A Northwest Synod of Wisconsin educational program
The Lay School of Ministry assists lay people developing a deeper Christian identity and participating in the mission of the whole church.

The school provides students with opportunities to evaluate their past and present ministries, while receiving guidance from peers, seminary professors, clergy, and lay staff.

Senior Bible Study
Join us Wednesdays at 10:15 AM (Third Wednesday of the month only in summer).
This group of senior citizens meets weekly for some study relating to the Bible, the Church, Christian faith, or religion in general. For 24 years, the group has hovered around 10 in regular attendance. Someone in the group brings snacks for coffee. Prayer is always a part of each meeting as well as lots of senior humor. Usually, meetings are at church, but when some of the members are residents at senior apartments, meetings take place there. Recently, non-member residents have been attending the meetings.
Join us Wednesdays at 7:30 PM.
Enjoy singing praises and a willingness to work hard. We strive to rehearse for three weeks in advance for a Sunday anthem. To learn more, email Tammie Delveaux.
Join us the third Monday of the month at 12 PM.
Gather for lunch, a formal business meeting, and a Bible study. Women in the Ruth Circle are involved in several outreach projects throughout the year including hosting birthday celebrations at Severson Home, packing and delivering Christmas cookies for homebound members, and selecting and supporting a Sunshine Secretary to send cards to members during the year. All women of Immanuel are invited to attend.
Material Witness Quilting
Join us two or three Wednesdays of the month from 12 until 4 PM. Check the church calendar for work dates.
Join together with other church members to create beautiful quilts and wall hangings for baptism and weddings. We also create wall hangings for our sister church in Malawi using blocks that our members created, quilts for Luther Park’s Annual Quilt Auction, and quilts for other benefits within our church.
Would you like to knit or crochet prayer shawls to share with our community? We have touched many lives in crisis with a simple gift of a prayer shawl.
Men's Discussion Group
Join this group meeting 2 times per month to discuss book or video series. Check the church calendar for dates.
