Let’s be frank. We live in the richest country of the world. Part of putting our “faith in action” means sharing our financial resources, as well as serving and volunteering. All we have—including our money and our abilities—are gifts from God to be used faithfully to care for this world and all its people.

Your gift at work
Your financial giving through Immanuel supports ministries that nourish our own faith formation and practice, and also reach out to our wider community in concrete ways. Money given to Immanuel funds everything from Sunday School to the work of Lutheran World Relief for earthquake, tsunami and war victims.

Giving to Immanuel is also a major funding source for Immanuel Community Services Food Bank, Recovery Program, Community Lunch and Hygiene Program.  Our giving also helps to keep this beloved hundred year old building in shape so that we will have a place to host our ministries.

Online giving
