. . . . in Women of Immanuel
Our plans for the Women’s Retreat are progressing very nicely. We hope you have “Saved the Dates of April 13th and April 14th”.
Our theme this year is “Come and Renew”. And we are using Luke 10:27 as our focus point.
“He answered “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind; and, Love your neighbor as yourself”.
Additional updates will be in the Sunday bulletins.
REMEMBER: “BRING A FRIEND”.
Pat & Eileen

Let’s Talk Coffee!
For several years Immanuel has supported the Lutheran World Relief Coffee Project which is a partnership between LWR and Equal Exchange (Which seeks greater equity in international trade). Farmers in several countries support themselves and help their communities by selling coffee they grow on small plots of land. The coffee is organic (no chemicals) and no rain forests are destroyed. Immanuel supports this mission by using the coffee for all events and for fellowship time on Sundays. It is equally available for your purchase, too.
This great coffee comes in either whole bean or grind, regular or decaf, and in 3 different roasts; in 12 and 16 oz sizes. An explanation of the roasts is available in the coffee cabinet. Price comparisons show that the coffee competes well with other organize and specialty coffees available in the area.
Using this Fair Trade coffee provides continued support to LWR in their efforts to help people become self-sustaining and financial contributors in their own communities. You are encouraged to support these small farmers by trying our the coffees and discovering your favorites.
See you around the coffee cabinet@
