Women’s Ministries
Please contact Rose Brewer for further information about women’s ministries at Immanuel.
Altar Guild
The Altar Guild sets up communion for worship services. They prepare and clean the communion ware, vestments and linens. Three or four ladies serve as a team each month. 
Benefit Society
The Benefit Society has been meeting for over 100 years. These ladies meet each month except July and August. They join in lively conversation and Bible study on the second Thursday at 1 p.m. in the All Saints Chapel. The Benefit Society hosts fundraiser lunches and sells greeting cards to support needs at Immanuel and around the world.
Co-operative Circle
The emphasis for Co-op meetings, which has been in existence for over 100 years, is Christian women’s fellowship in support of Immanuel. All women of Immanuel are considered members of the Co-operative Circle! They may be called upon to co-operate with us on the Rummage Sale, Oktoberfest, Ice Cream Social, Bake Sales, Funeral Dinners, or Receptions. Proceeds from these activities may support some missions, but mainly go to projects needs at Immanuel.
Lutheran Women’s Missionary League (L.W.M.L.)
Ladies from Immanuel are members of the Lutheran Women’s Missionary League (LWML), the official women’s organization of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod. The LWML focuses on affirming each woman in her relationship with Christ to enable her to be in ministry among the people of the world. For over 60 years the organization has been encouraging and equipping women to live out their Christian lives in active
mission ministries and to financially support global missions.

information click here.  LWML members attend Zone rallies and District and International Conventions. LWML collects Mites (coins and small bills) for mission work.
Lutheran ladies from several local churches meet every Wednesday at 9 a.m. at Christ Lutheran Church to make quilts for Lutheran World Relief. No former experience is needed to be part of this group. The quilts are sent all over the world to comfort people in need. Click here for more information.
Annual Women’s Retreat
Each year a women’s retreat is held for personal and group reflection on a scripture topic that coordinates with Immanuel theme for the year. Women of the congregation and their friends come together for fellowship, worship, Bible study and fun. They make new friends and during this time away from their otherwise busy lives, they gain new insights from God’s Word and they grow in their faith in Christ, their Savior. Check the weekly outsert announcement for details.

Prayer Chain
Women of the congregation are invited to join the Immanuel telephone Prayer Chain. Prayer requests can be given to Dee Malyater by calling 219-464-8858. An annual Prayer Chain gathering is held before a Lenten service.
