Time again to make wishes come true for the residents of Williston's Luther Home of Mercy. Residents' names are on the front pews in the nave. Select one and fill out the information on the Main Sign up sheet. Take the list with you and shop until you have four of the presents listed. (Sizes, colors, ext. are on the resident's gift list sheet). Leave all presents unwrapped and in a bag (yes, it can be a Christmas gift bag). Complete the gift list with your name and what you purchased and attach it to the bag. Bring the bags to church and place them on the pews near the south entrance. There will be a sign. Remember Immanuel Lutheran Elves, this must be done by Sunday, November 22, 2020.....Merry Christmas
All residents have been adopted. Thank you....and gifts are to be at the church no later than November 22, 2020. Though the doors may be closed, our love is not...gifts can be dropped off during office hours, Mon., Tues., and Fri., 10 am-2pm.
Ministries that provide opportunities and service
Meals on Wheels is a program from the Department on Aging that provides hot, balanced meals once a day through the week to area seniors and home-bound of Lenawee County. The Adrian Senior Center prepares the meals and they are loaded and taken to area senior centers for packaging and distribution. Without this program, some people may not eat...
On a rotating bases, area churches are called to provide volunteers to deliver the packages of food, but during the past few months, volunteers have been hard to find.
If you can deliver meals on one, some or all week days, please let the Senior Center know. You may call (517) 486-2397. Even one day will be helpful! You will be expected to arrive at the Senior Center (Lane St. Blissfield, down town) around 10:45 AM, pack your route's clipboard and coolers in your vehicle (you can get help with this), and run your route between 11:00 and Noon. In the winter months the time is a little later (11:30 to 12:30) due to meal delivery coming from Adrian. Once your finished with the route, come back to the center and drop off the clipboard and coolers and leave---with a smile from helping someone!
When Immanuel has a sign-up sheet for volunteers to deliver meals, put your name down! Immanuel's next sign-ups for 2021: February, 15 through 26, 2021;
June 21-25, 2021; and November 15-19, 2021.
What a great way to show God's love through our actions.
If you have signed up to deliver meals and the weather has turned inclement, call the center (517) 486-2397 to find out if it's open. You may also listen to area radio stations.
