The Vacancy News

March 29, 2020
**DATES AND TIMES OF EVENTS MAY BE CHANGED 
OR CANCELED DUE TO THE SPREAD OF THE COVID 
19 VIRUS.**
 The Elders have met through our new conference call portal and 
have decided to move forward with the call process. Times are 
difficult but they always have been, and will continue to be, as 
we have learned through the preaching of the Word. The call 
committee will meet this Monday, March 30th to decide on the 
final three recommended candidates from the five we inter-
viewed: Daniel Grimmer, Mark Birkholtz, Jonathan Mumme, 
Kevin Mann and John Taggatz.
Call Committee: Andy Schmitt 
Mark Mathe 
Chris Neumann 
Alex Ourada 
Dan Kaiser 
Terry Ourada 
Rachel Mumme 
Nancy Eberhardt 
Elizabeth Laubenstein 
 We are optimistic that the Safer at Home order will be lifted on 
April 24th and if it is, we will hold our quarterly congregational 
meeting, or a call meeting, tentatively, on April 26th and/or 
May 3rd. These dates are yet to be determined. 
 We are working diligently to keep everything within our congre-
gation on a normal even keel. The service bulletin is prepared 
every week for our prayers, intercessions, weekly devotions and 
news. We will continue to email them to our members. Please 
share with our members that do not have internet access. A 
phone call reaching out to them and reading them the bulletin 
and inserts will help us all deal with our social isolation. 
 Pastor Scheblein has taken the initiative to create and host a 
weekly prayer service available to us on YouTube. The directions 
are as follows:
1. Go to YouTube.com
2. Search>> EMMANUEL LCMS ADELL
3. Click on the Big E in the circle
4. Click on the video (Emmanuel Lutheran Adell, WI March 29, 
2020 LENT 5)
5. PLEASE HIT THE SUBSCRIBE BUTTON AND LIKE 
THE VIDEO SO YOUTUBE KNOWS WE EXIST.
 We are in the process of having all our bulletins, newsletters and 
YouTube videos available on our website www.emmanueladell.org
This site, unfortunately, has been neglected and we are working 
to get it up to date. Please visit it daily as we improve and update 
the site.
 A request for “Safer at Emmanuel” yard work crews has come 
to mind. Could we get individual or family volunteers to rake 
and clean the campus grounds? All hours and times would be 
allotted to one individual/family unit, and the area that is next in 
need of attention. I do believe this would be in concordance 
with the governor’s directive as we keep our social distance with 
only one family on the grounds at any time. Email Andy Schmitt 
if you are interested. 
 To add or delete prayer requests from the bulletin’s prayer list, 
please contact the Church Secretary at (920) 994-9005 or by 
email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
 In case of death or illness, please contact Mark Mathe. Please note that these 
numbers are for Emmanuel emergencies only. Please use these 
numbers for their intended purpose only and should only be 
shared with congregation members.
