On June 18th  we will host our annual guest night salad supper at 6 p.m.  Workers in the kitchen are Joan Iverson, Ruthann Nelson, Ann Romo and Twila Simonson.  Dorothy Hjermstad will give devotions.  Lori Lyon has decorations and Charlene Anfinson and Mary Aadahl are in charge of the program.  Emmanuel ladies are to bring a salad.  Croissants and butter provided by the WMF.  The ladies from Hauge along with other friends and neighbors are encouraged to attend.

Our next business meeting will be held on July 9th, after the 10 a.m. brunch honoring our senior members.  There will be a combined Bible Study using our current monthly study book. All ladies of Emmanuel are welcome to attend. 

Summer is soon upon us and with that we get busy with many activities.  The WMF board will put reminders of our upcoming events in the Sunday bulletin along with the Herald so please watch for those. Have a safe and fun summer!!

The Net, Naknek, Alaska


We are getting down to the wire and I still could use a couple more volunteers that would like to serve at our coffee house ministry called The Net, in Naknek, Alaska. Our most urgent need is to find two ladies that could serve at a minimum, from June 24th through June 29th. We could also use one or two more ladies from July 15th through July 27th. We are specifically asking for ladies because of the sleeping accommodations that are available during those dates, but could also accept a couple of men from mid-July to the end of the month. Dates are flexible, so if you are interested, please contact Bobbie Overgaard, Manager (The Net) at: sbchilebean@gmail.com or by calling 805-705-9556. The link to the online application can be found at:



You may not be able to volunteer at The Net, but you can support this ministry another way. We depend upon supporters like you to stock our shelves, with Bibles and Christian reading material, but also with baking supplies. The Alaska Gift Registry is now up to date with all of our needs for the summer. If you can help us meet those needs, we sure would appreciate it!

The Gift Registry is at: https://www.myregistry.com/visitors/?registryid=337412 .

As you may know, we bake hundreds of cookies and cupcakes and we make gallons of coffee and hot chocolate for our visitors. They may come in because of the sweet smell of fresh baked goods, but many times they leave with so much more. When our visitors arrive, we are often able to share the Gospel with them and sometimes they walk out the door with their very first Bible. By placing your order now, we can ensure that our supplies arrive in a timely manner. You can ship supplies outside of the Registry, but by using the Registry we are able to track what has been purchased and at the same time, demonstrate to others what is still needed. Won’t you please help fill our shelves at The Net?
