Race & Racial Equity

November 01, 2017

And Who is My Neighbor? Talking about Race and Racial Equity

November 1, 8 and 15

A conversation about race is not easy – it never has been.  The subject brings up our deepest held beliefs about who we are and who we should be.  It can bring up emotions we are not sure how to deal with – emotions that, as Children of God, we need to press in to and explore so that we can learn from each other.

Join us for some continued conversations about issues of race.  Guided by a study released by Lutheran Social Services of MN we will watch some videos, read some short articles and dialogue together.  Come for one or all three sessions.

Nov 1 - What is Race?
Nov 8 - Racism is Sin
Nov 15 - Privilege

The Story Project: Advent Coffeehouse @ Immanuel

November 29, December 6 & 13

Did you know that every one of us is a storyteller?  What better time to share our own stories than during the season of Advent as we prepare for the greatest story of all!  During Advent at Immanuel we plan to gather in the Living Room after dinner around stories, music, and coffee/hot chocolate (Christmas cookies, anyone?) in a casual “coffeehouse” style atmosphere.

Each Wednesday night two to three people will be scheduled to share their story, with a chance for everyone to have informal conversation as well.  We are sure to hear stories of faith and hope, and perhaps stories of waiting or longing, and who knows—there might even be a babe in a manger among them….

Do you have a story “burning on your heart” or a musical selection for “open mic” to share?  Or questions in general?  Contact Pastor Angela Jacobson at angela@immanuel.us.  See you over coffee!

Families Moving Forward

November 12, 2017 - November 19, 2017

Ending homelessness one family at a time

Sign-up to volunteer the week of November 12 -19

Volunteers are needed to help provide for guests in our building: set-up, clean-up, greet on Sunday, cook an evening meal, cook a hot breakfast on Saturday, provide evening hospitality, host overnight and do laundry. 

We will be hosting families:

Volunteer with Families Moving ForwardFamilies Moving Forward (FMF) is a program of Beacon Interfaith Housing Collaborative.  FMF provides services to families during the day and a network of Twin Cities churches hosts the families in their buildings at night. 

The families are tightly screened before they are accepted into the program and only 14 people are accepted at a time. Each evening they are transported by FMF to the church.  We provide an evening meal, hospitality, a “bedroom” for each family, and breakfast each day during the week.  Families are bused by FMF back to the day shelter each morning where they are able to shower and work with FMF staff to get the pieces of their lives back in order. 

Families Moving Forward is aligned with Immanuel’s vision: Called to care. Sent to serve.
