Our Fellowship Committee organizes activities throughout the year that we will add to the calendar as they are scheduled as well as overseeing the fellowship groups that are sponsored by Immanuel. We generally have an outdoor service on the first Sunday of June followed by a picnic, as well as a progressive dinner sometime in the spring. Other events are scheduled when possible.
Here are some of the ongoing fellowship opportunities we have going on.
Men’s Movie Club – The Men’s Movie Club is a group for men, post-high school age and older, to gather to watch a movie and then discuss it both critically and theologically. We will be watching Edge of Tomorrow at the parsonage (next door to the church) on Nov 17th at 6:30 pm. Snacks and water will be provided. Feel free to bring your favorite soda or other snacks and drinks with. Please contact Pastor Demski for more information.
Men’s Prayer Group – This is a time for men of the congregation to join together in prayer and fellowship at Wayne Collmeyer’s house (209 Crosswinds Court, Waterloo). They meet on the 2nd Monday of the month. Contact Wayne (618-719-7265) for more details or for directions.
Women’s Christian Ministry – WCM engages in many activities throughout the year. Some activities revolve around service projects while others are more exclusively related to fellowship.
Quilter’s Guild – Join us every Tuesday from 1-4 pm and every Friday from 5:30-8:30 pm. We meet in the education building. All levels of quilters are welcome! Contact Taryn Niemeyer (618-939-7982) for details.
Scrapbooking Days – Do you enjoy scrapbooking? Do you enjoy chatting with other ladies? If so, then these monthly days are perfect for you! Scrapbook Days are typically held on the first Saturday of each month in the multipurpose room (gym) at Immanuel, always from 9:00 am to 11:00 pm. Here’s a flyer with more details and dates! Email Lisa Clamors (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you would like to be added to the contact list. All proceeds benefit Immanuel’s various ministries.
For All Adults
Book Club – The book club is a small group for avid readers. This group meets together to discuss various books each month throughout the year. The book club meets in the library at Immanuel at 7:00 pm on the 1st Monday of each month (October-May) and on the 2nd Monday in September. All are welcome to join in their discussions!
For Junior High and High School Students
BASIC (Brothers And Sisters In Christ) Youth Group – Grades 6-12
In addition to Bible and Topic Study on Sunday mornings, the youth get together for fellowship once a month (usually the third Sunday afternoon). While Pastor Demski may address a specific topic with the junior high students, and then the high school students, this is a time for honest round table discussion on whatever topics those in attendance wish to discuss. Throughout the year BASIC serves the community, goes on retreats, and overall strives to prepare students to face the difficulties they face in life. The church supports BASIC, but BASIC also raises funds throughout the year for many of its activities. If you’d like more information, please feel free to contact us. You can also join our Facebook Group for other events and information.
