IMMANUEL CHURCH HIGHLANDS

2016 ANNUAL MEETING

SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 7, 2016


Notice is hereby given that the Annual Congregational Meeting of Immanuel Church, Highlands shall be held on Sunday, February 7, 2016 at 12:00 noon in the church Parish Hall located at 2400 West 17th Street, Wilmington, DE 19806.


DOES ANYONE CARE?

The Prayers of the People that we are using at the 10:30 a.m. liturgy include “We pray for this wonderful world that God has lovingly entrusted into our hands. May we have the wisdom and will to so preserve, conserve, and tenderly care for all the created order.” Does that mean that we are praying for scientists or governments to do something? Does God expect us to be actively involved, too? What are our responsibilities as individuals and as a parish? If anyone from either the 8:00 or 10:30 a.m. liturgies is interested in pursuing this topic, starting in Late January, please contact me by Epiphany, January 6th.

DECEMBER FOOD PANTRY DRIVE

     We are collecting groceries for the needy in our area. The donations will be brought to St. Stephen's Food Pantry and to the newly opened Choice Pantry on Baynard Boulevard, both operated by Lutheran Community Services (LCS). Every bag of groceries includes a prayer or uplifting reading for the client to help fill spirits as well as tummies.

     LCS is the largest purveyor of food for the Food Bank of Delaware. Financial literacy classes and nutrition classes are offered at both locations. Despite the improving economy, there is still a great need for food in Wilmington, with half going to feed children. Most clients are the working poor.

     No time to shop? A $5.00 donation will feed a family of 4 for three days. Checks can be made out to: Lutheran Community Services, Inc. and given to the parish office, Fr. Kim, or Sue Welles.

Thank you! Outreach Ministry
