Camp Luther News | Camp Luther’s staff and Board of Directors have made the difficult decision to postpone the opening of the summer youth programs at Camp Luther until June 28. Please know this decision does not eliminate the possibility of ministry later in the summer. The staff and Board will continue to monitor the situation, make decisions, and give information as soon as they are able. This summer is going to look different, but God’s faithfulness remains the same. And the staff can’t wait for the day when they get to welcome you to camp once again. For more information and updates visit www.campluther.com/covid19

United We Can | Due to these uncertain times, United Way of South Wood & Adams Counties has decided to cancel United We Can for 2020. We would like to extend our thanks to the Wisconsin Rapids Rafters for graciously agreeing to postpone the contract to 2021. In addition, we would like to thank those teams who have generously built food sculptures in the past. In the past eight years, United We Can has leveraged over 47,000 pounds of food to fight food insecurity right here in south Wood County. “There’s no crying in baseball”… and so, we look forward to United We Can returning in 2021.
Highground Education Days | 2020 Highground Education Days will be held Oct 6-9 at The Highground. This is a very unique opportunity for students Grade 5 – 9 to learn about The Highground and many other associated topics. The students will spend a full day at The Highground, receiving a tour with many interesting presenters giving more information on history, culture, personal military and/or Highground experiences …and more… along the way. Each day at Noon, the Daughters of the American Revolution will present a display of Flag history, etiquette, and an actual Flag Retirement ceremony in which a retired flag, unfit for being flown, will be taken apart and properly burned. Most students and adults have never witnessed a formal Flag Retirement ceremony. This is always a very special lesson on respecting our nation’s flag and those who have served under it. Some of the other topics that will be presented more in depth will be: Native Americans that served in the Vietnam War; the story of Mitchell Red Cloud Jr, Medal of Honor recipient in the Korean War; Lao Hmong culture and current living conditions; and much more! All students and adults attending Highground Education Days are able to bring a small Ziploc bag of soil from their home or school to be incorporated into the Dove Mound tribute.
How can I give to Immanuel?
As a church community we still have bills to pay and ministry to fund, as well as over 40 people on our payroll. We rely on you and your financial support. As our opportunity to gather offerings in-person is no longer an option, now more than ever we need you to help sustain our offerings.
There are a number of ways to give to Immanuel and they are listed here:
Joyful Response: Talk to the church office to get set up with automatic giving and we will mail you a Joyful Response form to fill out and mail back to us along with a cancelled check.
Giving by Mail: Mail your offering to..
