Senior Adult Ministry (S.A.M.)

We have many active Seniors at Immanuel who enjoy spending time together. Whether that is in Bible Study on Tuesday morning followed by brunch at the Olympic II, hitting the links on the golf course or traveling together, you are sure to make great connections here at Immanuel. 

Ministry to Older Adults

At Immanuel we strive to meet the needs of all of our members from the moment they are born to the time God calls them to be with Him in heaven. As our members get older, their spiritual and physical needs change and our Pastors, Elders and a wonderful group of people involved in our project compassion work to meet those needs. Below you will see a list of current ministries being offered to both our older members as well as members of our community. If you would like more information about any of these ministries, please contact our church office. 


  • Ministry to the Homebound

    Almost every day, our pastors, elders and Immanuel members make visits to our home bound members in their homes, care centers or assisted living centers. We spend time visiting, praying, reading scripture and administering the Lord's Supper. If you or a loved would like a visit, please contact our church office. 

  • Chapel Services

    In addition to individual visits, our pastors participate in weekly, b-monthly and monthly chapel services at the following Wisconsin Rapids area care centers: 

    • Atrium Care Center....Wednesdays at 2pm
    • Edgewater Haven..... 1st and 3rd Thursdays at 1:30pm
    • Harmony House....2nd Thursday at 2pm
    • Strawberry Lane....Thursdays at 10am
    • The Renaissance....2nd Thursday at 2:45pm (Bible Study Format)
  • Hospital Care Visits

    Many of our members find comfort in knowing that God is by their side when a Hospital stay is required. Our pastors make regular visits to the Riverview Hospital, St. Joseph's Hospital in Marshfield and Aspirus Hospital in Wausau. If you or a loved one is hospitalized, please contact the church office so our pastors may visit and provide spiritual care. You may also alert the Hospital as part of the admission process that you are a member of Immanuel Lutheran in Wisconsin Rapids and often we will be contacted on your behalf.
