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 2017. will hopefully be just the beginning of Immanuel-Trinity’s outreach into the community.
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.
Green Thumb Project – “Green Thumb Project” for Lutheran Campus Ministry at UW Oshkosh has grown from last year. The plants were delivered August 28, 2016. Plants donated had been on all the window sills in the sanctuary and other areas after members brought them during the month of August. Delivered were 312 plants.
Adopt a School – Elizabeth Walters Elementary School partnership that was formed last year has received large amounts of school supplies and non- perishable breakfast snack items donated. These will soon be delivered to that facility late this August..
Up Coming – Three Trees Project- starting again in November 2017, we will support Salvation Army, Food for Thought and Elizabeth Walters Elementary School.
