On these workdays, the ladies work on various projects: Ongoing projects include: Pillowcase dresses for children in Africa, Quilts for Lutheran World Relief, the Backpack program for children in the local schools, marking Bibles for Prisoners.

Leisure Lutherans

Older Adults need no recruiting in the church for they come and come, more and more, and live longer and longer. We seek to intentionally enhance the older adult ministry of Immanuel Lutheran Church.

Ongoing programs include monthly newsletters, monthly “Leisure Lutheran” meetings, tape ministry to the shut-ins, Bible study at nursing homes, adoptive grandparents for confirmands, children’s worship bags, volunteer projects at the church and school, Parish Nurse and Health Ministry, hearing devices for the hearing impaired, travel and other fellowship activities, interest groups and an annual musical to “celebrate the years”.

“Even when I am old and gray, do not forsake me, O God, till I declare your power to the next generations, your might to all who are to come.” Psalm 71:18
