Caring for the Community

Immanuel Lutheran Church

Immanuel Lutheran church has been actively doing outreach into the community. We were limited somewhat by Covid 19 but alot of our activities happened before March. It was decided that the money set-aside for quilt making and bierock bake-off would go directly to the Wilson/Dorrance Food Bank where there was great need with the pandemic. Our quilters used existing fabric for the 21 quilts that they made this year.

For the first time ever all churches participated in the Prayer Walk in Wilson. Uniting our Christian community is one of our goals. Our appreciation school breakfast in last October for approximately 24 teachers and staff created a good and positive relationship. A church-wide effort enabled the community to provide a free Thanksgiving meal to low income residents. One-fourth of the meals were delivered to "shut-in" senior residents. God's Work our hands saw 15 persons helping clean gutters, saw tree limbs and bushes, paint buildings, and help with general yard clean-up for various elderly residents.
