us good reason to have this special worship service.

For always we give our thanks and praise to You in our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.

We’ll visit again between now and November 4th. Invite your fellow Adair circuit members to join us on this Facebook page.

Blessings in Christ,

Dr. Keith Schweitzer

Kids Come First News October 2018

Kids Come First


Open from 5:30 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.

Thank you to Janet and Fred Klute, Marie Parrott and Mike Parrott for putting up the fencing north of the playground. This will give the kids a fenced-in area to play and also makes us compliant with QPPS, (Quality Preschool Program Standards) which states that we need to have a fenced in area for the children to be able to play.

The kids have been having fun playing with play dough and making slime. The staff has been reading books to them and then do an activity that goes along with the book.

We still have openings for children ages three to twelve. If you know of anyone in need of daycare, have them come in and talk with Kids Come First. Parents only have to pay for the times that they are clocked into the system.

If you would like to come and read to our Kids Come First or to the preschoolers you are welcome to do so. Just let us know a day or two ahead that you are coming and what time you would like to come so that we are able to adjust our schedules.

Little Lambs Preschool

811 Oak St.  712-243-4421

Both the three and four-year-old preschool classes have been in session for a month. It is fun to see the new faces in our classes as well as some that came last year. Some of the things that they have been working on are: the color blue, recognizing their names, learning to play with each other, and do many craft projects. We have heard a lot of singing and reading of books coming from the classrooms. Thank you to our teachers for the great job that they are doing.

In the month of October we will be learning about fire safety. Both classes will be able to get a ride on the fire truck. This is also a day when we invite our dad’s to come and join us.

The preschoolers will also be having a Halloween Party on October 30th and the 31st. The kids will be able to wear their costumes, play some games and do some Halloween activities.
