Women’s Ministry began formally at Immanuel in 1929 with ten women dedicated to ministering to each other, to outreach and to making a difference in the lives of others. They formed a Ladies Aid Society that met for Bible Study, to provide support for missionaries, to serve the congregation as Sunday School leaders, to provide meals for the congregation, foster congregation functions and to provide social gatherings to ladies in the community!
Our three women’s groups meet monthly for fellowship, service projects, and Bible Study.
