The youth of Immanuel will continue their tradition of spending Holy Saturday serving our congregation and neighborhood with service projects. Youth and their families are invited to participate as we set up and prepare foods for the Easter Breakfast in the gym, fill eggs for the children’s Easter Egg Hunt, clean and scrub the church buildings inside and out, work on landscaping around the property, and go out into the neighborhood, helping to do yard clean-up and other spring cleaning projects for our neighbors. Wear your work clothes, bring some gloves, and join us whenever you can, beginning at 10am! Our time together will conclude with the Saturday evening Easter Vigil Service at 7pm. Food/drinks throughout the day will be provided. Adults, families, and friends from Immanuel and Martin Luther are welcome to join in.

Thank You to all who helped with Super Subs in February!
