What is a prayer vigil? Prayer is something we all can give. For centuries, Christians have gathered before important events to pray. Prayer encircles stewardship of our time, thoughts, and lives.  Please join us in spiritual preparation and prayer as we mark the season of Lent. Lent is the 40 days before Easter that mark Jesus’ journey to the cross.  The disciplines of Lent self-examination, prayer, fasting, sacrificial giving and works of love. Guided prayer stations located throughout the sanctuary will provide Scripture and prayer suggestions. All ages and families are welcome.  


Lent Stewardship Focus 2021

During the 40 days of Lent, we focus on Christ giving himself to us on the cross. As his disciples, we respond in gratitude with our own acts of charity, service, devotion, and prayer. For four weeks we will explore being faithful in little things, faithful with much, and faithful with all God has given us. We will invite you to complete a financial commitment for 2021. 

Lent & Stewardship Packets – Please pick up.

  • Packets include
    • A letter and 2021 Mission and Ministry Folder.
    • A commitment postcard for your 2021 financial commitment to Immanuel Lutheran. 
    •  Daily Devotions written by IMLU members. (see download link below if you’d like to access them from your phone or computer) 

Lenten Soup Suppers

Although we will not meet together due to the pandemic, we invite you to have a simple meal of soup and bread one night a week. Please post pictures and your favorite soup recipe on our Facebook page.

Making soup is forgiving, just like our God! A simple soup supper marks that the 40 days before Easter are different. The simplicity of the meal reminds us that we do not rely on bread alone, but upon God’s Word. One might consider the cost savings of a more simple meal as a donation to a charitable cause such as LWR Baby Care Kits.
