Special Projects... HELP NEEDED

FAMILY PROMISE:  Our plan is to provide a protein, vegtables, salad, rolls or bread, and desert. Generally, we serve 10 to 25 people, including members from ILC and Trinity. This is an important outreach component of our mission to serve the community - and we hope you will help.

Mowing and Trimming of Grass: God has blessed our ministry. We have a gorgeous large building, a cemetery and 10 acres of land with a beautiful grove a live oaks. He wouldn’t have allowed us to have all these wonderful things if he didn’t think we could handle it all.

This is our home that we all share and we all have a responsibility to maintain and be good stewards of. Each of us need to do our part and then step-up and take care of things that may not normally be our responsibility.

One of the most time-consuming jobs we have around the church is the mowing and trimming of the grass; not only at the church but at the cemetery. Our ‘staff’ of unpaid volunteers is dwindling for a number of reasons. Ladies and gentlemen, we need you to step up, coordinate through the Church Property Committee, and help get things done around the church. If we can’t get more folks involved to help, we will need to pay to get things done… like the mowing of the grass

Transportation Team:  The Board of Stewardship & Mission Outreach is considering establishing a team of drivers who would be available to provide transportation to and from doctor's appointments and medical facilities for members of our church. It would consist of a coordinator and several drivers who would have to be contacted by the person needing assistance three or more days prior to their appointment(s).  Each driver would have to undergo a background check, and we would have to check for valid driver licensing and car insurance. It would be strictly volunteer and there would be no reimbursement for gas.  This is a way of showing your stewardship to God’s people and "To Do Unto Others." If you would like to volunteer to provide transportation or need use of this service, please either send an e-mail to: StewardshipChair@KilleenImmanuel.com  or a note to the board at Immanuel Lutheran Church, 3801 Cunningham Rd., Killeen, TX 76542, to inform us of your interest.

The Board of Stewardship/Mission Outreach is in need of more volunteers interested in joining our efforts in this important work.

Counters are needed to help count each Sunday's offering. It normally takes no more than one hour at the most to do so.   If interested, please notify Arlys in the office or Art.

Education Board - Teachers and substitutes are always welcome. Please contact Randi to help.

Serving on a Board

Lay Ministry challenges you to get involved in the life of our congregation. There's a place for you to share your God given gifts here at Immanuel. Below are some of the programs you get involved with fellowship or can help with. God's watching and were waiting to welcome you! ​         


One project we need more people to get involved is Family Promise - Every member of ILC is encouraged to be involved in some way. Of course we always need the food. You can also come to serve or see what it's all about. Remember that when we keep our promise for these families, we are meeting our stated purpose to Serve the Community - what a special way to share our blessings!


   As always, we ask that anyone who is able would consider the possibility of being a substitute teacher


  • Help in the kitchen:  I want to extend an invitation to anyone to become involved in the work of our kitchen here at Immanuel.  All hands are welcome.  We maintain a list of members who graciously provide food when needed.  If you are able to volunteer to help with providing food for our fellowship, and would like to be added to the call list, please contact Barbara, Fellowship Director, to be added to the list.  Many hands doing God's work make  the work easier!
