Garage Sale

May 04, 2019

8 a.m - 1 p.m.
The Garage Sale is a “Free Will Donation” event. This means that during the sale there will not be prices marked on individual items. This greatly reduces the work required by those setting up the sale and makes it more manageable. We do encourage everyone to donate as they are able for goods purchased, as funds earned at the Garage Sale support our youth attending life changing faith events and trips!

As you start your spring cleaning, save items for the Immanuel Garage Sale! The sale is a great event for the entire community and your help is needed.

NEW THIS YEAR
Sorting clothing donations is the most time consuming task when setting up for the sale.  We are requesting that:

More about Families Moving Forward

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.

Building Up Celebration Concert

Building Up Celebration Concert

Building Up Celebration Concert

Sunday, April 28, 6 p.m.

To celebrate our Building Up Capital Campaign Immanuel welcomes Dan Schwartz.

Dan Schwartz

Starting at the very beginning, his dad’s interest in The Grand Ole Opry and his mom’s fondness for American Bandstand immersed Dan Schwartz in a wide variety of great music. This influence resonates in the range of music he composes, records and performs today in his solo work and with group: The Neighborhood Trio. Dan has written and released nine CDs and has been featured on several internationally released acoustic guitar compilations including Narada Records Masters of Acoustic Guitar. His recordings have earned him a nomination for guitarists of the year (Minnesota Music Academy) and local Folk/roots album of the year (Mpls. St Paul Magazine). He has a new solo CD in the works – a collection of finger-style guitar tunes played on harp guitar and acoustic lap steel, to be released July 13, 2018. Read more…

Easter Sunday

April 21, 2019


Easter at Immanuel

Holy Week

Maundy Thursday, April 18
7 p.m. with Holy Communion and music by Servant Song.

Prayer Vigil
As faithful friends, we sit quietly in the Sanctuary, contemplating his great compassion and love for us.  We might pray silently, read scripture or meditate at the prayer stations provided. Sign up for a 30-minute time slot.

Campfire Vigil
8 - 9 p.m., Maundy Thursday
As Jesus prayed in the garden called Gethsemane shortly before his arrest, he asked his disciples to keep vigil with him, to stay awake and support him in his hour of need.  True to our fallible nature, Peter, James and John were asleep in no time.  In the centuries since, Christian disciples around the world have marked this night by staying awake, watching and praying with Jesus in the hours leading up to his crucifixion and death.
Before leaving Immanuel pause/linger at the campfire outside the sanctuary.

Good Friday, April 19, 7 p.m.
In Calvary’s Shadow: A Tenebrae Service
Led by our Reformation Choir and chamber orchestra, In Calvary’s Shadow is a deeply moving service of penitence and forgiveness.
