Immanuel Church is blessed with a congregation that generously gives of its time and talent and also provides funding support. Each fall, members of the congregation are asked to consider pledging their financial contribution for the upcoming year. Pledges are then used to create the church's operating budget. This year, with some facilities in need of repair, and as we move further into our search for a new rector, we especially welcome financial additional support. 2017 Pledge Cards are available in the Parish House and the Church. We'll celebrate the ingathering of pledge cards on Sunday, November 6. For more information about stewardship, pledging or supporting our ministry, please contact John Fulton or the church office at 779-3454.
There are also other giving opportunities that you may wish to consider throughout the year:
Memorials and Memorial Funds: If you would like to establish a memorial fund or dedicate a memorial in honor of a loved one, please contact the church office at 779-3454. In the past, memorials have included silver and brass items used in worship services, altar hangings, signs, lights, trees and other facility and property enhancements.
Immanuel Old Church Foundation: The Immanuel Old Church Foundation provides grants to assist people in need and charitable organizations primarily in the local community. In addition to considering individual requests for funds, the foundation also provides scholarships to graduating seniors at Lee-Davis, Atlee and Hanover high schools. Recipients are selected by the schools. To make a donation to the foundation please contact Marion Jones, foundation chairperson for 2015, or Richard Neely, foundation treasurer.
Kroger Community Rewards Fundraiser: Go to Kroger's Community Rewards page and register your Kroger Card. In your rewards details, choose Immanuel Episcopal Church, number 82682 as the organization you wish to help. Then just shop as you normally do at Kroger! Immanuel will receive a quarterly donation from Kroger based on a percentage of total spending by everyone in the program.
