Opportunities to get involved:
There is no better way to feel part of our congregation than to get involved! We need your talent, treasure and time! Although many of the activities below have been modified or temporarily suspended due to COVID, the following is a list of some of the areas where we where we need YOU!! If you would like to find out more about a particular volunteer opportunity, please contact Waverlyn Karch, our church secretary, at 812-867-5088 for more information.
Jonah's Fish Fry
Jonah’s Fish Fry is our one-and-only church-wide fund raiser open to the public that we will ask you to participate in! The event is held annually on the Friday prior to Mother’s Day. At the fish fry, we serve unlimited fish and have other delicious home-made sides and desserts. It takes a “congregation working together” to make this event run smoothly, so you will be asked to work a shift for set-up/preparation or during the event and to also provide 2-3 desserts to be served that evening. It is a LOT of fun (and hard work) but the community outreach we experience is a wonderful way to promote Immanuel and our Christian faith! Much of the profit that we enjoy is donated to worthy charities/individuals in our community. Look for sign-up sheets in the lounge during the month of April to see how you can help.
You do not need to be a Bible scholar in order to help teach the youth in our church. All you need is a willing heart and a love of children! We need helpers and teachers alike for all age groups from 2 years of age through high school. If you feel that God is leading you in this direction, please contact our Sunday School Superintendent, Ann Welte.
Vacation Bible School
Vacation Bible School at Immanuel is usually held in June or July and runs for 4 days. There are many opportunities to serve, both the week before the event and during the week of Vacation Bible School. Look for postings in the bulletin about the event. Again, if God is leading you in some way to serve children, please contact our Sunday School Superintendent, Ann Welte, at firstname.lastname@example.org or call her at 812-459-3903
