. . . . in Women of Immanuel
Our Women’s Retreat, scheduled for April 13th and 14th is fast approaching!
We need your help in planning this great event so watch for information on the Friendship Card in the month of Janu-ary and offer your help.
We hope that everyone has noticed that this year you “Can Bring a Friend.” More details will be available as planning progresses.

In total we allocated $14,000 to local and global missions. Details of this will be available in our annual report or may be accessed below.

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@
