Perhaps it doesn’t take too much imagination to guess what these members are all about! The purpose for the Community Care Team is to lead Immanuel into a greater presence in the local community through a ministry of care and compassion. Some of the projects undertaken in past years include the collection of school supplies for students at a public school; Thanksgiving pies to the employees of Olivette; participating in Habitat for Humanity; and support for Nurses for Newborns. We have recently begun preparing and serving meals at the Sts. Peter and Paul Shelter in Soulard on the 1st Mondays of the month.

 

Through these and other such efforts, we are “letting our light shine” and hoping many will come to see the face of Jesus. If you have a heart for mercy ministry and would like to be a part of such service, please contact Suzanne Hough (432-0195).
