“Immanuel Reads” Movie Night
Saturday, April 14, 6:30 pm
“Immanuel Reads” is featuring “Same Kind of Different as Me.” A true story based on the best selling book of the same name that we read about three years ago. “A dangerous homeless drifter who grew up picking sharecropper cotton, an Art dealer accustomed to the world of Armani and Chanel are changed by a gutsy woman with a stubborn dream.” The movie was released in 2017, starring Greg Kinnear, Renée Zellweger, Djimon Hounsou and Jon Voight. Show time is 6:30 PM followed by coffee/tea, dessert, and discussion. If you have a favorite dessert you are welcome to add to the potluck selection. Bring a friend!
“Immanuel Reads” book discussion
saturday, June 9th, 5:00 pm
Our next book will be, Elephant Company by Vicki Constantine Croke. The remarkable story of James Howard “Billy” Williams, whose uncanny rapport with the world’s largest land animals transformed him from a carefree young man into the charismatic war hero known as “Elephant Bill.”
Sara Groen, author of Like Water for Elephants writes, “My love of elephants made me apprehensive of reviewing a book about their role in WWII. But as soon as I began to read Elephant Company, I realized that not only was my heart safe, but this book is about far more than just war, or even elephants. This is a story of friendship, loyalty and breathtaking bravery that transcends species.”
A best seller; do not miss this one. The book has been out for over a year and can be found in all the usual places. The book review will be on Saturday, June 9th, at 5:00 PM followed by a potluck dinner at 6:00. Come join us; we always have plenty of food.
Confirmation at Immanuel Lutheran Church, Los Altos
Confirmation is a weekly gathering of young people, usually in 7th and 8th grades. In these gatherings we learn about faith, values, and life through discussion, learning exercises, play, recreation, and service. Confirmation has consistently been one of Immanuel’s most successful and enjoyable programs for youth. We invite youth in your family to participate.
- Weekly Confirmation meetings usually take place on Sundays 5:00-6:00 PM.
- Other youth activities such as outings, movie nights, and retreats are offered as part of the program.
