Community Clean Up

March 28th Clean up Cancelled 

We encourage you to take time this Spring to help out neighbors who may need help in their yards (at a safe distance). 

What a great opportunity to be the church in your neighborhoods.

Easter Egg Hunt

 Cancelled 

With the Stay at Home order, the Egg Hunt and our Egging event are both cancelled.  If you have eggs available to you, you are encouraged to safely “egg” a home in your neighborhood early Easter morning.  Keep health in mind as you pack the eggs (wash your hands or use gloves) and put a note with the eggs that says:

“Jesus loves you and so do we!  From your Immanuel Lutheran Church and School family”  and “Join us for worship at www.immlutheran.org.”

COMMUNION

As a Bible-believing church, we affirm the Scripture’s teaching on the Lord’s Supper. If you say “yes” and “amen” to the following questions, then please, taste and see the Lord’s goodness for you:
Are you baptized in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit?
Are you a sinner?
Do you believe God?s love and forgiveness is yours?
Do you desire to repent and turn away from your sins?
Do you believe the body and blood is present in, with, and under the bread and wine?

Prayer Ministry for 55+ Members

In order to care for members who are more at risk with the Covid-19 virus, we have matched them up with Phone Ministers.  The Phone Ministers are attempting to call our 55+ households every two weeks with a message from the pastors and to see if they have any prayer needs.

If you are a member who is 55+ and do not receive a phone call in the next couple of weeks, please let Pastor Mike know at mlutz@immlutheran.org.  

If you want to put a prayer request in online, click here.

 

Board Nominations

Election of Immanuel members for Church Council and the Board of Elders is fast approaching.  Election will be held at the May Voter’s Meeting.  We are searching for members who would be willing to serve on the Council (one at large member) and ( 5 members) for the Board of Elders.  If you are interested or know of someone who would be a good candidate, please submit their name to Pastor Michael (mheiden@immlutheran.org), the names will be shared with the Nominating committee.  Immanuel’s Constitution Bylaws have specific requirements to serve in office and any suggested individuals must be vetted to determine whether they meet the criteria to serve.  Please submit your name or nomination to Pastor Michael as soon as you are able.    

 Bible in a Year

There is a large group that is reading through the bible in a year together and sharing words of hope as well as insights to the reading.  You are welcome to jump in and join the group any time.  Simply email Karen Reincke at  kreincke@immlutheran.org  to get involved.
