Dear disciples of Jesus at Immanuel Lutheran,

Each year I am allotted two weeks for continuing education study leave to participate in events, personal reading and reflection. This past week I engaged in learning through Luther Seminary's Faithful Innovation Summit. Through online presentations I was able to hear from church leaders all over the country addressing how to pivot and adapt ministry during this unique time in which we are living. This will continue to be a work in progress not only for our congregation but in partnership with others.

This Sunday we have a unique opportunity to be in partnership with our Northwest Intermountain Synod as well as our Global companion synod, the Ulanga Kilombero Diocese in Tanzania. You are invited to this Prayer Service that will happen over Zoom at 12:00 noon. Please see the details in the article below. I look forward to seeing you in worship on Sunday!

Your partner in ministry,
Pastor Gretchen
