It is our goal to encourage the women of Immanuel to become more aware of the importance of our organization, to become more involved and make it a priority in their lives.  To accomplish this, we will:


  • Affirm each woman through prayer and support.

  • Encourage women to use their spiritual gifts.

  • Support Lutheran World Relief with quilts, kits and clothing.

  • Present a quilt to all who are baptized at Immanuel.

  • Serve the Wadena Rotary Club a meal for their

  • regularly scheduled meetings. This enables us to have the funds to support many ministries at home and abroad, such as the ELCA, World Hunger, Fair Oaks, Empty Stocking, Luther Crest, college scholarships and camperships.

  • Be involved in service projects such as funerals and weddings.

  • Remember our elderly, homebound and bereaved with our visits and prayers.

  • Reach out in friendship to all women and to new members of Immanuel Lutheran Church.
