Immanuel Lutheran
We are a community of believers on a mission of touching hearts and changing lives with Jesus

SERVE

As a church body we lift up the words of the Great Commission, “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing and teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you.” Matthew 28:19-20

With the Great Commission as our foundation we now seek to join Jesus in his mission field!

Church

There are many ways you can serve on a Sunday from being a greeter, lector, usher, acolyte, view team or help lead music.  If you are interested in serving in one of these ways please email our secretary Debbie McNamer at lutheran@consolidated.net.

Meals on Wheels

Meals on Wheels is a long standing ministry providing the opportunity to touch hearts and lives in the community. It involves picking up meals from Cougill Manor and delivering them in Charleston on Thursdays (pick up at 10:45 AM and distribute for hour). Sign up sheet can be found in the back of the sanctuary. Contact Melanie Mills [Please enable javascript.] or Doug Bock [Please enable javascript.] for any questions.meals-on-wheels.gif

Youth Ministry

As a youth ministry we seek to live out our faith through acts of service. The youth have served Immanuel as acolytes, helping our view team, annually setting up Christmas decorations, and more! We have also partnered in the community to help Charleston's Food Pantry, Standing Stone Community Center, Camp CILCA & more! Interested in being part of these future efforts? Contact Matt Slaybaugh at slaybaugh.matt@gmail.com.
