Baby Shower for Merci's Refuge
The April Stewardship project is collecting needed baby items for Merci's Refuge. Merci's Refuge is a living/alternatives pregnancy resources center in Champaign. Every week women visit the pregnancy resource center looking for options and seeking help. Please see our flyer for more details. Through these opportunities, we see women choosing LIFE for their preborn baby and finding LIFE in Jesus Christ. Please place gifts in the pack-n-play in the breezeway.
St. Joseph Food Bank
The March Stewardship Project will be for the St. Joseph Food Bank. Let's see if we can fill the shopping cart in the church breeezeway with items for the St. Joseph Food Bank. When doing your own shopping, why not purchase some extra items for the food bank.
"Valentines Boxes for Students"
Our February Stewardship project was our Valentine Boxes for Students. We collected cookies and other goodies for Immanuel's college students and active military serving overseas. We packed & shipped 25 Valentine boxes!
"Sock it to 'em Campaign"
Our January Stewardship project was "Sock it to 'em". The number one thing needed in most homeless shelters is socks. All types of socks are needed, not only for men and women but kids as well. Thank you to everyone for making this campaign a great success. We collected 297 pairs of socks and delivered them to the Multicultural Community Center in Rantoul.
"Shop with a Cop"
THANK YOU to everyone who donated to December's Stewardship project. We collected $865 for "Shop with a Cop"
