MAKE A DIFFERENCE
The Immanuel church family always looks for ways that make a positive difference in the lives of people who are hurting and/or in need.
Immanuel's desire to make a difference is rooted is the story of God's love for the world.
From supporting a local food bank to the ELCA's international Disaster Response, Immanuel Lutheran Church strives to meet needs in the local community, the nation, and across the globe.
"For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’ “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’ “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’"
(The Gospel of Matthew 25:35-40)
