Women of Spirit

The “Women of Spirit” of Immanuel are women of the church.

All women are invited to join us in helping with various church events.  We commit ourselves to

Grow in Faith, Affirm our Gifts and Support One Another in our Callings.Women-of-Spirit-437x218

As part of all of this, we share fellowship and friendship.

Typical activities include:

  • Create holiday baskets for our shut-ins.
  • Make palm crosses for Palm Sunday.
  • Plan meals for special occasions.
  • We assist the church in funding of special projects that are not in the budget.

“Women of Spirit” meets several times a year to organize our activities.   For details on events call the church office (773) 743-1820.
