Projects in 2017 will include :
Three Crosses Lenten Outreach – Generally Lent is a time in which we “give something “up”. This year we invited the members to “Take something on!” Jesus said “Take up your cross and follow me”. Three Cross were the focus. One for "Support to our Partner schools" with an ingathering of hats, mittens, socks and underwear for elementary-middle school children, another cross to support “Food for Thought “, snack items, raisins, juice pack, single serving items for kids, and one to support for the "Men’s Shelter", hats, gloves, shampoo & personal care items.
Food for Thought – Continues from 2016 with Immanuel-Trinity members donating items the Fond du Lac Food Pantry is in need of. Click NEEDED ITEMS for information
