Racial Justice Conversations

October 21, 2020

October 21

A Racial Justice Statement for Immanuel has been written by a group of members to state our intention as a congregation to continue to work towards justice in the world, particularly regarding race issues. The proposed statement, as shared online, has been presented to the Church Council. The congregation is invited to participate in conversations about the statement and the ongoing ministry of justice at Immanuel. Conversations are scheduled on Zoom:

Proposed Racial Justice Statement: 

“What does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?”–Micah 6:8

Immanuel Lutheran Church commits to advancing racial equity and justice by following our vision, “God is calling us to reach deeper into our congregation and further out into our community to better know and care for one another.” We confess our participation in the sin of racism, which includes things we have done or left undone. God calls us to be a vulnerable community of listeners and learners who seek to understand and oppose racism in ourselves and our society.

Immanuel Lutheran Church is called to care and sent to serve in pursuit of racial justice.

Coping with Covid (SALT)

October 22, 2020

SALT (Seniors Actively Living Today)

Mary O’Brien will be speaking on coping strategies during this time of COVID.  Mary currently teaches in the Minnetonka Community Education area and leads a class on Stress Management for the 50+ crowd.  Mary has served as a classroom teacher, licensed parent educator, manager of youth, and family services programs.  

Join Zoom Meeting: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/86910690130?pwd=S0Y1M0xhOUcvWFpJK1pURGVjMEltdz09 Meeting ID: 869 1069 0130 Passcode: 025605

Mary began her work as a Community Educator with a local non-profit, teaching childbirth education classes. Assisting adults during this transition encouraged her to leave the high school classroom and focus on helping families. She spent her career as a Licensed Parent Educator at the Edina (MN) Family Center; Coordinator, then Manager of Youth and Family Services Programs at St. Louis Park (MN) Community Education; Director of Community Education for the Hastings (MN) Public Schools. Mary's specialty is working with others so that they can make a difference, either in their own lives or with others they work with. She has developed curriculum; influenced philosophical changes in the workplace and, most importantly, listened carefully to address the needs of those with whom she works.
