Special Projects... HELP NEEDED



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.


We are organizing coordinators and crew for our annual Bazaar on Nov 4!  We can use lots of hands to work in the booths for 2 hour shifts during the day.  Please see Phyllis Sawyer to volunteer!  Also, contributions of baked goods (Coordinators Maxine Lettman and Glynda Lucas) and crafted items are being accepted!  Our Bazaar is our primary fund-raiser for the year which allows us to continue our charitable work, at Immanuel, in our community, and the world!  We have a few vendor spots available for vendors of hand-made items. (Coordinator Phyllis Sawyer)

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 Gordon.

Education Board - Chris is working with the high school group and would love to have a second person to come along as a team teacher. Also, we are wanting to start a nursery age group, and so we are looking for a teacher for the "little" class.  We'd had an individual lined up, but that is not going to be possible.  So we ask that you prayerfully consider your talents in this matter.



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! ​         





STEWARDSHIP BOARD

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!


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

FELLOWSHIP BOARD

  • 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 Phyllis, Fellowship Director, to be added to the list.  Many hands doing God's work make  the work easier!

LAY MINISTRY BOARD

  • 2017 will mark the 500th year of the Reformation. Lay Ministry is looking ahead to make it memorable for our congregation. The Reformation is a huge historical event in the life of the Christian church. It changed the church forever and we have Brother Martin Luther (and our Heavenly Father) to thank for it all. Join us as we prayerfully plan events to commemorate this exciting event.
