We learned that our neighbor is everyone! The good Samaritan helped even when most would not have helped.
Let the little children come to me. Bring your family to worship this week!
First graders are excited to watch the musical “Beauty and the Beast” performed by Fox Valley Lutheran students. Continue worshiping in God’s house this Lenten season as we gaze upon the cross, and what our Savior has done for us.

UW-Oshkosh Vision Screening 3/9/21
1 in 20 preschoolers and 1 in 4 school-aged children have a vision problem, which is not always easy to detect. Sometimes children have trouble seeing and don’t even realize they are seeing the world differently than others. Healthy vision is important for learning and success in school. For most children, 80% of learning happens visually. Vision problems can make it hard for children to read and learn, and unfortunately, many fall behind in school or show behavioral problems. To make sure your child is vision ready for success in school, we have scheduled a vision screening for students in Pre-K – 8th grade on Tuesday, March 9. If your child wears glasses, please make sure they bring them to school on this day.
This screening will be conducted by UW-Oshkosh nursing students, who are certified volunteers from Prevent Blindness Wisconsin. The nursing students will have been COVID tested before coming to Emanuel.
If your child does not pass the screening, we will send a letter home asking that you schedule a complete eye exam for your child. If no concerns are detected, you will not receive a letter. If you have any questions or concerns about the vision screening, please contact Mrs. Laurie Eidenberger at 920-982-5444.
