Gods Work, Our Hands

GOD'S WORK, OUR HANDS

Immanuel-Trinity Lutheran Church experienced great cooperation from the beginning of “God’s Work Our Hands” projects started mid-year 2015 – which continues on into 2018. Hopefully that was the beginning of Immanuel-Trinity’s outreach into the community this year and the future.

Projects in 2018 will include :

Three Crosses Lenten Outreach – Generally Lent is a time in which we “give something “up”. This year we invite the members of Immanuel-Trinity to “Take something on!” Jesus said “Take up your cross and follow me”. Three Cross are the focus.
                                                                   
 
  • One for "Elizabeth Walters Elementary School " with an ingathering of hats, mittens, socks and underwear for elementary-middle school children. Please check the weekly bulletins as needs change,
  • Another  cross to support "Food for Thought"– Continues from 2017 with Immanuel-Trinity members donating items. Fond du Lac Food Pantry is also in need of many items. Click NEEDED ITEMS for information as the months needs change.
  • A cross to support for the "Men’s Shelter", hats, gloves, shampoo & personal care items.
