As you look around your neighborhood, school, or workplace, what needs do you see? Is there someone who is struggling to make ends meet? Is there a space that could become beautiful? Is your heart burning to do something? Immanuel wants to support you as you live out your faith in the places you go. With funding help from a bequest by Harry Paulsen, you are invited to reach out to make someone’s life better, to make a space more beautiful, or to show others you care. Projects can be as simple as taking someone to buy a coat or as complex as planning a neighborhood organizing project. Amounts depend upon the project. Let the Spirit guide you as you dream of ways to make a difference in the world. Questions? Speak with Margaret Horstmann, Ray Peterson, Tom Eyre or Dana Simonson. (These grants are ongoing)
