Committees & Groups

Immanuel has a number of ways you can use your skills and direct your interest in supporting our mission. Council has designated three active committees that work in special directions.

Outreach Committee – Developing and supporting community needs through social ministry and inviting visitors and new members into the Immanuel family.

Youth and Family Committee – Developing ways and events to support family growth in faith and operates the Sunday School program.

Property Management Committee – Operates and maintains the physical building and landscape Immanuel lives in.

Two other very active groups serve in special ways and have been doing so for a number of years.

Quilting Group – Designing and sewing quilts for world community needs with other churches in the synod, making baby blankets for our baptisms, and supplying quilts for our High School graduates.

Pasty Group – For those who enjoy social cooking, this group is a major fundraiser for special projects needed to improve and maintain our building and landscape.

In the fall, a harvest food collection is held for 4 weeks and the donations are sent to the Salvation Army food pantry. Financial donations are made to several community services helping seniors, people with disabilities, and people in need.

Every spring the Famous Immanuel Lutheran Church rummage sale is set up in church. Profits are used in our community projects for people in need.
